There will also be solidarity initiatives, with Elfi per un giorno, where the little ones can bring their gifts to be distributed to family homes and local charities, and the Jamerry Christmas Concert, in favor of Unicef, with choral interventions and the choreography by young male and female dancers.

On some days, parents can also leave their children (starting from 5 years of age) at the  Theater's Babysitting service: children will have fun with animated readings, theatrical games, Christmas-themed art workshops, while they can go for Christmas shopping.

Also for the older ones some music events are scheduled, such as the Aperitif in Jazz in Lucca. Finally, in January, the Befana witch will arrive: with the popular committee of Piazza San Francesco on January 5, and on the 6th she will arrive from Aquilea.
