As a symbol of life, vitality and joy, light is one of the primordial elements of cheerfulness. Before the advent of the electric current were the so-called "parature" or "parazioni" to bring light and liveliness during the patron celebrations of Southern Italy. Arches and wooden poles were the supporting structure to small vases and glass cups, called lumini, containing the waste of oil produced on the territory. A few drops of "lamp oil", a spark... and the small flames embroidered in the darkness of the country streets a suggestive frame of light, exciting for the eyes and the heart. In the following decades, the illuminations have acquired the characteristics that still retain today, enriched over time by increasingly complex architectural and light structures. Recently the Apulian illuminations have experienced a remarkable development in terms of creativity and visibility, intertwining with the latest trends in contemporary design and proposing themselves as precious light installations capable of characterizing any environment, from domestic to commercial to industrial spaces.
