Italy lights up: Rome is brought to light
Aeroporti di Roma and Roma Capitale are illuminating Christmas
Aeroporti di Roma and Roma Capitale are illuminating Christmas with “Italy Lights Up”, the extraordinary lighting project that will beautify the Leonardo da Vinci international airport and the historical sites in Rome with white and coloured leds, plays of light and projections onto jumbo screens.
An artistic flight of fifty butterflies with wing spans of two metres achieved with over eighteen thousand leds installed at Terminal 1 – departures area –will light up the capital’s airport from Monday November 28. The switch will be pressed by ADR chairman, Fabrizio Palenzona, and the Mayor of Rome Gianni Alemanno, inaugurating the event.
Furthermore, two Christmas trees, at Terminal 1 and 3, will welcome citizens and tourists arriving at and leaving the airport in the year of celebrations for 150 years of Italian Unification and the 50th anniversary of the first Italian airport.
The Leonardo da Vinci international airport that sees a yearly flow of more than 36 million passengers thanks to the 210 destinations that can be reached from Rome and the 110 operating airlines is yet another endorsement of excellence of the Italian genes ranging from culture through technology, tradition and modernity.
