Fuori Salone - Heavy Light. This impressive event called Heavy Light, organized by Interni magazine in occasion of Milan Design Week had ten luminous installations scattered all over the city. Interni, supported by some leading companies, such as, S.Pellegrino and designers, made use of the Gates of the city to create luminous installations that changed Milan into a city of light, both in the strict sense of the word and metaphorically. On stage, the historical gates of Milan, as an opening and an expansion symbol of the city towards its increasingly dynamic and propulsive suburbs. Shown above, under the gate of Porta Garibaldi, in Piazza XXV Aprile is Jacopo Foggini's Plastic Palace a "majestical" chandelier made of plastic gold links, it was sponsored by Motorola. This Chandelier made it debut during the recent Turin Winter Olympic Games as a stage set for Luciano Pavarotti when he sang his most famous aria Nessun Dorma......"e' allora vincerooooooooooo"!
