This town is lit! Magical lights brighten up Italian Alps

An Italian town lit up – literally – in the biggest light festival ever in the Alps.The old bishop city of Bressanone was flooded with light and turned into an open-air gallery with big outdoor installations about water , thanks to 24 international acclaimed artists. The festival which combines lights, art, water and the environment aims to bring awareness on the importance of mountain water. Fish-kites flying through the darkness and dancing with the nature in front of the city’s dome, flowers and snow storms made of light attractred tourists from all over Italy and Europe. The theme chosen for the event had a special importance for the little city at the border with Austria, due to the fact that it was built in the point where rivers Eisack and Rianz meet. Mountainwater melting from glaciers and brought by the two rivers to the Dolomites area is crucial to the ecosytem but climate change is jeopardizing this precious resource.
