On 19 September 1945, a year after the liberation of Florence, some executives, workers and employees of Officine Galileo, gave birth to flog (Officine Galileo Employees Foundation).
The Flog is therefore, first of all, the expression of the will of reconstruction and revival of the city of Florence, out of the tragedy of war, which not coincidentally was from the working world.
In 1945, then he began the adventure of Flog; it is important to recall the highlights.
For a few pounds (then), but with great sacrifice, they were purchased about 4 hectares of Montughi hill.
Today we are able to assess the importance that had that purchase Whereas after many decades are the only hectares of land taken away from speculation that devastated the hill.
Later it developed the Cultural Activities on the traditions and old crafts of Tuscany.
This activity continued with a 'truly original insight into those problems so far (to Italy), but today disruptive, of' racial integration in multi-ethnic societies.
But they took the body the Media Library of Popular Traditions , the Peoples of the Music Festival, the Festival of Film Ethnomusical : these important cultural events are the most ancient expressions, in Italy, of multiethnic cultural activities.
In 1972 he was inaugurated the Auditorium , where in addition to a gym, and various spaces for the Flog Sports Groups, there is a room for 1000 people where about 150 concerts are planned, from October to May each year, from Flog W Live .
Culture, Sports, Entertainment, the three pillars are therefore now on which is based the activity of Flog; its modern and efficient facilities, served by parking and restaurant, are attended by more than 150,000 people a year through more young people, Italians and foreigners, who are on the Puget one of the most important meeting points of Florence.
