Italienische Botschaft

In addition to ministries, embassies and their buildings are also regular guests at the FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS.

The Embassy of Italy with its neoclassical facade was participating in the festival for the first time. The video focused on the poet Dante Alighieri on the occasion of the 700th anniversary of his death and looked at his journey through Italian cities with different eyes. It reflects on them on overlapping levels, alternating between reality and fantasy, between medieval and contemporary man, between past and present, ensuring that the genius and works of the poet remain unforgotten.
