The entire event was sublime. Recommending this to all I know heading to Firenze, and hoping to return ourselves. Thank you to the performers on the program, and the facilitators that made this possible.
Could not have been better. Intimate venue, great energy from the performers and an appreciative audience. Standing ovation. Don’t hesitate to see this.
Was fantastic. I love it. Such a talent
