The final event chosen to end this festival is a poetry lecture from the works of Italo Calvino. In this premiere, Mr Palomar wanders around all the works of Calvino: from Le cosmicomiche to Le città invisibili, from Marcovaldo to Ti con zero. The place is filled up by the delicate words of this great writer, surrounding the public and moving the beholders...
To mark more evidently the communion of the two main workshops of cultural history active in the city of Volterra (the square and the Jailhouse during the last decades, the Compagnia della Fortezza will take part of the representation going on stage in an extraordinary apparition.

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.
