Among the various Christmas initiatives of this 2023 there is also the Florence Ice Village in Piazza Vittorio Veneto alle Cascine with a panoramic wheel of 55 meters high, 1350 m.q. ice skating rink and Christmas market. A novelty for the Florentines, who in recent years have been used to seeing the attraction at the fortress. In the square Abraham Lincoln sell the last preparations in view of the inauguration, which will take place on the day of the Immaculate Conception, on 8 December. The wheel, together with the skating rink and the village of Santa Claus will remain until 15 January 2024. Subsequently only the wheel will remain until 10 June 2024. Other initiatives will follow one another. The installation of a traveling entertainment attraction for 6 months at the farmhouses is an experimentation to evaluate its impact in a delicate area of the city, often the protagonist of episodes of drug dealing.
