In the first ten days, in Livorno will start the new edition of the festival Effetto Venezia, ten days of music, performances, entertainments in the Venezia quarter.
The charming Venezia quarter is filled with canals, islands and bridges, many from the 17th century, which was designed in the same century to house the mercantile class. Shows, theatrical performances and concerts give life to the historical district.
This great event characterised by voices, lights, sounds and colours of Mediterranean inspiration takes place in narrow streets, courtyards, historical buildings and along small bridges, all making up the oldest but still beating heart of the town. Just like Venice, the famous Italian town situated on a lagoon, the Venice district is criss-crossed by canals. During Effetto Venezia stalls and artisan exhibitions are crammed alongside the elegant antique shops of its main streets. Visitors can go on characteristic tours by boat along the canals and enjoy an atmospheric view of Livorno.
