Florence has a special ability to surprise. Until January 6, 2019, the capital of Tuscany hosts the F-light, the yearly festival of lights that animates the Florentine Christmas illuminating more than fifteen monuments and places across the city through light projections, video mapping, artistic installations or complex colorful light games. “F-light your mind” is the motto of the festival and this year pays homage to Leonardo Da Vinci advanced thinking in the 500 anniversary of his dead. Here the light is a metaphor for the triad intelligence-culture-enlightenment of which Leonardo was standard bearer as an artist and a man of science. Ponte Vecchio, which works as a central axis of the festival, Palazzo Vecchio, Palazzo Medici Riccardi, Piazza Santa Maria Novella, Basilica di San Lorenzo, Novecento Museum, Piazza Santo Spirito, gates and towers of the city are the scenarios of this event that also includes cultural and educative encounters.


F-light 2018, el Festival de las Luces de Florencia

Florencia y su capacidad permanente de sorprender nunca deja de sobrecogernos. Entre el 8 de diciembre 2018 y el 6 de enero 2019, la capital de Toscana celebra el F-light, el festival anual de las luces que anima la Navidad florentina iluminando más de quince espacios y monumentos de la ciudad mediante proyecciones, videomapping, instalaciones artísticas o complejos y coloristas juegos de luces. «F-light your mind» es el lema del festival que este año rinde homenaje al pensamiento del genio Leonardo Da Vinci en el 500.º aniversario de su muerte, en un claro paralelismo que potencia el concepto de luz-inteligencia-cultura-conocimiento. Ponte Vecchio, Palazzo Vecchio, Palazzo Medici Riccardi, Piazza Santa Maria Novella, Basilica di San Lorenzo, Museo Novecento, Piazza Santo Spirito, puertas y torres de la ciudad… son protagonistas en un evento que además propone diversas actividades y encuentros culturales y educativos.
