Artistic Lights

Luci d’Artista - Artistic Lights - returns again this year to light up the city of Turin, as part of the rich programme of cultural events the city has to offer to citizens and visitors alike.

Luci d’Artista is a unique project using artificial light to transform the city into an open-air museum and a creative centre and meeting point for numerous avanguard artists.
The artists are asked to light up, each in his own way, some of the most beautiful points of the city. From 3 November 2010 to 31 January 2011, various international art creations will be competing under the open sky, with the streets and squares of Turin as the canvas of their art work. In this way the city lights up with light and colour: Via Garibaldi, the Mole Antonelliana, Piazza San Carlo, Porta Palazzo, Via Pietro Micca, Monte dei Cappuccini, are but a few of the landmarks transformed in this celebration of light and modernity.
The event, developed by the city of Turin itself with help from the Region of Piedmont, has become part of the artistic heritage of the city and each year prestigious works are added to the city’s collection. This year 21 light creations will be on show.
