The five ecosystems will coexist and contaminate each other in the vast area available to the party, between Piazza dell"Emporio, Ponte Fabricio, Giardino degli Aranci and Piazza Bocca delle Verità: from the world of ice and fresh water to the colorful world of pastures and grasslands, from deserts to the world of jungles and forests to the world of the sea. Each environment will be animated by artistic performances, visionary scenarios and themed installations, which important international artists.
The Festival will open Ascanio Celestini , the evening on December 31st at 9pm, at the Circus Maximus, recounting an unpublished fable written by him specifically on the theme of the Earth. With him on stage the Rustica X Band directed by Pasquale Iannarella, and other international artists that will be unveiled in the coming weeks.
After the countdown for midnight and the fireworks show will start the Dj Set of Skin Skinny , leader of the Skunk Anansie and pop rock icon that - from the center of the Circus Maximus, as in an ideal center of the Earth - will propose until 3 am an explosive mix of tech / house and electro sounds.
