Indeed the exhibition, which features renewable energy –themed installations from designers and planners around the world, reveals its mysterious beauty only at night; it’s an intelligent and inventive commentary on energy and resource efficiency. Located in the buildings and gardens of the majestic Università Degli Studi, the show offers visitors a moment of pure magic!

Luca Trazzi  wanted the decorative, energy-related and structural elements of this building to work together to contribute to better efficiency overall.

Pendulum!  by Culdesac demonstrates that a very small contribution of energy can turn into a perpetual motion.
Jacopo Foggini ‘s “magic carpet” is made from scraps of acrylic glass.
Edel’s Diamante  contains hydrogen tanks capable of producing enough energy to power a small condo.
Marc Sadler’s Hot Pot  showcases Buderus’ cutting edge, energy-efficient technology in this cascading waterfall, which functions by heating water to varying temperatures.
