Firenze Vivibile is a project that deals with urban night-life, redesigning the management policies of the squares in the historical centre. In the Santo Spirito and Santa Croce areas, there are stewards and operators, working in collaboration with a team from Mediazione Artistica, who intervene as mediators between the business managers, the inhabitants and users of the squares, through performance street activities.
The aim is to attract the user’s attention and to facilitate the spreading and comprehension of messages that advocate respectful, proactive behaviour in relation to conscious alcohol consumption, silence, the environment, violence and safety. Among the experimental animation activities carried out during the summer, the Silent Disco is a big hit; a silent form of entertainment in an effort to redesign the square, promoting values such as: education, awareness, volume control, harm reduction etc.
