Ever since I read that the annual Firenze Light Festival would commemorate the 50th anniversary of the landing on the moon, I planned to see it. However, what with one thing and another, all of a sudden it was the second-to-the-last day and I still hadn’t gotten to it. So, despite the minor travails of taking the bus on a Sunday*, I went into town. The installations were entrancing! Not only was I moved by memories, I was impressed by the cleverness of the artists who created them.
The festival, which is also known as F-Light, was billed as Moon F-Light this year. How appropriate!
*I love my bus route, but it’s not at its best on Sundays and holidays. It doesn’t run that frequently and often doesn’t show up as scheduled. The bus into town was ten minutes early and if I hadn’t been checking the app for real-time updates, I would have missed it. The bus home was ten minutes late.
