New year seen from across the globe

New Year’s Eve has come and incredibly another year has elapsed.
2016 brought many changes in our personal lives, at work with the new plane I’ll have to fly, new projects and novelties like the opening of I Live Italian. On the subject I’d like to thank personally all our friends and the occasional visitors who made this idea to come to life and live in these lasts 5 months.

2017 is at the door here in the United States, already stepped in for some countries, and we couldn’t miss the chance to say few words today, the last words of 2016!

I’ve noticed that TV channels, on the footprint of last year and the year before, are broadcasting images from Tokyo and Sydney stepping through Rome, Paris, Munich and London until in few hours the main attraction will be the New York Ball Drop crowned with few others cities celebration until our Los Angeles.

I’d like to bring to you, instead, the beauty of an Italian city during holiday time witnessed by my brother Andrea and his girlfriend Melania just few hours ago (we miss you from this side of the world and we can’t wait to spend more time with you!) 

For the occasion they decided to go for the midnight New Year’s Eve celebration on the lake in Como, a relatively small city overlooking the homonym lake and surrounded by a crown of mountains creating an unrivaled “green walls” valley effect.


I’ve been there many times and in different occasion but I’ve never had the chance to see anything like what the city setup this year.
I don’t think that my boring words can explain what the pictures here below will pass through.
Starting from the Duomo (cathedral of Como) completely outlined with lights and projected sacred images

  

To the decorations every building in downtown on the lakefront was showing to the pedestrians with a complete light up shape and with images projected creating an amazing effects.

Last but not least the astonishing fireworks show on the lake which, I’d say, never gets old!

I hope all the above has left positive emotions and a desire, maybe one of the incoming years, to escape the well known usual places and to visit one of hundreds cities like this one of Italy, my homeland, rich with little pearls ready there to be discovered.
With these pictures I Live Italian want to wish you all HAPPY NEW YEAR!
We will see you next year … the 2017!
