7 July 2022
It is an incredible initiative promoted by the VI Municipality of Rome, which seeks to enhance the outskirts of the capital through art. This is “Light on the Towers”, the fantastic series of events that will accompany the weekends of the legendary summer in Rome and make them magical.
A fantastic initiative
It is a fantastic initiative that is coming to life these days and that for the next few weeks will fill the outskirts of Romewith shows and cultural events. “Light on the Towers” is the ambitious project of the VI Municipality of Rome, which proposes to discover the Roman suburbs through art.
Precisely for this reason, a series of shows and meetings have been organized, which in the coming weekends will take place in 11 districts of Rome. Throughout the month of July they will make the evenings of the mythical Roman summer incredible and will serve to increase the value of the suburbs, a fascinating area of the capital to be explored.
An unforgettable series of events
There are many and varied events that will come to life in the outskirts of Rome in the coming weeks. Every weekend starting on Friday, the shows and meetings will take place in two different areas of the suburbs. It will be really impossible to get bored!
For example in the Corcolle Gardens on July 9th there will be an oriental dance show, while on July 10th there will be an incredible fire show. In Borghesianathese days will instead be dedicated to sport. There will be some activities such as beach volleyball tournaments but also courses and workshops on gladiators and stage combat.
In the following weekend the shows will continue on the Breda Villageand in San Vittorino. On July 15 there will be a stand up comedy exhibition with Laura Formenti, while in San Vittorino there will be theatrical performances. Also in this case the fun is guaranteed!
On July 24th there will be a funny show by the comedian Marco Capretti in Lunghezza, in which he will analyze the virtues but above all the vices of mankind. There will be no lack of laughter but above all lightness. On the same day in Ponte di Nona there will be a fantastic piano concert on the music of the 80s.
In Finocchio on the 31 of July there will be an impressive show dedicated to astronomy, while in Castelverde the day before there will be a fun stand up comedy exhibition by Chiara Becchimanzi.
The festival will end in Colle Prenestino on the weekend of the 6 and 7 of August. There will be concerts, ballets and shows with fire, which will fill the evenings with magic, giving the “Light on the towers” an incredible ending.
Restarting through art
“Light on the Towers” is therefore a fantastic initiative that chooses to give value to a territory through culture, a sector that in recent years has been put in the last place due to the pandemic.
It is therefore an incredible way to enhance the Roman outskirts, but also to give a signal to restart, after the black times experienced. It is a great way to be reborn through art and lightness.
