Historical Archive

The Theater of the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino was born in May 1862 as the Florentine Politeama "Vittorio Emanuele". On 9 December 1928 the Florentine Orchestral Stable, founded in June of the same year, by Maestro Vittorio Gui, performed by offering the first concert to the citizens.

The Teatro del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino Foundation has legal personality under private law that derives from the transformation of the pre-existing "Teatro comunale di Firenze" Opera House (already governed by the law of August 14, 1967, n ° 800, and endowed with legal personality under public law), of which the Foundation retains the rights, prerogatives, attributions and legal situations recognized by law or of which, in any case, the former was the owner. The transformation into a Foundation with legal personality under private law took place under the decree of 23 April 1998, n ° 134, which governs the Foundation itself together with the previous legislative decree of 29 June 1996, n ° 367.

The Foundation pursues, on a non-profit basis and therefore with a prohibition on the distribution of profits or other assets, the dissemination and development of the art of music and the knowledge of music, opera and dance, the professional training of artistic cadres and technicians and the musical education of the community through the direct management of its own theater, called “Teatro del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino”.

Specifically, the Foundation ensures, among other things, the programming, organization and realization in Italy and abroad of opera performances, musical and opera theater performances, concert, opera and ballet activities and in particular the realization of the prestigious annual festival called "Maggio Musicale Fiorentino" founded in 1933 on the initiative of the patron, Federal of Florence, Luigi Ridolfi Vay da Verrazzano and the maestro Vittorio Gui.
