23 November 2007. Once again this year the 'portable' ice rink returns to Livorno in Piazza della Repubblica, opening on 24 November and staying put until the beginning of February 2008. The rink measures 600 square metres and will have seating for 250 spectators.
Also in Piazza della Repubblica, from the 8th December to Christmas Eve, Livorno will be hosting a Christmas market, this year featuring 40 decorated stalls selling crafts made by artisans and young artists from the Livorno area. Completing the festive picture will be a huge Christmas "tree" made from the 20 metre pole used during Livorno's Palio dell'Antenna boat race.
