Every year, the city of Florence organizes musical concerts in at least 4 of the main squares of the city, with each one having a different type of music. Piazza della Signoria hosts classical music, Piazza SS. Annunziata generally jazz or gospel, Piazza della Repubblica generally more modern, alternative music... but the main concert with Italian pop stars is generally in Piazza di Stazione, right in front of the main SMN train station. We haven't seen yet who's the main singer/band for this year but we will post the info on our blog as soon as we have more details. Of course, there are fireworks at midnight too and chaos - generally everything is pretty safe but do expect crowds, particularly in Piazza della Stazione in front of Santa Maria Novella.
The dance clubs in downtown Florence and other pubs often also organize a party, while many restaurants will offer a New Year's Eve dinner you need to reserve ahead of time. There is plenty to do, just specific details generally come out closer to the date. Just come back and check our blog and FB page over the next two weeks, we will make sure to share what we find!
