History of the event
The New Year “Love” was a truly incredible success since it was launched in 2008 and since then it has been seen as a way to celebrate the strongest feeling in the world, but it certainly is not just participate in a kiss record here that attracts thousands of tourists and that makes Venice (along with Naples), the city in Italy that is more inclined to celebrate their anniversaries in the square. In fact, if midnight will be marked by the passion of the group kiss, the “before” and “after” kiss promises are not to be outdone.
The events related to the celebrations are so many, starting from the Bacino di San Marco where there will be a futuristic spectacle of fireworks that light up the New Year’s Eve that, thanks to the mirror of the lagoon and some special effects, will multiply to give great suggestions. During the evening there will be anywhere performances of street artists, projections on buildings, Christmas lights and to follow, of course, lots of music live (to know the artists we refer to our study on New Year’s Eve concert in the square, constantly updated).
In truth every channel, every square, every corner of the most hidden secrets of the city, will host an event, whether spontaneous or organized in collaboration with the City or the Province, involving tradition, culture, entertainment and glamour of course, as the city of Dogi imposes. There are also alternative proposals, such as midnight on a boat, watching the show directly from the sea: for this opportunity, please contact directly to one of the many small travel agencies Venice.
For the square of Mestre, here too is expected to go wild with music, along with entertainment and DJ recall.
Getting around the schedules of Love 2014, the advice is to arrive in the square chosen quite on time, for the past editions of the event have become a symbol for the media own very large number of participants involved.
Last year, for example, when the theme of Love in 2013 was “White Venice” with carnival inspiration, saw the approaching (26 January) the start of the other big event that introduced the lagoon city in the world , the persons present at midnight in Piazza San Marco have been about 70,000. The main problem will still be the approach to the city: if you arrive in the late afternoon of 31, parking will be a very difficult undertaking!
Still top secret the theme of the event this year, but according to rumours it will probably still “White Venice” and it will still be communicated shortly to allow those who decide to exchange at midnight this sign of universal peace to choose accurately the dress-code of this peculiar Venetian night, undoubtedly the longest in the piazzas.
