Illuminations and Art Games for boys and girls


A festival to experience San Gimignano through play and participation

In the beautiful medieval town of San Gimignano, the Festival "Illuminations and Art for Girls and Children - Theatrical and Musical Itineraries in San Gimignano" will be held on December 1, 2 and 3. An exploration of the town, littered with stories, visions and fun.

On the occasion of the lighting of the Christmas illuminations, Friday, December 1 at 4:30 p.m., the historic center of the village will come alive with free cultural and recreational activities for girls, boys and families. Storytelling and figure plays, jazz orchestras made up of children's musicians, lambe lambe theater, role-playing and street performances will inhabit the squares and historic buildings, in a logic of enhancing beauty and creating a community place.

Si P'Arte! will be the role-playing game that will lead to the discovery of the secrets and history of the city. The boys and girls will be guided by the "Bird Choir" through interactive places and stages where they will gather information and stimuli. Final goal: the achievement of honorary citizenship of the Ideal City, which will metaphorically take shape within the walls of San Gimignano.

A "Snack Corner" will be set up every day at the Loggia Nuova.
