Christmas in Ravenna | Ravenna in Luce
Various locations - Ravenna
Dates: from 21/12/2017 to 07/01/2018

For the Christmas holidays, Ravenna lights up thanks to Ravenna In Luce this year: an amazing tour throughout the streets of the city centre, to admire the extraordinary light creations by the visionary minds of video mapping artists.

Architectural video projections will make the buildings, the squares and the places linked to the history and the memory of the city even brighter.
Visioni di Eterno® - Trono d'Oriente is the hub of this festival, a project by N.E.O. Visual Project with the aim of valorising the Unesco Sites in Ravenna. The Arian Baptistery, built during the Reign of Theodoric as a place of worship for his Gothic people, will be the main stage for this year's edition.

In Piazza del Popolo, the mapping Il Cielo di Ravenna by the group Prospectika will enlighten the Palazzetto Veneziano with memories and ancient suggestions from artists who traveled and came in Ravenna over the years. Not far away, in the nearby Piazza Kennedy, Luna will be visible on the 5 century-old walls of Palazzo Rasponi Murat, production by festival Chartres en Lumières.

Finally, from 29th December to 1st January the special project MiRaggi, curated by the group from Bologna Apparati Effimeri, will lit up in the darkness of the night the apsis of the Basilica of San Giovanni Evangelista, one of the most beautiful churches in Ravenna.

#RavennainLuce is a project by the Department of Tourism of the Municipality of Ravenna, realised under the artistic direction of Andrea Bernabini.

Plays of light and 3D effects will reproduce a suggestive setting with a great visual impact, with complete respect for the sacredness of the Church of San Giovanni Evangelista. The glass windows of the apsis, together with the marvelous architectural and decorative elements, will be a source of great inspiration for creating optical illusions and reproducing extraordinary graphical patterns.
