The events and experiences this month with Destination Florence

In September, summer gently slips away, making room for those returning from holidays and the new arrivals in Florence. Fresh belongers are formed – those who are starting a new life, a course at university, or a job in Florence. Full Florentines and adopted ones are back, as are the other lucky visitors arriving who have chosen September to enjoy the beauties of the cradle of the Renaissance.

And we say Be.Happy! Be happy with all the experiences of the months just gone by, and be ready for many new adventures.

The Rificolona Festival is no doubt a highlight of September in Florence. Ona, ona ona, what a beautiful rificolona! The chant of the historical and popular Florentine festival will be heard sung by adults and (above all) children who parade through the streets of the historic center on Friday, September 7, illuminated by the lights of the traditional colored paper lanterns.

On the last Saturday in September, Florence celebrates the Carro Matto (literally means, the crazy cart!), a historical re-enactment of the traditional festival to bless the new wine arriving from Rufina, inaugurating the new wine season. The cart carries 1500 flasks of Chianti arranged in a pyramid and is pulled by a pair of white oxen, with the parade featuring drums, flag-wavers, and even a cannon!


Decibel Open Air – from September 9 to 10, there will be a total of 48 hours of top-level electronic music, with many national and international DJs taking to the stage during the festival. Take a look at the programme.

Firenze Jazz Festival is one of the most noted festivals of its kind and takes place from September 6 to 18 with more than 100 artists in the sites and squares of Florence. See the line-up.
