At the Poggio Valicaia Museum Park "Summer belongs to everyone"

A few kilometers from Florence and Scandicci an enchanted place where you can walk barefoot in the woods and sleep in the trees. Also on the program are shows, concerts, cinema, sports and workshops in the name of a delicate, free and safe conviviality.

A summer “for everyone”, accessible to families, young people and the elderly. This is the one proposed by Green Philosophy, the association that - starting from Sunday 27 June until 11 September - offers a rich calendar of events and initiatives at the Parco Museo di Poggio Valicaia: a few kilometers from Florence and Scandicci, a place enchanted where you can walk barefoot in the woods and sleep in the trees. Also on the program are shows, concerts, cinema, sports and workshops in the name of a delicate, free and safe conviviality.

The program kicks off on Sunday 27 June at 11 with La Scalzeggiata curated by Marzia Stevenson Maestri of the Italian Society of Travelers: a guided barefoot path to recover the balance of the body through the soles of the feet and to be amazed by the emotion of contact primitive with nature. The proposal is accessible from the elderly to the little ones, welcome with soft shoes (entrance with small refreshment € 10).

Throughout the summer it will be possible, thanks to suspended tents, to fulfill the dream of sleeping suspended among the trees. A unique and authentic experience in contact with nature and in complete safety, by the social cooperative Giglio del Campo Onlus (more information ).
