F-Light, the event dedicated to the world of light, which in recent years has characterized the Florentine nights of the Christmas season, passes the baton to the new Green Line festival.
The monuments and squares of the city, from the center to the suburbs, remain the protagonists, with games of light and color, but Green Line also moves to the places of active citizenship and museums, to offer food for thought related to issues such as ecology, sustainability, climate change, and energy saving.
Precisely with a view to saving energy, the new festival sees a reduction in the number of light installations, while the program is enriched by a large thematic forum (Climate change and heritage), exhibition appointments and a series of artist interventions.
Theme in the theme of this first edition are the four elements, which will connect like a red thread all the artistic projects of the festival.
The locations and installations of the festival
