An extraordinary digital art show organised by the Italian Institute of Culture and the Consulate General of Italy, supported by The City of Edinburgh Council, will open to the public on Edinburgh’s Calton Hill to coincide with the Christmas Lights 2022.

The project was inaugurated in December 2019 with a monumental video projection on the facade of the “Farnesina” Ministry building in Rome that also celebrated the 20th anniversary of the Farnesina’s Collection of Italian Contemporary Arts Foundation.
