One of the most popular street art festivals in Italy
Every year (for 32 years now!) Certaldo, a little town in the hills not far from Florence, hosts one of the most popular street art festivals of Italy: Mercantia-International Fourth Theatre Festival. Within the walls of the town, in the historic centre of one of the most picturesque locations in the Florentine province, thousands of curious visitors mixing with the street artists flow through the narrow streets like a flooding river, with performances, stalls and artisan stands. In last year’s programme, there were almost 100 events and performances and 400 different artists who exhibited their works every evening: theatre, bands, parades, dance, visual arts and more besides.
