Luci d’artista of Salerno 2021

Curiosities and history of the “Luci d’artista” of Salerno 2021

Luci d’artista of Salerno is an exhibition born in 2006 and that never ceases to disappoint, fascinate and enchant, giving a daydream to hundreds of thousands of visitors who go to admire the light show of Salerno.

This exhibition over the years has obtained increasingly large numbers up to the last edition with about 700 thousand people, who have flocked over the 3 months of the exhibition and about 40 km of cables for over 30 km of roads and streets affected by the exhibitions.

Luci d’artista is an exhibition that unites different places in Italy. For some years now, a twinning has been done with Turin: the two cities, in fact, often use “exchanging” the most beautiful works with each other in order to make them even more accessible to the public.


The 2021 edition of Luci d’Artista Salerno

This year’s edition of Luci d’artista is different from the previous ones for several reasons, such as: lights quantity, exhibition locations and Covid measures.

Regarding the latter, the city of Salerno has carried out several actions to comply with Covid regulations without affecting in any way the magnificent experience of the lights of Salerno.

The light show could not be interrupted this year because according to the mayor of Salerno: “it represents a signal of hope for the future, to contribute to the restart of the economy of Commerce and tourism for the whole city of Salerno”.
