The Venetian Effect s an event that for almost 40 years now has been synonymous with the summer in Livorno and involves the Venice neighborhood, famous for its historic bridges and navigable Medici canals, an ideal stage for music shows, theatre, installations, street animation, light shows, and markets.
The program of the initiative offers something more with each new edition: musical and theatrical events, food and wine culture, exhibitions, sports events, and workshops for children. Over the years, many artists have taken turns on the stages of Effetto Venezia, including Carmen, Federica Carta, Bobo Rondelli, Snaporaz, Sinfonico Honolulu, and BFolks.
Effetto Venezia is also the right occasion to taste the typical dishes of the area: the cacciucco (strictly with 5 c's), first courses made with fresh fish, chickpea cake, and, to finish, a ponce alla livornese.
The 38th edition of the Venetian Effect will take place from August 2 to 6, 2023 and will be dedicated to cinema, told with different languages, in squares and streets, with national and international guests: street theatre, music, theatre, exhibitions, good food, and then workshops and masterclasses on the crafts of cinema.
