Alberobello Light Festival LIFE 2017
Finally the most spectacular event is back to the town of trulli. This year Alberobello Light Festival will take place from the 30th September till the 8th of October. Under its new name LIFE, it's ready to amaze you by eight art pieces in the most well-known locations of Alberobello.
Here is the itinerary to see all the installations. Lightcones, responsible also for the artistic direction of the Festival, will animate the Trullo Sovrano with their work QUINTESSENZA. Together with AGIT (Young Tourism Entrepreneurs Association), they organize already the fifth edition of the event, evolved a lot throughout the years.
Then proceed along the Corso Vittorio Emanuele and Piazza del Popolo to reach the panoramic viewpoint Belvedere. Keep your eyes and ears open for RESIDENCE OF LIGHT AND MUSIC. This Croatian entry is dedicated to the funny way to play the music instruments. Next to it, in the basement of Santa Lucia Church you will find IN PARALLEL from Slovenia, where art interacts with the UV light.The Rione Monti trulli district, precisely in Via Monte Pasubio street, will host LIVE LIGHT PAINTING, an international union of 3 artists from Canada, UK and Italy. The luminous paintings will be created on tablet and projected, accompanied by saxophone. It seems to be the perfect place to make a selfie.
The concentration of the light and beauty will also be around the St. Anthony's Church. The trullo-shaped building itself will become VIRTUAL AQUARIUM, where everybody could create, paint and free fishes. This installation by Carole Purnelle, the artistic curator of LIFE and co-founder of Ocubo from Portugal, will fascinate both adults and certainly children.
Nearby Villa Donnaloia Park will open its doors to three pieces of light art. Both 1000 LIGHTS from France and MAGIC GARDEN from Croatia will talk about nature and environment, fragility and hope through technology. At last but not the least, NEVER ENDS is created by local Italian artists. It represents horse as the symbol of a game and the chance to revive the childhood emotions also for grown-up people.
