"The Night of Toys"

New Year's Eve in San Marino will be an incredible journey


San Marino, 28 December 2022 – After Christmas, the magic of the holidays continues to enliven San Marino’s Old Town, with "The Christmas of Wonders - An Incredible Journey" awaiting the arrival of the new year with "The Night of Toys”!

The world of toys will in fact be the protagonist of New Year's Eve in San Marino which on 31 December will enliven Piazzale Lo Stradone with the "Night of Toys" party: the Band led by Little Muffin will welcome the public with waders, the Grinch and toys starting at 22.00, to spend the last night of the year in joy with the whole family.

The unmissable dj set by Mr. Lori G will open the dances and inflame the stage of the Old Town of the Republic of San Marino, who, together with the breathtaking performances of the "SHOWZER" artists, will greet 2022 to lead us to the rhythm of music into year 2023: an incredible journey full of music and fun!

And of course, at the stroke of midnight, the toast accompanied by a sweet slice of pandoro or panettone cannot be missing.

On the first day of the year, after two years of break, the traditional New Year's concert by the Military Band of San Marino conducted by Maestro Stefano Gatta will be back at 17.00 at the Teatro Titano: a musical tribute to the soundtracks of the films of the Italian cinema with music by authors such as Ennio Morricone, Nicola Piovani, Nino Rota, Alessandro Cicognini.

The Christmas of Wonders continues until 8 January with incredible attractions and shows that will enliven the squares and the streets of the Old Town of the Republic of San Marino. Complete program of the event on: www.visitsanmarino.com
