Also this year the Antonio Presti – Fiumara D’Arte Foundation renews the Ritual of Light, now on its 9th edition. It is an event taking place from 21st to the 23rd of June to celebrate the summer solstice, when the sun triumphs over the dark and those who participate consciously choose a path of light.
It is a particular moment of the year, full of symbols whose goal is to give future generations positive messages, linked to values and hope. Poets, philosophers, musicians, dancers and artists, both local and international will be involved in the cerimony.
Mandala installations, dances, songs and universal sounds of musicians and performers will accompany visitors during the day, in an invitation to active, civil and spiritual listening, to become protagonists of the Ritual.
The Fiumara D’Arte Park, in this single annual occasion, opens to the public the 38th Parallel Pyramid to give the traveller a high and open view on the universe. The ritual is offered itself as a word of beauty.
The founder Antonio Presti says:
«we want to give to the new generations the opportunity to gather every year, in those summer days, to always choose the triumph of light above darkness. In order for the future to be nourished by the value of universal beauty in its becoming a ritual statute».
The Ritual of Light will be an opportunity to absorb the energy of the works that distinguish the Fiumara d’Arte, to visit the rooms of the Atelier sul Mare that have made the hotel overlooking the waters of Castel di Tusa, of live for three days immersed in performance and exhibitions and participate in the magic of the rite itself between the walls of a pyramid that opens up like a still heart, into which light penetrates which is both a symbol of knowledge and inner rebirth.
Visitors who participate in the “Rite of Light” are advised to preferably wear white clothes and respect silence.
