Florence is one of the favourite cities in Italy to spend New Year’s Eve, thanks to its varied offer of complimentary entertainment organized in the city center.
Two main squares will be the scenarios of the celebration of New Year’s Eve in Florence: The Piazza Pitti and Piazza della Signoria. For the first time in Florentine history, the Piazza Pitti will host the end-of-year celebrations. The traditional New Year’s Eve big concert will include the performance of Italian main artists such as Irene Grandi, the Streets Clerks and Alessandro Mannarino.

However, the historical center will offer plenty of other interesting musical events to satisfy the different interests of the crowd. First of all, there will be a gospel concert featured during the evening in Piazza Santissima Annunziata thanks to the Cleveland Gospel Singers.
On the other hand, Piazza San Lorenzo will also offer new events with the participation of the British Singer Sarah Jane Morris and Nico Gori’s Tentet Swing.
In the fabulous location of Piazza della Signoria, under the Loggia dei Lanzi- also a highlight of the celebrations of New Year’s Eve in Florence- will offer instead a classical music concert. This year the Akademic Symphony orchestra of Chernivsti Philharmonic Society, conducted by Giuseppe Lanzetta, will play Viennese waltzes. Don’t miss it!
We take this opportunity to wish you, from all of us at Il Salviatino, a lot of fun for tonight and a fantastic 2016!
