Last July 21st, Mantua’s Palazzo Ducale lit up with works by the international artists taking part in the second edition of the city’s Light Art Biennale. Installations by Donatella Schilirò, Federica Marangoni, Nicola Evangelisti, Massimo Uberti, Edward Shuster + Claudia Moseley, Marco La Rosa, Davide Dall’Osso, Romano Mantovani Boccadoro, David Dimichele, and Fardy Maes will interact with the Medieval and Renaissance façades of the Gonzaga residence until October 7th, 2018.

Vittorio Erlindo, who conceived and curated the event, eloquently explains the motivation behind this artistic initiative: “Light gives shape and color to things, landscapes, environments, cities and people’s lives.

In the brief history since man appeared on the planet, humanity has played a central role in a constant flow of inventions that now allow us to have light 24/7.”
