Birds Fly Around With You is an interactive light sculpture which will enchant young and old. The installation is based on the zoetrope, a machine that preceded cinema. In this machine a disk is rotated at a certain speed; anyone who looks through a small slot can see a figure that appears to move. A visitor who comes in close proximity of this installation will start the machine.
The birds light up one by one and thus create the illusion that they are flying. As more people move around the artwork, more birds will fly. This technical miracle has been developed, designed and programmed by the artist.

By purchasing the Skip the Line ticket, you will be able to access Brescia Castle with a preferential channel.

The funds raised will be donated to Fondazione Banco dell’energia, which supports families in difficulty due to energy poverty.
