Magazine launch

23 September 2021, 6.30 pm

The Light Observer Magazine explores the theme of light in a biannual publication. For the occasion it will introduce itself to the Roman public and do what it does best: create new content about light, but this time in a live performance with artists and editors.

Artist Cecilia del Gatto will talk about her project on fireflies, bioluminescent animals used by the Japanese army during World War II, while artist José Angelino will present one of his video works created with a telescope to capture the moment when two sea currents meet in the light dawn.


Light is such a vast and inspiring subject. It deeply influences artists. photographers, filmmakers, scientists. It is part of our everyday life: sunlight, screens, lamps, neon signs. For many of us it influences our feelings and perceptions. Yet it remains mysterious and evocative. As a biannual print magazine, The Light Observer aims to explore light in all its forms.


The event will take place on the Auditorium’s roof.
Free entrance until capacity reached.
