Varchi di Natale

Folklore

Magic in the streets and squares of Montevarchi's historic center

The evocative event "Varchi di Natale" will make the streets and squares of Montevarchi's historic center shine with magic from December 2 to January 7, 2024.

The celebration will begin on December 2 with the countdown to the lighting of the Christmas tree in Piazza Varchi, transforming the environment with lights, decorations and ornaments made from recycled materials, inspired by the "Nutcracker" theme. These elements will help create the perfect Christmas atmosphere, flanked by numerous planned events.

Among the most eagerly awaited attractions for the little ones will be Santa's House (Via Roma, 82) and the descent of Santa and his elves from the bell tower of the Collegiate Church on December 17. Piazza dello Sferisterio will be dedicated to the jolly old man with a 6-meter-tall Santa Claus and themed inflatable characters.

Music will accompany the festive mood with events, such as student choirs from Montevarchi's Comprehensive Institutes, a Gospel concert at the Auditorium, traveling choirs from the San Lorenzo Polyphonic and a performance by the Corpo Musicale "G. Puccini" on Christmas Eve.

The year 2023 will end with a big New Year's Eve party in Piazza Varchi, while January 6 will be dedicated to the little ones with film screenings at Spazio Politeama and the arrival of the Befane on Vespas.
