Barcelona by candlelight. Between Silence & Light by Michela Mezzavilla

Barcelona a la llum de les espelmes I

Magic and poetry happened in Barcelona last Tuesday night thanks to Between Silence & Light installation by the Illumination Designer Michela Mezzavilla.

” I wanted to bring back a little light to each of the endless wounds on these walls” she said.

In order to create this ambience of semidarkness, the APDI, Professional Association of Illumination Designers that organised the event,  finally got the city coucil permission to totally turn off the street lights of the area! 

Flickering flames filled the corners of the place and the word SILENCE was written with candles on the cobblestoned pavement of Sant Felip Neri square, in the Gothic heart of the city. It was the Urban Light Festival of Barcelona: LLUM BCN
