A huge thank you to Kelsey and Lucy for the original idea for this project, and for all their support and encouragement in those early days. And thank you to all the people in Livorno and worldwide who have positively contributed to the site over the last 15 years
The Festa dell'Uva - Grape Festival - takes place every year in September in the Livorno district of Collinaia, to celebrate the grape harvest. The Festa normally takes place over a few days, and includes market stalls, dance and sporting displays, sports events, entertainment and food and wine.
The Livorno Music Festival, organised by Vittorio Ceccanti, began in 2011. The event lasts for about two weeks from the last week in August to the first week in September. As well as offering a series of classical music concerts open to the public, the Festival also hosts masterclasses in a range of instruments and composition held each year by prominent figures in the music world.
