In October 2015 the annual international workshop on industrial heritage, Re-Fact, turned its attention to the disused "Silos Granari", or grain silo, that has stood in the Port of Livorno since the 1920s and which is protected by the Italian Sovrintendenza ai beni culturali (Monuments and Fine Arts Office).
The Vertigo Theatre of Livorno is holding a full day of events dedicated to William Shakespeare on 21st May 2016.

As part of the festival of sacred music, Sanctae Juliae, Laudate Dominum is a programme of 17th-century music from Italian convents and churches, featuring well-known composers such as Claudio Monteverdi, Francesco Cavalli and Girolamo Frescobaldi, but also a number of pieces written by the Suore Compositrici, a group of nuns who succeeded in publishing the music they wrote at a time when this was a difficult feat even for men.
