16th Firenze Tango Festival

“A Masterpiece of Festival in Florence”

Since 2002 the Tango Club Firenze directed by Patricia Hilliges & Matteo Panero has been organizing this extraordinary Tango Event in Florence. For the last fifteen years passionate Tangueros from all over the world love the pleasant atmosphere and the international flair of this Festival: Exciting tango-nights in amazing Festival locations. Last year we changed the style and mood of our Festival: the main venue is at Teatro Affratellamento which is a cosy milonga in an old theatre near to the river and to the city center. The wooden floor, the smaller size of the location and limited number of participants turned this event into an exclusive festival though it maintained its international character. The gala night is at “Circolo Grassina” with a bigger dancing floor and where the tango fashion shops will expose. It’s situated in a small town in the Tuscan hills 15 minutes from Florence. The high quality standards of the organization, the invited experienced teachers and dancers so as of the tango orchestras and tango shows and many other things that make an outstanding Tango Festival, will make you live a weekend full of emotions during wonderful spring days in Florence.

The lessons are hold in the wooden floored Teatro Affratellamento and have a limited number of participants. A really great international festival is awaiting you, don’t miss it!
