Also this year, from November 23 until January 6, Como will be a special place thanks to the magic Christmas atmosphere of Amici di Como that for 26 years make the places unforgettable places and heats the hearts of adults and children. The last edition was the most successful ever, with over 2 million 300 thousands people in piazza Duomo. A historical result that marks a decisive step towards the seasonal adjustment of the tourist calendar: Como has unquestionably become a reference destination for Christmas and New Year’s Day. The projections and the animation of Magic Light Festival in the historical centre of Como and from the past edition also in the typical villages of Lake Como with Lake Como Christmas Light, the over 85 exhibitors of the small market of tastes and handicraft, the Christmas crib exhibition, the concerts, the distributions of the gifts with the spectacular arrival of Santa Claus and Befana, the charity events, the fireworks and the open ice skating ring, aroused passion to many visitors and brought the images of Como around for the world thanks to the shots that each day travelled on the web through the social media. The same ingredients will be to the base of 26th edition with so many confirmations as well as many novelties that will arouse passion of the visitors. Como Città dei Balocchi is an event organised by Consorzio Como Turistica, promoted and supported by the Municipality of Como, with the contribution of the Lombardy Region, the support of Fondazione Cariplo and Camera di Commercio and with Amici di Como as a main sponsor, but also with so many other associations, bodies, institutions and companies that co-operated to this extraordinary success.
