The fusion of the festival with Cortona is one of the added values of On The Move. Its roots are firmly planted in the ancient or abandoned locations which the festival has given new life to. Visitors are fascinated by the Old Hospital, the Old Meat Storage Unit and the Medici Fortress of Girifalco, which are the principal exhibition locations of Cortona On The Move. For ten weeks a year the Festival becomes the flesh and blood of Cortona while its photographs grace the walls of alleyways and buildings in the historic town centre. And during the opening days of the festival, Cortona offers the beauty of its streets and plazas for open-air events and dinner parties.
