This year, the Christmas lights of the Capital city shine in a starry sky with the Rome by Light Acea 2021 project. With a skyline of lights showing graphics recalling the most representative and exciting sites of the city, the concept of this third edition tells the history of Rome.
The lights in Via del Corso take the form of a 1,500-metre-long starry sky, on which seventeen installations of artistic lights are placed, shaping the profile of some iconic monuments and buildings that describe the Capital city’s history.
In the city’s town halls, Acea Group has made Christmas trees illuminated with fibre optic bundles with more than 300 light tails.
A total of 300,000 led lights, with low environmental impact – reducing 45% of daily energy consumption –, have been used to combine energy saving with enhancement of the city’s artistic heritage. The Rome by light Acea 2021 project, designed by Studio Medaarch, has a modular structure that allows to create, modify and, first of all, reuse installations.
In line with the commitment of the Group to spread a sustainability culture, Acea has also joined the “Natale a Roma – Regaliamoci una città sostenibile” (Christmas in Rome – Let’s gift a sustainable city) campaign, promoted by Fao and Roma Capitale, to raise the citizens’ awareness of the SDGs goals of 2030 UN Agenda. In fact, Acea has integrated a ring nut with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations into its illuminations.
