Villa Fiorentino a hub for culture in Sorrento

 
In the centre of Sorrento, just off Corso Italia, Villa Fiorentino provides an elegant setting for cultural events and exhibitions.
The villa was chosen as a residence by the Fiorentino family and completely refurbished in American style in the 1930s.

During the war it became a refuge for famous people, including the tenor Benamino Gigli, who sang O Sole Mio and Torna a Surriento there in honour of Signora Fiorentino.
On the death of the lady of the house, the villa with its beautiful gardens, was bequeathed to the city of Sorrento and has now become the headquarters of Fondazione Sorrento, an organisation dedicated to raising awareness of the area’s rich heritage of art and culture.
Visitors to Sorrento will have the chance to take a look at the interior of Villa Fiorentino, at Corso Italia 53, during an exhibition of the works of Mario Sironi, the Italian painter and illustrator, between 21 February and 20 April, 2014 .
The exhibition will be open daily from 10.00 -13.00 and 16.00 to 20.00, staying open until 21.00 on Saturdays and Sundays.

  1. We should admit that this all looked exceptionally easy to use, yet that we never utilized the kitchens - except for taking a couple of frosted lagers from the icebox! As the proprietor is a previous culinary specialist, he readies every one of his guests' dinners all through their stay, differing the hotness or structure of these to his guests' tastes.Pet friendly hotel in centerville iowa

  2. As a matter of first importance, individuals who shape a culture talk a similar dialect, and utilize different methods for imparting complex thoughts, for example, craftsmanship, writing, silver screen, and so on. my blog
