“Bologna e la sua “Notte dei desideri” in Piazza Maggiore.”

New year”s in piazza Maggiore was the «Notte dei desideri», a celebration of music, images and multivisions. For the entire night, the façades of the Palazzo d”Accursio and Palazzo dei Notai, were frescoed with images by the multivision designer Paolo Buroni . In the crowning moment of the evening, the multiprojections onto the façades of the palaces of Piazza Maggiore followed the countdown with images of numbers, clocks and other elements linked to time. A “very visual” show, as Angelo Guglielmi (Chairman of the culture committee) of Bologna and ex director of the Rai3 televison channel) defined it, officially welcoming in 2005.”
