In Piazza Beccaria, Astra 2 cinema is being transformed. The traditional cinema will be more than just a movie theater. The plan is to make the venue suitable for live music, poetry readings and other culture events. Some other features that will be added are a gallery, an 80-seat restaurant and a lobby bar. There will be a multi-purpose screening room and also dressing rooms for performances that will take place. From the lobby, you can take an elevator or stairs to the top floor to view the new gallery, which will serve for live shows. So many changes keep happening to Florence, it really is incredible.
