Le Murate is the main center of art and contemporary music in Florence. It includes a cafe, a library, a box office for the city’s major events and a gallery for creative workshops. The building’s history is enormous; it was the former prison of Florence but has now become a symbol of freedom and culture. Ideally located in one of the most characteristic neighbourhoods of the historical center of Florence – between Piazza Santa Croce and the lively district of St. Ambrogio – it is a place full of cultural fermentation and development.
