For years now the Medicean Month has been a regular appointment in Florence every summer. It is a series of theatre shows on historical subjects performed in various venues and focusing on the characters that over the centuries formed the Medici family.
From 10th June, a new show entitled Mondi in Minore (Minor Worlds) will be performed in the streets and squares of Florence.
Not all members of the Medici family were memorable characters… lots of them were as obscure in their time as they are today.
The show presents four characters who, roaming through present-day Florence on a sedan chair, meet some of the children of Ferdinand I and Christina of Lorraine.
All these characters are prey to their passions: Don Lorenzo, a dog lover searching for his own dogs who have run away during a theatre show in which they played the main role; Cardinal Carlo, not very pious but always ready to enjoy life, brought home after a night on the town; Eleonora, an insignificant girl, with no suitors and no real place in the world; Don Francesco, a soldier, shy and awkward with women.
Mondi in Minore weaves its way among characters and anecdotes in the streets of Florence.
The itinerant show – on foot – leaves from Piazza Santa Maria Novella and lasts approximately one-and-a-half hours.
The dialogues are in Italian.
Dates of performances: 10, 12, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 22, 25, 27, 28, 29 June and 1, 2, 3 July.
Shows start at 9 pm in front of Santa Maria Novella.
Tickets € 14.00; concessions € 12.00.
