LIGHT IS LIFE - Brescia

Festa delle luci A2A

Description

Light is Life is the major event organised by A2A as part of the events scheduled to celebrate Bergamo Brescia – Italian Capital of Culture 2023. Sponsored by the Municipalities of the two cities, the Festival wants to express a lively international perspective, while at the same time aiming to involve the area’s productive energies, cultural institutions and educational venues.

The two cities will become veritable open-air art galleries, thanks to the presence of the works of light that 17 artists from all over the world have chosen to animate the symbolic places of the Italian Capital of Culture.

Angelo Bonello, an internationally renowned Light Artist, is entrusted with the Artistic Direction of the event, while Pam Toonen is responsible for curating the works of the Light Art Collection of Amsterdam present at the exhibition.

The Festival also wants to illuminate the path to building a sustainable and solidarity-based future. This is why Light is Life was born out of a double awarenessenvironmental, thanks to the use of energy from renewable sources, and social, through the support of Banco dell’energia.

The Festival provides concrete support for the activities of Banco dell’Energia, which for years has been committed to combating energy poverty in Italy.

A2A will donate to the Banco dell’Energia a sum equivalent to the volume of energy used to light the event, in addition to the proceeds from sponsorships, sales of merchandising and publishing products. The funds raised will support projects aimed at Bergamo and Brescia families in difficulty.

The Festival will be powered by renewable sources, and the installations are designed according to energy efficiency criteria. Light is Life is also an opportunity to disseminate tips and advice for optimising domestic energy consumption.

In Brescia an exceptional testimonial, Olympic champion Marcell Jacobs, will officially kick off the entire event on Friday 10 February 2023 at 7pm in Piazza della Loggia.
