LA ROTONDA DEL PARTERRE

ALTHOUGH THE TOWN PLANNING OFFICE IS UNLIKELY TO RE-INTRODUCE HORSE RACING IT HAS ANNOUNCED THAT....

Recently work began on the redevelopment and conservative restoration of the stone amphitheater in Cortona’s public gardens. 
“Il Parterre”,  together with the circular space at the entrance of the park, was designed in 1842 by the engineer Allegretti.
At that time it was intended as a space for theatre shows and horse racing.
Although the Cortona town planning office is unlikely to re-introduce horse racing, it has announced that at the end of the works, various outdoor initiatives will be organized, including a cinema and a stage for the performing arts.

MY CORTONA

MY CORTONA WAS DUE TO BE LAUNCHED DURING EASTER 2020. UNFORTUNATELY, FOR EVERYONE, COVID 19 MADE AN APPEARANCE.


Our blog had been intended as a central hub for Cortona lovers world-wide, bringing you useful information, profiles of the many interesting people who live & visit the town, up-dates on local news, special stories & upcoming events

With the world still reeling from the pandemic, we have chosen to suspend some features & have decided instead, - at least for now - to bring you a limited version of our blog by introducing a series called MOMENTS.

We would love you to contribute!

We also thought that in the absence of an imminent visit, you might enjoy a little Local news and a few Tips for (future) Trips
We look forward to seeing you soon!
