These photos are of an art installation in Torino (Turin), Italy by artist Daniel Buren. It is called Tappeto Volante, which means “Flying Carpet,” and it is located in Piazza Palazzo di Città, which is the town hall square. At night, Daniel’s art lights up the square with a soft glow, as part of the luci d’artista events of Torino.
Luci d’artista is a cultural event initiated by the city of Turin since 1998. Each year, around the Christmas holiday season (from Nov – Jan), the city is bathed in art installations revolving around a theme of light. Many of the city’s piazzas (squares), buildings, and streets are covered in lights, adding to the warm, festive feeling in the air.
These photos were taken by my friends and me during our Great Northern Italy Adventure, on December 26, 2012. If you think the photos are decent, then Paolo, Alessandra, or Joseph probably captured them; if you find them to be hideous and nauseating, then I might have taken that one 😉
