The light installation created by artist C999 transforms Cortile della Pilotta into a great ballroom. The music is Verdi’s with the famous brilliant waltz that Nino Rota orchestrated for the film Il Gattopardo by Luchino Visconti. The lights switch on, the notes fill the air and everything around is a music box of luminous couples. Each note invites you to pause for a moment, to take a break from the frenzy of everyday life with the hint of a dance step. The spin of a waltz, the time of a dream.
