Artistic lighting and famous quotes from personalities who have told the story of the capital exalting its beauty.
In Via del Corso, the lights take the form of a 1,500-meter-long starry sky featuring famous quotes, verses, and sentences. From Orazio to Goffredo Mameli, from Ennio Morricone to Federico Fellini, including some of the most authentic Roman artists, such as Gabriella Ferri, Lando Fiorini, Antonello Venditti, Nino Manfredi, Alberto Sordi and Gigi Proietti.
The project, created using the latest lighting technology with a low environmental impact, is the work of Studio Medaarch, winner of the international “Make Christmas Lights Acea” 2019 contest, launched by Acea in collaboration with Maker Faire Rome-The European Edition. The photography contest “RomebyLight”, launched to get the public involved in describing the Christmas lights with pictures, was also organized in collaboration with Maker Faire. The contest, which runs from 8 December to 6 January, will reward the best photographs sent by participants using an app compatible with Ios and Android systems.
Acea’s intervention during the 2020 festive season will include also other areas of the city.
For example, in the other 14 Municipalities, as per tradition, Acea has installed Christmas trees in parks, squares and pavements; Via Veneto, for the second consecutive year, has contributed to the lights on the trees along its pavements. This year, for the first time, Piazza Navona will host a light show around its three monumental fountains (Fountain of the Four Rivers, Fountain of Neptune, Fountain of the Moro) every evening throughout the festive season.
