San Giovanni Firenze
Noi della Società di San Giovanni Battista abbiamo una passione che ci portiamo dentro: quella di creare lo spettacolo più bello di Firenze, con i Fochi. 🎆🔍 Per farli, ogni anno, contiamo su grandi sostenitori come la Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Firenze, che ci aiuta a farli sempre meglio. Ma possiamo crescere ancora, con il vostro sostegno! 🤲Ph. Mauro Sani ... Vedi di piùVedi meno

The society

History

The Society of St. John the Baptist was established with a “rescript” of January 29, 1796 by Grand Duke Ferdinand III of Tuscany. The young sovereign wanted to connect his figure to the most ancient Florentine tradition and the cult of the Baptist was always present in him in the most heartfelt forms.

Support us

Since 1796 it is the Society of St. John the Baptist Odv to organize for the City of Florence “Fochi” every year more spectacular and increasingly admired by all those who, on the evening of June 24, pour out on the banks of the Arno or crowd the terraces to be flooded with so much auspicious light. Do you want to support the culture and tradition of the city of Florence? You can do this by donating your 5×1000 to San Giovanni.
