Despite the difficulties caused by the Covid-19 health emergency, the city of Florence has created the annual F-Light event series, Firenze Light Festival 2020, this year in homage to Dante and entitled Sight, from the dark wood to the light.
From 8 December 2020 to 6 January 2021, F-Light Sight will cover urban spaces with new light, thanks to video-mapping, projections, lightshows and art installations. One of the most important events of its kind in Italy, it has also become a point of reference in Europe.
Many locations are involved including Palazzo Medici Riccardi, Ponte Vecchio, Museo Novecento, Piazza Santo Spirito and Piazza Santa Maria Novella. Lights will also illuminate Piazza Indipendenza, Via Calzaiuoli, Forte Belvedere and Piazza SS. Annunziata.
The 2020 edition of F-Light will also go beyond the historic center, spreading to all four suburban districts. There will also lights at different points in each zone: Q2, piazza delle Cure, Artemio Franchi stadium and piazza Niccolò Tommaseo in Settignano; Q3, piazza Gino Bartali in Favinana and piazza Niccolò Acciaiuoli al Galluzzo; Q4, piazza dell’Isolotto and piazza Paolo Uccello; finally, Q5, Le Piagge - Viper Theater and the San Donato Park in Novoli.
