Museo Galileo, Conference Hall and Library
On Sunday 3rd February, the Museo Galileo's library will become an 18th-century salon with scientific shows, musical entertainment and coffee tasting. Characters in magnificent epoch costumes will enliven the afternoon and visitors will be able to listen to short talks (in Italian) on botany and on the different extraction techniques of the world's most consumed beverage. The music programme, offered by the Conservatorio Luigi Cherubini in Florence, will include pieces by N. Paganini and M. Giuliani:
Ilaria Pratesi, guitar
Francesco Corrado, violin
We would like to thank Lavazza for the coffee tasting, the Bottega Filistrucchi for the wigs, the Conservatorio Luigi Cherubini for the music programme and the Politecnico di Torino for the scientific collaboration.
The event is part of the initiatives included in the Festa della Toscana 2018.
