The concert, in front of a full house, was very successful, ending with an enthusiastic standing ovation by the audience. Jonnie Jiang was presented with the keys to the City of Florence by the Mayor Dario Nardella, who declared: “Giving the keys to the City to Jonnie Jiang, whose talent and generosity I have known and appreciated since long, is for me an honour. Through this concert we have reinforced the fruitful relationship already existing between Florence and China and we have contributed to raise funds to support the Tommasino Bacciotti Foundation, providing free accommodation for the families whose children are undergoing long-term treatments at the Meyer Paediatric Hospital. Florence has proved once more responsive to solidarity.” The Chinese community in Tuscany was considerably in attendance, donating with great generosity.
