Piazza del Popolo preferred as a location at Circus Maximus. All seated and well spaced, with access only to the vaccinated. Artists of international standing for the count-down and to toast the new year. The Capitol is speeding up to organize the concert of New Year’s. The first step was to arrange the opening of the subway for that day until 2.30am. The will is clear, even if first – which is no small feat – it will be necessary to deal with the increase in infections. Mayor Roberto Gualtieri himself explained it the day before yesterday, meeting the representatives of companies and traders: «We are studying a series of events for the holidays, first of all a concert for New Year’s Eve. But we have to understand if the pandemic will allow it ».

Rome, New Year’s concert: the Maneskin (already hired in New York) are giving up

Yesterday between Rome and Lazio there were 317 new positive cases less than the previous day. In total there are 1,493. But by the end of December the Region should return to the yellow zone. Even in this condition, the latest provisions of the government allow concerts, which can only be attended by patrons in possession of Super Green pass, therefore vaccinated. The Capitol is moving within this perimeter – and in close collaboration with the Prefecture and the Lazio Health Department. Alessandro Onorato, councilor for major events and tourism who is taking care of the dossier, explains: «We took office only a few days ago and to organize a similar event you need time and planning. The idea of ​​the council is to make it clear that Rome must go back to being the most important square for major events. But we must do this by ensuring security and strict compliance with anti-covid regulations. Nothing is defined yet, but if the competent authorities allow it, the concert will return on New Year’s Eve ».

It was the pandemic that prevented the Raggi junta from organizing the event last year. Gualtieri and the commissioner Onorato, on the other hand, look to a high-level evening, but in complete safety. As mentioned, the will to keep it in Piazza del Popolo and no longer at the Circus Maximus as in previous years is strengthened, also because this area guarantees more access routes. Only seated seats and access will be allowed to those with the Super Green pass. The Prefecture will then decide how many will be able to attend the concert. For the show, leading artists are being contacted, also because they would like to broadcast the event on television, hoping to hold the count-down moment and the greeting to the new year in Piazza del Popolo. The Municipality is also studying other public events during the holidays. This year there will not be the classic Christmas market in Piazza Navona, but here the Campidoglio would like to hold a show with singers and dancers, where however it will be forbidden to sell food or trinkets as they did in front of the fountain of the Four Rivers in previous years.
