Art All Night! Notte Bianca 2014

Is an artistic event in Florence that encompasses the city squares, theaters, churches, civic organizations and museums where the night comes alive and stays awake until the wee hours of the morning (during the week and just before a holiday). Musicians, light projections and installations can be found in many of the major squares all with the quest to “inspire a sense of belonging” in Florence. I loved the floating balls of light on the Arno and the laser and image projections on the most iconic buildings in Piazza Signorina! Here is the description from the Notte Bianca site:
