Alberobello, 18th July 2018
Wednesday, July 18th, at 20.30, the lights on the trulli were turned on, illuminating the whole Monti area, the Trullo Sovrano and the Belvedere until the end of summer.
Every evening the marvelous cone-shaped houses of the capital of Unesco will light up in a blaze of colors and light effects that will make Alberobello even more magical.
The lighting was accompanied by the event "Pianist fly - ENGIE & Alberobello" which involved the lifting of a grand piano through a crane on which pianist Paolo Zanarella played for 40 minutes.
The «Summer lights» is one of the highlights of «Trulli Viventi - Summer 2018» the billboard created by the municipal administration from June to September. The lighting on the trulli is realized by the Municipality in collaboration with ENGIE, the company that since the 1st of April manages the Alberobello public lighting service.
«We thank ENGIE for providing us with the lights that will illuminate our trulli also for this summer we strongly wanted the Summer lights in a renewed form because it is a strong point of our calendar of events. Thanks to this initiative the evenings of Alberobello will be even more special and the lights will be a unique and special setting for the many events that are scheduled until September, so that the trulli can live every day and make fall in love the visitors that honor us with their presence».
Antonella Ivone, Alberobello Tourism Councilor
«We are truly honored to be at the side of Alberobello and its citizens, and to donate to this city evenings of colors, lights and energy. In addition to the partnership already undertaken with the Municipality for the renewal and efficiency of the entire public lighting network - which will bring over 60% of energy savings per year - we join this exceptional cultural initiative, also in favor of people and their quality of life, because we believe that together with far-sighted administrations, we can build together a true harmonious progress».
