Mick and Keith reportedly with "all entourage" in Florence for 10 days, a "new music project". Spotted in a restaurant by the river. I will translate the piece later.

the article mentions new tracks been recorded and Paul McCartney reported appearance.



Rolling Stones in Florence: Jagger and Richards at dinner in San Frediano
According to rumors, the two stars had been in Florence for about ten days with their entire entourage

Florence, Dec. 2, 2023 - The wonders of Florence and its hills continue to seduce visitors from all over the world, including some well-known and famous faces known to all, young and old alike.

On the 2024 "Grand Tour" that includes sixteen live dates, more than sixty years after their first landing in the United States, a must-see stop is the Florentine Oltrarno, especially after, in 2017, San Frediano was chosen as the "coolest" neighborhood in the world by the Lonely Planet guidebook.

The "rive gauche" is teeming with fashionable clubs, frequented, every day and every night, by people of all ages, settled among in the historic center that merges with luxury. You may happen to meet in any restaurant in the area, sitting nonchalantly , at the table next to yours two rock icons like Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, the Rolling Stones.

It happened a few nights ago at Il Cestello Restaurant, in the little square of the same name overlooking the riverfront.

The band was apparently having dinner there. According to rumors, the two stars had been in Florence for the past ten days or so with their entire entourage made up of sound engineers, producers, service personnel and security, busy working on some songs for a new musical project. The musicians were barricaded, locked away from prying eyes in Daniele Cavalli's Heavy Soul Darling recording and production studio (in Villa Cavalli). It seems that Paul Mc Cartney also made a brief appearance.

However, they are scheduled to leave today. Their musical tour will begin shortly. This is not the first time the Rolling Stones have passed through these parts. Even in 2017, on the occasion of a concert in Lucca, the band had decided to stay in the historic center of Florence.

Especially the frontman in Florence "is at home" and has been thinking about moving to Tuscany with his family for years, the perfect buen retiro setting for a few months a year, also to work on writing new songs. After all, it was precisely with Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts that Jagger recorded the hit "Living in a ghost Town" a few years ago.

The leader of the Rolling Stones is not the first entertainment personality to give in to the lure of the Florentine oltrarno. Let's not forget that at the turn of 1999-2000 the well-known Irish actor Daniel Day Lewis also spent 10 months as a cobbler, for free, in the workshop of Stefano Bemer, the shoemaker known the world over for his wonderful custom-made shoes, which see a cost considered luxury: for a pair of shoes they start at 500 euros.

Rolling Stones "alla fiorentina": Mick Jagger and Keith Richards at dinner in San Frediano

Put one night at dinner in San Frediano, you turn among the tables and find two kings of music, two artists who have always been in the Olympus of rock. Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, who would need no introduction either, were in Florence these days. Or rather, they would have been in Florence, for now the conditional is a must. The two members of the Rolling Stones, two icons of world music, reportedly spent a few days in the city and even dined at Ristorante Il Cestello, in the little square of the same name in the San Frediano district."

The rest behind a paywall, if/as I have the complete text I'll post

On the 2017 tour they played Lucca, close to Florence and closer to Pisa.

I was staying in Florence the couple days before the show, and met Charlie walking through the streets

I can't follow it for a while. Is this an old article with preparation for Hackney Diamonds. Or is it for an upcoming new album?

That explains the recent video of Mick in the studio [www.instagram.com]

Yes, I thought the same. This is the studio (lot of analog equipment). Mick is listed under the "Family" tab. Tried to find photos that match with the Mick's video but could not find. Yet the style (wooden ceiling) looks like it might be a room somewhere in there

Interesting! Wonder what is the purpose of these recordings - a whole new album or some sort of deluxe edition of HACKNEY DIAMONDS with bonus material? Or something else?

But be the purpose whatever, most of all it is wonderful that they keep on working in the studio. Mick and Keith seem to go along very well these days, being very commited to the Stones.

According to rumors, the two stars had been in Florence for about ten days with their entire entourage made up of sound technicians, producers, service and security personnel, involved in the creation of some songs for a new musical project. The musicians were barricaded, closed, away from prying eyes in Daniele Cavalli’s Heavy Soul Darling recording and production studio (in Villa Cavalli).

Only a shot stolen from the Il Cestello restaurant is irrefutable proof of his presence in the city . Keith Richards was also with him, but he would only stay for a few days

In this article, the appearance of McCartney is a dismissed rumour

Mick has been in Florence for a week( many report from friends). Keith appears to have already left ( nothing report from friends)
There is no news of Matt Clifford, always with Mick in previous stays in Tuscany and Sicily.

Isn't getting ready for the tour five months before the first show a bit early?

Maybe they enjoyed working last December and January and wanted to see if they could keep it going. At least, that's what I hope is happening.

Jagger has said 3/4 of the next album has been done and that was months ago so I am sure they are evaluating those tracks and wrapping it up for release next Fall. It won’t come out before the tour

That was quiet obvious that they are there in Florence (at least Mick) as Lukas showed off the stories with beautiful Florence scenery on his Instagram.
