Cities: TURIN
Countries: ITALY
Date: 2011
In this impressive lighting installation, the Italian flag is summarized in three bright squared frames with white, red and green LED light ( in collaboration with dutch electronics company Philips and italian lighting fixture company Luceplan). These 168 meters long rings ,flicking floating on the dome at a height of 80 meters, are visibile from around the city and the mountanis. Enlightened by night, the surface of the rings, becomes a brilliant Italian flag. The Mole Antonelliana, with this sort of collier of bright rings, becomes a strong resumptive symbol of the celebration, visible from all perspectives,. It was set up on March 2011 and the period of the installation has been extended to 2012 long.
