The routes, the theme, the markets, the cribs and all the lights that will be installed in Salerno for the 2016/2017 Artist Lights!

Il Christmas slowly approaches and preparations are already underway Luci d'Artista 2016 / 2017 in Salerno, which again this year will amaze us with the many plays of lights and shapes in every corner of the city center.

The light installations will be inaugurated on November 5 at 17.00 and they will remain lit. until 22 January 2017.

The city of Salerno, therefore, will again be invaded by lights and colors and from the many characters that in every edition make the joy of adults and children. Each year a theme is chosen for the installations and generally the main protagonists are the fairy tale characters, dragons, exotic creatures, elements of the Universe and much more. This year there are also many new features including the Ferris wheel and cribs of sand.

The lights are mounted in the squares, in the villa, in the streets and in the Lungomare Trieste, which in general is also the place where many can be found Christmas markets.
