WHERE: ASIAGO AIRPORT- AIRPORT ROMEO SARTORI, ASIAGO, VICENZA, ITALY
Known locally as the “fiocchi di luce” this translates as flakes of light. This is referring to the snow that surrounds the small town in the heart of the Veneto mountains in the Alpine foothills.
The pyromusical extravaganza is set to light up the skies and return once again for the 12th edition of the largest annual firework shows in the Veneto region of Italy.
Held at the Airport Romeo Sartori over the three nights there is a mixture of music and entertainment along with some extraordinary musical pyrotechnics to end the evening with a bang.
All the three days have different themes, with this year’s theme being “Enchantment – Ode to the woods”. This is from a time when the local forest was nearly lost following devastating weather to hit the region. Life, nature, respect, and commitment is the way forward to show how important the mountains and the plateau are to everyone.
Friday 15th February – Piazza Carli
“Shoots” – this is a tale of the life that still exists in the woods after everything may seem destroyed.

Following the tradition, there will be three highly qualified companies of different nationalities participating in the programme. The companies compete amongst themselves showing the best of their work to the international audience that attends the event.
Be captivated by the extraordinary variety of the musical firework displays on each of the evenings. The music for the show is chosen by both the organisers of the event and the participants making sure that it keeps in with the theme, culture, and tradition of the nation.
Asiago fireworks are not to be missed, with the event taking place on the weekend after Valentine’s day why not treat a loved one to a magical weekend away in the beautiful mountains, made more memorable by one of the many unique events in Vicenza, Italy. There is plenty to see and do all throughout the event but can be quite busy so make sure that you get there early to get a good viewing spot. Also, the weather can be on the chilly side this time of year so make sure that you wrap up warm.
