On the 31st of December, the new Venetian way of celebrating New Year returns to Piazza San Marco in Venice and Piazza Ferretto in Mestre, ready to set the two hearts of the city beating on one of the most important nights of the year. Once again, the New Year celebrations will culminate in a vast, communal kiss to send a message of love, peace and brotherhood to the world. This is the simple but profound gesture, that will welcome in the New Year at an event that is destined to become the focus of media attention and a worldwide symbol of goodwill as well as a very special memory for both the city and all those who will be there to enjoy this new, unforgettable night in Venice. The music shows will be accompanied by a grand collective toast, and at midnight, the marvelous fireworks show in the basin of San Marco will light up New Year's Eve.
