Tours and other initiatives with free participation, in celebration of the 80th anniversary of "Montevarchi Città," to learn about the history and secrets of the Valdarno town, which on May 18, 1942, obtained the title of "city" by Royal Decree.

The tour is scheduled for Saturday, May 21, at 2:30 p.m., with a meeting in Piazza Varchi: it is from the heart of the historic center that a real journey of discovery will begin, exploring the streets, squares, palaces and monuments of Montevarchi, which is also famous for being the birthplace of Benedetto Varchi, an Italian humanist and historian.

From the market to the walled city to the development outside the walls, the walk will reveal corners, place names and signs that tell the story of urban evolution from its origins to 1942.

At 3:30 p.m. in Piazza Varchi there will be a conference on the city’s illustrious figures, where the lives and activities of 15 figures who distinguished themselves along an almost 700-year stretch of history will be retraced.

From 10 a.m. city museums will be free to residents.

Info: To participate in the tour, reservations are recommended at the following numbers: + 39 338.2419829 (Laura Bonechi) or 339.2948020 (Roberta Soldani)
