Another form to celebrate the 150th anniversary of our country.
A dinner becomes a teathrical event and part of the scenographical display, becoming festival, convivium and display. The italian peninsula will be crossed from north to south: heading southward artistic treasures, molodramma, popular music and historical events of the Risorgimento will melt togheter in a travelling time machine. During the motion of tis time machine, able to bring back to us the history of places, people and civilizations that charachterize the Italian peninsula, a particular homage will be given to Volterra and her past, from the age of the Etruschi to Middle Age. The piazza will tell her story to the public sitting for dinner by the means of taste and images. Visualscapes and Soundscapes, melted with the smell of delicate foods, will bring back voices, sound and noises of a past that still belongs to the city of Volterra.

Danny Rose was born from the experience of Sergio Carrubba and Paola Ciucci, who in the last twenty years have directed the work of a well known éuipe of artist active in Paris. This ensemble created scenes which were represented all around the world. Some of the most famous have been held during the white night in Barcelona, the closing ceremony of the late Winter Olimpics in Salt Lake City, or in the "Notte Tricolore" (celebrated in the suggestive location of the ancient Markets built by Emperor Traian at Rome). Last in chronological order, we may account the successes and the credit received for the Gothic Dream performed in Piazza del Campo and during the "Expo  multimediale" in Siena, and for The Soul and the Music held at Theatre S. Maria della Scala. 
The creations of Danny Rose will be released site specific for the squares of Volterra and Pomarance. These location will be turned in a sort of Opéra LumiÈre, where - with the means of sounds, images, voices, and the surrounding landscape - the beholder will be caught by the magic that only a dream can give.   
The aim of this first edition of the Festa della Luce is polimorphing the cities visited in teathers without roof, without walls and to celebrate this new art , which turns old stones in a web able to catch the colours of light.
