How to spend New Year’s Eve 2020 in the center of Catania in the square and through the streets of the historic center
One of the most interesting ways to celebrate New Year’s Eve is to “throw yourself into the fray” of the squares and celebrate with all the other people.
This world is one of the most felt in Catania, above all thanks to the fact that the New Year in Catania in the square takes place in the magnificent setting of the historic center of Catania, between Piazza del Teatro Massimo and New Year’s Eve Catania university square.
From 22:00, in fact, the celebrations and the concert begin that will accompany all bystanders at midnight, when the fireworks will burst into the sky, marking the entrance into the new year.
Among the groups that played in the past in the New Year Catania in the center, we also saw the Gemelli Diversi. The end of year concert is also highly anticipated Sicilian musical groups, who are ready to make themselves known to the people of their land.
Among the latter, in the past years, we have seen the group “Babil on suite” perform, which are characterized by their retro sounds, the “Giufà” with their beautiful folk and the “Clauda”, a group with modern sounds but anchored to the most typical tradition of the land of Sicily.
The New Year’s Eve Catania brings together young and old, families, groups of friends, all with the same desire to have fun and welcome the arrival of the new year in the best possible way.
The last night of the year allows you to attend live concerts, taste itineraries focused on the gastronomy of Catania and Sicily in general and, much appreciated, and the giant table that is installed in Piazza Università and around which thousands gather of citizens to be together during the night of December 31st and welcome the new year.
Also in this square, there will also be video projections that will give, to the facades of the buildings that overlook it, a touch of color and joy.
