2017 “The Squaring of the Circle: the day shows, the night reveals… And nothing is as it seems!”
First Prize “Calles Illuminadas” in Falla Cuba y Literato Azorín.

The project is the result of playing with the ‘forms’ of the Luminarie and starts form the idea of ‘solving’ one of the great problems dating back to the origins of geometry: the “squaring of the circle”.
During its designing, an idea is coming off: if the circle represents the sky, from the unalterable circular motion, and the square represents the Earth that is the stability and the static nature, by attempting to visualize the transition from the square to the circle, from Earth to Heaven, we found out another symbol, the Heart!
Our solution to the ‘squaring of the circle’ is the Heart that is Love!
Moreover, the position of this Heart in our project is meaningful, it’s the 6th portal. The number 6 is a magic number, rich in significance: it represents the perfect balance and the absolute love; it’s the number of harmony and beauty. In Valencia it aims to express the love of the city and its citizens for their Madonna of Desamparados and it will be set out with the ignition of the beating Heart of Lights.
A brand new installation consisting in a LED wall, which is fully integrated with traditional Luminarie. The whole project creates very exclusive sound and lighting effects: for the first time we will use 80,000 RGB changing color lights, they are programmed by a special software that allows us to create amazing light effects modulated on the rhythm of songs specially chosen to reveal the emotion of this project.

2016 “El arte es dinámica, la Belleza es eterna!”   First Prize “Calles Illuminadas” at Falla Cuba y Literato Azorín. 

The realized project is titled “”El arte es dinámica, la Belleza es eterna!” and it’s the story of a journey, the narrative of architectural feats of Men starting from the Beginning, going through the Present it suggests a possible Future, starting from the consideration that the ancient human activity continues to be a source of inspiration for modern architecture. Our journey starts from the element in the background, the Cube of Light; it is the smallest pixel of our image, the original brick, and the foundation from which everything takes shape. It continues with Dolmens, megalithic structures very simple but with a metaphysical nature that establish a connection with the Divine, in the earthly world if used as temples, in the afterlife if used as funerary monuments. MarianoLight is inspired by these ancient architectures and reinterprets them in a geometric gallery composed by 5 Portals / Dolmens that, starting from the Cube of Light, the smallest element that composes them, gradually get bigger and reaches out to the Future, represented by the two Rotating Towers, such as avant-garde architecture at the service of man and his new and old needs, even greatness.

The light show has been programmed with a specific software : a LED Light Controller operating by modulating the brightness, dynamics and color of each LED and showing more than 16 million colors, achieving a new vision for lighting. For the first time in Valencia, musical lighting has been controlled by more than 100 DMX channels.

 


2015 ” The Stargate “

MarianoLight was inspired by the feature film written and directed by Roland Emmerich, “The Stargate”.

The project consists of a portal that reproduces the typical shape of a Mayan pyramid and ends with a portal that recalls instead the Egyptian pyramids. The connecting “tunnel” symbolizes the theory that the Egyptian pyramids and Mayan are”connected” to each other because they were built according to the same pattern and reproduce the stars of the constellation of Orion.
Enjoy the plays of light and you feel like being “transported” into another reality, into another galaxy.

2012 FLOREAL

This year, the lighting of the Luminarie was marked by the rhythm of the exciting song “Buongiorno a te” (Good morning to you) sung by Luciano Pavarotti, a choice also aimed to emphasize our Italian brand.

Who participated at the first lighting  could appreciate the introduction of a new technique, applied for the first time to the Luminarie: the dimming, which allowed  to smooth the intensity of light, modulating it on the background music and its rhythm.

Overall, for the realization of the Luminarie we used 1,400,000 LED bulbs, the new choosed technology provides energy savings and environmental respect.

In particular, the project is inspired by the theme of the Falla Cuba Y Literato Azorin “Floreal” and its colorful flowers. You can see a virtual scenery, there is an impressive entrance, a magic door, which leads into an elegant Palace of Light, in the Renaissance style. At the center of the two towers, a star rises and takes the colors of Valencia: red, blue and yellow.

You walk in a triumphant triple tunnel, then you arrive in an Enchanted Garden, where you can admire a breathtaking composition of Light Flowers, their colors are shimmering and they encase the Falla “Floreal”. You can also join the Falla along a flourished gallery, the Chantilly Gallery.

Our purpose is to create a scenery that suggested the Spring through the combination of bright colors and that make you feel in a fantastic place, halfway between dream and reality, an “Enchanted Garden”, where you can feel the childish serenity and joy.
