Luci d'Artista Salerno 2021: all you need to know


The Luci d'Artista 2021 event combines two editions: the XV of 2020, which did not take place, and the XVI of 2021, thus also recovering that of last year. So this year we can expect more than just a light show, in fact, given the previous editions where the main themes were the marine and animal world, surely in this new double edition we can only expect something magical.


For this 16th edition, the majestic Christmas tree of Salerno will dominate in Piazza Portanova with its 20 meters high, 800 branches and 72 thousand white LEDs with flashing effect. For the first time the Christmas tree has been purchased and not rented by the city of Salerno, for a total expenditure of 210 thousand euros. There is no doubt that we can expect a magnificent Christmas tree, which will certainly represent the highlight of this new edition.


For this edition, the city garden of Salerno will host a series of luminous installations concerning animals and mythological figures, in particular the figures of Pegasus, the Unicorn and the Phoenix.


In Piazza Flavio Gioia, perhaps one of the most particular squares in Salerno, also known as "the Rotonda", for this edition spring arrives early, in fact here will "blossom" the Flowering Tree 15 meters high. The nearby Piazza Sant'Agostino will be adorned with branches and coloured flowers, while Piazza Vittorio Veneto will welcome the many tourists arriving with a Gigantic Santa Claus.


Unfortunately, for this edition, most likely due to current regulations, it was decided not to set up the big Ferris wheel in Salerno in the Concordia square.


Unfortunately for this year, the great concert of New Year's Eve in Salerno 2021 will not be held due to current COVID regulations, unlike what was initially planned in the brand new Piazza della Libertà.
