An event (in Italian) dedicated to the ‘balance’ between light and darkness and to the celebration of the summer solstice, as day triumphs over night. We will observe the passage of the Sun on the ancient meridian line in Santa Maria Novella, we will experience and talk about the camera obscura, the dark space where light filters and produces images.
