Venice will shine of magic lights with My Christmas Venice and Christmas Art lighting design created by Chiara Bocchini and the artists involved in the project.
The poetry of Christmas trees, created by 15 artists who interpret the symbol of Christmas with their poetry and technique, will give life and splendor in Rio Terà dei Catecumeni and Rio dei Saloni.
The artistic journey of the trees ends with the giant tree / sculpture by Gianni Tarli artistic director of the MCV, near the Basilica della Salute.
An innovative event for Venice!
