From 20 November 2021 to 6 January 2022, Pisa will host a rich calendar of events organised by Confesercenti Toscana Nord, which won the tender published by the Municipality of Pisa for the management and programming during the Christmas period, including an ice rink, markets, educational tours and guided excursions.
The lighting and installation of Christmas trees will be paid for by the Municipality.
The proposals are as follows:
Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II: where there will be the traditional covered ice rink, a LED screen for projecting images from inside the market and a Christmas market;
Piazza del Carmine: small wooden houses for the sale of Christmas decorations;
Logge di Banchi: traditional stalls, themed panels created by the Russoli Institute and Santa's little house where children can post their letters and take a souvenir photo;
Piazza Garibaldi: for all the weekends of the period (except for the period between 18 and 24 December), a craft market of ingenuity;
Largo Ciro Menotti: space dedicated to chocolate and Christmas sweets;
Piazza della Pera: exhibition and sale of typical food products from the Italian regions, with particular emphasis on Tuscan products;
Piazza Martiri della Libertà: on Sunday 19 December, a re-use market, thanks to the 'Occhio del Riciclone' association;
Giardino via la Nunziatina: on 10-11-12 and 17-18-19 December, an open space for selected producers to present their craft beer products to the public.
Educational trails and guided tours: organised tours with the little train departing from the city centre to visit both the Park and the city, and educational walking trails within the city.
