Guide to the events of Magical Night

Here is a quick look at the bubbly events on the calendar of the New Year's parties , ready to enliven the many squares and historic downtowns of the region.  An invitation to participate and share in the joy with friends and loved ones at the many happenings sending off 2013 in the best way possible.


MarcoMengonismall.jpgStarting from the coast, undoubtedly the most anticipated event is in Rimini, the longest New Year's party in the world which will have at its heart piazza Fellini, just a few steps away from the sea and the Grand Hotel, with the concert of Marco Mengoni.  Besides this, there will be more than 150 events which, for the whole month of December up to January 6, will unite the two souls of the city, the sea and historic downtown, with artists such as Imany and Massimo Ranieri, the stars of Italian hip hop such as Fedez, Two Fingerz and Gué Pequeno, Dj sets and marching bands.  On the night of "Widespread New Year's" an ideal "Street New Year's Eve" will hit Marina Centro in the heart of the city, invading it with music notes in theaters, squares, streets, neighborhoods and monuments.  There is also a lot of entertainment and deals for young people, thanks to the Rimini Movida Pass, as well as many cultural events, including traditional ones, for adults and families.

In Milano Marittima the celebrations will begin on December 28 with Fahion Night, a special evening of fashion, music, events and sales for shopping in the best boutiques.  At midnight visitors must meet up at the Rotonda 1° Maggio to see the great show of fire, water and lights.


Capodannocerviasmall.jpgThe true New Year's celebration in Cervia and Milano Marittima will be held at the Magazzini del Sale (Salt Warehouses) and will start with a New Year's Eve dinner in the company of Franco Boni – Videojay. The biggest collector in Europe of music videos will mix his repertoire on a big screen.  Following that, an exciting pyrotechnic show with music and special effects, which will culminate in the "burning" of the Magazzino del Sale Darsena (the Salt Warehouse Dock). In Piazza Garibaldi the toast will be done to the rhythm of hip hop music with Dj sets, free-styling, entertainment with the groups Bounce and Back to basic and the break dance show with Lasagna Style.


But also the cities of art have some surprises.


This year the Bologna New Year's festivities "DALLALTO" will star Peter Hook, the legendary bassist of New Order and of Joy Division who will be in Piazza Maggiore to celebrate from the balcony of Palazzo del Podestà with an excellent Dj set while the images of the video installation curated by Loop will mix music with visual arts, in an unknown and magical landscape. Along with the music there will also be the traditional burning of the artistic "Vecchione". Representing the past year will be an enormous watering can with holes symbolizing waste, which at midnight will be lit on fire, in hopes that the future will be waste free.

The sounds of rock and of electronic music with four Ravenna DJs will be a part of the end of year event at the Arteficerie Almagià.  But the party atmosphere begins on December 28 with the Musical Fountains and the extraordinary opening of the National Museum, and continues until January 1 with a program of guided tours called Celebrating Mosaics.

capodannoferrarasmall.jpgVery welcoming is, as every year, New Year's Eve in Ferrara with the participation of many artists in the square.  Here warming people up will be the spectacular burning of the Castle, when at midnight, lights, colors, and fireworks will light up the castle along with exciting musical accompaniment.  And for those who, while waiting for the big moment, would like to go to a gala dinner, they can choose among the Banquet of the Dukes d’Este, inside the guest rooms of the Castle in which guests are invited to celebrate the end of the year surrounded by the magical renaissance atmosphere, and the New Year's Gala in the Sale del Ridotto of the Teatro Comunale of Ferrara, dedicated to elegance and music.


capodannocastellorivaltasmall.jpgFor those who want to give themselves an elegant evening here are the Castles of the Duchy of Parma and Piacenza offering memorable moments among elegant dinners, celebrations with dancing, fireworks and candlelight tours of the manors.  The choice is among the Residenza d’Epoca Torre del Borgo (PC), the Residenza Torre San Martino (PC), the Mysterious New Year's at Castell’Arquato and Gropparello (PC), the Dimora Storica 12 Monaci in Fontevivo (PR), the Castello di Scipione dei Marchesi Pallavicino (PR), the 14th century tower of the Castello di Scipione dei Marchesi Pallavicino (PR), the Castello di Compiano sull’Appennino Parmense (PR), and the parties organized in the town and castle of Rivalta (PC), one of the most beautiful towns of Italy.
