Let’s start defining programs to spend an affordable the New Year in the main Italian cities. In Bologna, the evening in Piazza Maggiore for New Year’s Eve is called from above, as the guest of the evening, the musician Serge Pizzorno of Kasabian will be performing from the balcony of Palazzo Re Enzo. An evening of music and fun that will start at 22:30 with the music of DJ Len, that around midnight will be replaced by the guitarist and songwriter of Kasabian.
At midnight, the music will give way to tradition with the lighting of the bonfire of the last year, designed this year by PetriPaselli, the artistic duo formed by Luciano Paselli and Matthew Thomas Petri. The Vecchione artist will be set up in Piazza Maggiore in late December and will be live for a few days before the fire that will burn it to symbolically close the past year.
During the holidays and also on the 1st of January, Bologna offers a series of exhibitions and museums to visit.
