EVENTS - February in Brescia

I MACCHIAIOLI 20/01 - 09/06

Palazzo Martinengo welcomes an exhibition dedicated to the Macchiaioli, the group that gave rise to one of the most original European artistic avant-gardes of the 19th century.
It’s possible to admire over 100 masterpieces by artists like Fattori, Lega, Signorini, Cabianca, Borrani, Abbati and others - usually inaccessible since they come largely from private collections.

Opening hours:
Wednesday to Friday 9:00 - 17:00
Saturday, Sunday, and holidays 10:00 - 20:00



The 15th of February, since immemorial time, we celebrate the patron saints of the city of Brescia. The fair is mainly developed along Via San Faustino, and then until the heart of the city.
Every year the city is filled with stalls of all kinds: from gastronomy to handicrafts, from toys to clothing...



«Here's to the fools who dream» because you’ll feel like you’re in La La Land.
ONLY THAT Ryan Gosling is replaced by the Luca Marenzio Conservatory’s most talented students, who will entertain you with their Blue Notes while you sip your drink - directly in the Teatro Grande Foyer.

Time Slot:
18:00 - 21:00


MEGLIO BIO, FARMERS' MARKET 03/02 - 10/02 - 17/02 - 24/02

Every Saturday, for the past 6 years, Cascina Maggia hosts a biological farmers' market. From 8 to 12:30 it is possible to buy fruit and vegetable, bread, eggs, cheese, wine, oil, jams, and marmalades.
A little thing to help sustainable agriculture and to respect the planet's biodiversity at the same time.


ORIENT FESTIVAL 17/02 - 18/02 - 24/02 - 25/02

During the last two weekends of February, inside the Brixia Forum, will takes place the Orient Festival.
