Luci D'Artista


In 1998 the City of Turin commissioned 14 Italian artists to design Christmas illuminations for the thoroughfares of the city. Each year since then, new commissions by international artists (Mario Airo, Daniel Buren, Jenny Holzer, Rebecca Horn, Joseph Kosuth, Nicola de Maria, Mario Merz, Jan Vercruysse and Gilberto Zorio) have been added to this annual city-wide display. Part of Turin's ongoing regenerative strategy, the project and its related programme of events comprises an important element in the city's endeavours to confirm its role as a major international centre for contemporary art.
