Celebrate Xmas and help charity with Florence’s Natale per FILE market

From December 18-20, the annual Natale per FILE makes a return to Florence, and is a great opportunity to pick up some great and thoughtful gifts as well as giving to charity.

All of the market’s participants, from established brands to individual artisans, will be donating a percentage of their earnings from the market to FILE, the Fondazione Italiana di Leniterapia, an organisation which provides palliative care in hospices and private homes in Florence.

Hosted in the beautiful Palazzo Corsini on Lungarno Corsini, this will be the 13th edition of the annual market, and is open from 10am to 8pm each day, with free admission.

Along with the numerous stalls selling popular gifts as well as unique and handmade items, there will also be a raffle held on the Sunday giving away prestigious prizes, as well as plenty of pandoro and panettone wrapped in blue ribbon, the traditional symbols of the charity’s Christmas fundraising efforts.

Florence and the surrounding region of Tuscany is an excellent place to enjoy the festive period, with several traditional events to get involved with, foods to try and festive sights to see. Visit our website to find out more about our Tuscany hotels, apartments and villas.
