The beautiful luminarie decorative lights are an ancient art began in Italy in the 17th century and has gone from being a local tradition to becoming part of illuminated Christmas scenes in shop windows and events and even fashion shows.
Those who have had the fortune of spending time at Ferragosto in Lecce or Martina Franca and have admired the procession for the Assumption will have also seen the beautiful luminarie decorative lights. This ancient art began in Italy in the 17th century and has gone from being a local tradition to becoming part of illuminated Christmas scenes in shop windows and events and even fashion shows. One worth mentioning is the premiere of Dior Cruise 2021 under the creative direction by Maria Grazia Chiuri, in Piazza Duomo in Lecce, with as many as 45 models accompanied with background music by the La Notte della Taranta orchestra and Giuliano Sangiorgi of Negramaro.
The spread of the use of luminarie decorations internationally is also thanks to the business policies of MarianoLight, which is located in Corigliano d'Otranto in the province of Lecce and was founded in 1898. The company has expanded its offering, introducing new and striking arrangements that are suitable for illuminating building facades and for interior decoration.
Their catalog includes a wide variety of multicolor patterns in various sizes and forms, including ROSONE OXFORD in pink, snowflakes, cylinders of light, spheres, strings of micro-lights, butterflies, pinwheels, and hearts. Each gorgeous creation of colors and silhouettes inspires wonder and awe.
