the 25° Edition of “Città dei Balocchi” (The Land of Toys) is approaching ! the Worldwide now known X-Mas event, organized by Consorzio Como Turistica, places increasingly Como as one of the best location to visit during the X-Mas holidays.
Once again the city will be lighted by the Como Magic Light Festival, promoted by “Amici di Como” and Fondazione Cariplo. Thanks to the use of architectural projections the most important locations (squares, monuments, buildings)will be valorized , recreating X-Mas images that will dress the city with a fiary-tale atmosphere. This year Como will be the first placeto let the monument speak with special effects of sound animation.
Among the many activities the typical X-Mas Market, the Cribs Exhibition, the ice skating ring, the Santa Claus train, the giant X-Mas tree and much more…
FInally, to enrich the event, the 3° Edition of “Noir in Festival”, the very important film and literature festival featuring the Raymond Chandler award, in the prestigious frame of the Sociale Theatre from 6th to 9th December, and the absolute novelty: the “Lago di Natale” (X-Mas Lake) : different location (Churches, Monuments) on both the lake banks will be lighted with architectural projections recreating an atmosphere of water and lights. During the weekends evening cruises will be available using the historycal “Concordia” steamboat.
