Piazza Pitti and the Oltrarno, near Residenza d’Epoca Torre de’ Lari, will be the location of the main event of this December 31, 2015.

Florence is one of the favorite cities in Italy to spend the New Year’s Eve, thanks also to its good proposal of free entertainment organized in the main squares.
Anyone who chooses to spend New Year’s Eve in the capital city of Tuscany will have several options to choose from. There are many options for the younger crowd, a few for the older set and very few for those with kids, but alas, we are getting used to having limited options in general.

The traditional New Year’s big concert in Florence will accompany Florentines and tourists in the new year with the music of the italian artists Irene Grandi, the Street Clerks and Alessandro Mannarino. The night will end with the Deejays of Radio DJ.

The historical center will still however have plenty of other interesting musical events to satisfy various crowds (and all are free).

The gospel will be featured, as for the past several years, the evening in Piazza Santissima Annunziata thanks to The Cleveland Gospel Singer.

In Piazza San Lorenzo – another novelty of this year – there will be Sarah Jane Morris and and the Tentet Swing Nico Gori presented by Radio Toscana.

Piazza della Signoria offers instead a classical music concert. In the Loggia dei Lanzi the Akademic Chernivtsi Philharmonic Society Symphony Orchestra conducted by Giuseppe Lanzetta will play Viennese waltzes.
