Perhaps you are a poet, a novelist, a performer, a playwright, a journalist, an avid diary keeper, a scrawler of writings on walls. Whatever form your words take, we want to hear them. The only limit is ten minutes.

You don't need to present anything. You can also come along to listen, to be surprised, and to be inspired.

Bring a plate of food to share, or just bring yourself. Let's exchange ideas over wine and nibbles, and expand the community of writers (and readers!) here in Florence.

The microphone will be occupied from 8pm until 10pm.
See you there. x

This event is English language based, but all languages are welcome. If you would like to speak on the night, send me an email to reserve a slot:


Forse sei un poeta, un romanziere, un esecutore, un drammaturgo, un giornalista, un avido diarista, uno scarabocchiatore di pensieri sui muri. Qualunque sia la forma che le tue parole prendono, vogliamo sentirle! L'unico limite è di dieci minuti.

Non è obbligatorio presentare nulla. Vieni anche solo ad ascoltare, a stupirti, a scoprire, ad ispirarti.

Porta con te un piatto di cibo da condividere, o semplicemente porta solo te stesso . Scambiamoci idee tra vino e stuzzichini, ed espandiamo la comunità di scrittori (e lettori !) qui a Firenze.

Il microfono sarà acceso dalle 20:00 fino alle 22:00.
Ci vediamo là. x

Questo evento è pensato in lingua inglese, ma tutti i linguaggi sono i benvenuti. Se volete esprimervi in una serata, inviami una mail per prenotare uno spazio:


Movie night @ Tasso Hostel Florence ( Movie Starts at 9pm Sharp )

This time we're showing a documentary about music and club scene in West Berlin during the 80s. One of the most amazing times and places to be!

B-Movie: Lust and Sound in West Berlin (1979-1989)

70s changed the music industry forever when punk, a late child of Dada exploded and destroyed the boundaries between the artists and the audience.

Then came the synthesizers that liberated music even more... And as a result 80s Germany and England, and especially Berlin became a melting pot for everything that would become popular, club and rock music as we know it now.

Post-punk and new wave created all the multitude of musical genres we are still playing and mixing today.

B-movie shows unique footage from the inside of various sub and pop cultures, and let's us relive these amazing times.

Featuring: David Bowie, Nick Cave, Blixa Bargeld and other heroes...
