Venice, St. Mark's Square returns to host concerts after seven years. And it will do so with Zucchero


In Venice, St. Mark's Square is once again becoming a concert venue after 7 years of bans. Zucchero will arrive on July 3 and 4.

In Venice, St. Mark’s Square is returning to host concerts after seven years of bans, which had been instituted for reasons partly related to safety and partly to tourism, since in the past the area’s merchants had complained of inconvenience due to the presence of a fixed stage for large concerts in the square, with all that this entailed. The square therefore reopens for concerts with a double live performance by Zucchero: the Reggio Emilia-born artist will land in the lagoon on July 3 and 4. Prices are similar to those of many concerts: from 50 euros for the most modest tickets to 200 for the front row.

The City Council has assured that the inconvenience will be minimal: the stage will be set up and taken down at night. Satisfaction from Mayor Luigi Brugnaro, who expressed his remarks via Twitter, “I am honored to announce that after 7 years great music returns to St. Mark’s Square with Zucchero. On July 3 and 4 Venice will host the only two Italian stops of his ’The Best Live’ tour.”
