New Year’s Day in Ferrara is one of the most peculiar events in Europe: a big party will take place in the city centre, reaching its climax with the great fireworks show at the Estense Castle. During the show, fire cascades and glowing fountains will light up the night in a very colourful and festive atmosphere, recalling the old times and the myths of the past, along with the charming sound of popular songs and soundtracks. This event is a tradition in town: in fact, it has been organized since many years, and it is loved by adults and children, young people and families, who enjoy this friendly and bright feast, until the late night.
