Fashion, design, creativity comes in many forms in Milan.
This Christmas season and until January 10, it will express itself through the LED Festival, let there be light 60 ways.
From trams and trolleys to buildings, light will be the star for the holidays.
We learn from Milan is Tourism that at the end of the 19th Century, Milan changed from gas to electricity for its street lights and also launched an electric powered tramway network.
This 2nd edition of the LED Festival celebrates this past history, the present and the future.
The LED Project aims:
"Milan, already Capital of the design, becomes with Led an international display window, a place of innovation able to offer a stimulating ‘cultural experience’ for the exchange and the comparison of knowledge. An appointment that involves the entire creative and productive system of the metropolis, increasing from the first edition the expositive circuit from the public places to the art galleries, the ateliers and the shows-room, in a logic of a widespread event that can involve the city to 360 degrees."
Amongst the 60 installations on display, along with the young talent there will be works by 10 world known designers including Karim Rashid, Gilbert Moity, Matteo Thun...
Milan sees the light 60 ways, from moons to fountains and butterflies.
Will I be there to take it all in?
