Effetto Venezia 2016

'Livorno land of rights' the theme of the 30th edition of effetto Venezia

From 27 July 2016 to 31 July 2016


Everything is now ready for one of the most anticipated festivals in Livorno in 2016. The characteristic La Nuova Venezia district is welcoming the 30th edition of effetto venezia from 27 through to 31 July, hosting performances, concerts, exhibitions and interesting cultural initiatives. As usual, there will be stalls of crafts, gifts and antiques as well as tempting food stalls and various dining options. In addition, for the occasion, restaurants in the area will set up their tables outside giving guests the opportunity to dine outdoors and enjoy a vibrant and well-lit romantic Livorno to party...

For the past 30 years, this great event accompanies the summer of the inhabitants of Livorno: a joyful festival for young and old where local artists perform and where, over the years, important international shows like the 2015 edition Luminarium were held.

While Effetto Venezia festival 2016 aims to increase the passion of the locals for their city and their culture, on the other hand it offers an opportunity of integration with the outside world and, consequently, towards tourism.
The theme of this edition will be 'Livorno, land of rights', a title that refers to the cosmopolitan and multi-ethnic roots of this city, the cornerstones on which to build the present and the future. Hospitality, openness and generosity: it is precisely along these three themes that the event will contribute to this new idea of city.
