FLORENCE, ITALY – The 2018 edition of F-Light is dedicated to the genius of Leonardo Da Vinci: its title is F-Light your mind.
F-Light is the Festival of Light and the invitation to enlighten our minds using our brain and curiosity reminds us of the Renaissance genius Leonardo, whose death is celebrated 2019, 500 years after.
F-light brings beauty, magic and atmosphere in the city center, using the façades of our buildings and palaces and churches as a screen for thematic projections from December 8 through January 6.
December 8 is the beginning of this important festival, which gives a new aspect to the darkest period of the year. F-Light starts every year when the Mayor of Florence symbolically enlightens the tall Christmas Tree in front of the Duomo. Many more Christmas trees are displayed on the main squares of the city center: piazza Santa Maria Novella, in the courtyard of Palazzo Vecchio.
Works and drawings by Leonardo Da Vinci are going to be projected on the most famous bridge of Florence, Ponte Vecchio.
Palazzo Vecchio and Palazzo Medici will be lit in a scenographic way; and many more buildings such as the ancient gates of the city walls – porta al Prato, porta San Gallo, porta San Frediano, porta Romana and the San Niccolò tower are going to be changed by colors and lights.
