Courmayeur opens the Italian winter season in the Alps

Welcome Winter

Music, lights, emotions, celebration, joy and sharing, these are the ingredients of Welcome Winter 2018, a true Coup d'envoi that officially illuminates the Italian winter season.

On December 8, in the heart of the historic center of Courmayeur, on a brilliant and animated street, the Welcome Winter 2018 will take place. This event, realized thanks to the collaboration of Maserati Italia and Cantine Ferrari, tells Courmayeur's sparkling side in a crescendo of emotions.

Starting at 6:15 pm Federico Russo, a TV and radio presenter, will go on stage on the stage of the Maserati Mountain Lounge in a country in the dark. In live connection with Piazza Abbé Henry and Brocherel Square, it will start the event waiting to turn on, at the end of the official countdown, all the lights of the country, the 20,000 lights of the great Christmas tree and illuminate with the fireworks the Courmayeur night skyline. A pirotechnic show that will counter the intense and sophisticated performance of Italian songwriter Nina Zilli. Following the notes of the gospel chorus "The Gospel Friends Reunion" will conclude a magical evening.
