To inaugurate this week dedicated to the Celebration of Light, an emotional preview is held live at Pomarance. On the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the italian reunification, Danny Rose displays for us in Piazza dei Priori a spectacular excursus of the happenings which charachterized the long, hard and passionate road that drove our beloved country to birth.

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.
