THE RED NIGHT
This year's edition was cancelled.
WE WILL BE BACK ON SEPTEMBER 11th, 2021
Let the after-dusk atmosphere seduce you
This one night, the city takes on a different character. Get ready for the magic…
On the second Saturday in September, Volterra becomes red, the colour of our sunsets and the main tone in Rosso Fiorentino’s famous painting, the Deposition from the Cross by Rosso Fiorentino, also called the “Volterra Deposition”.
Everyone in Volterra loves and waits for this night, which makes it even more interesting for tourists and visitors.
Every 30 minutes, musical performances, readings and short theater adaptations are executed in different locations spread out in the whole city center. This way, you’ll be able to discover or re-discover Volterra by moving from one place to another.
This event happens thanks to the contribution of many citizens that put their homes, gardens and skills at the city’s disposal.
