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.
