From Musical America Worldwide, July 17

"Fabio Luisi has resigned as music director of Florence's Maggio Musicale. His announcement today comes on the heels of a behind-the-scenes power struggle over Cristiano Chiarot's departure as the theater's intendant. Although Chiarot's contract was due to expire on July 28, last week Florence Mayor Dario Nardella announced he would reappoint Chairot for another term."
