New Year's Eve in Ferrara - Fire in the Castle

Let's start from the beginning. We Ferrara people love our city so much that it was not enough for us to have a wonderful Castle in the center of town. To welcome the new millennium, we decided that it had to become the star of a fireworks show so beautiful and spectacular that it took our breath away!
Since that unforgettable night between December 31, 1999 and January 1, 2000, the New Year's Eve in Ferrara with the Fire of the Castello Estense has become a traditional and unmissable event to celebrate the arrival of the New Year. So unmissable that it is now a classic of the National News on New Year's Eve and has been listed, by Vanity Fair, among the best New Year's Eve outdoor parties around the world.
