GUIDED TOURS IN PISTOIA ITALIAN CAPITAL CITY OF CULTURE
The heart of our guided tours is the historic center of the city which dialogues with the other centers of art and culture of the suburbs, in a kind of widespread and interactive museum : it is no coincidence that from the month of January a laser beam links Palace Fabroni with the Celle farm, the two main places of modern and contemporary visual arts, in the center of Pistoia the first, in the suburban outskirts the second . This year in a guided tour of the town you will discover the charm of medieval streets but also the vocation to contemporary art thanks to Marino Marini, Fernando Melani, Roberto Barni, local and international artists at the same time. It is in the Marino Marini Museum, housed in the monumental complex of the convent of the Tau, that from the month of February 2017 themed guided tours are offered every day and, on weekends, workshops for children.
