Comune di Firenze | Notte Bianca in collaborazione con il Maggio Musicale Fiorentino
Organised by Radio Papesse, Radio on Wheels is a parade-choreography for radios and bicycles, which crossed the streets of Florence during the White Night 2011. Every cyclist have been invited to bring his/her own radio and to tune in to Rai Radio 3 airing the live concert at the Maggio Fiorentino Theatre, Beethoven and Liszt interpreted by Daniel Baremboim (piano) Zubin Mehta (director) and the Maggio Fiorentino Orchestra.
For a night bicycles became theatre seats and the ensemble of radios became an orchestra; the event turned Florence into a moving open-air theatre. Radio on Wheels is a project involving and inspiring the local community and promoting the energy of culture and the green power of bicycles. The event can be replicated in other cities.
