The Perseid meteor shower is passing over the clear sky of Italy and the rest of Europe. The new moon amplifies the magic of the most stellar night of the year, lit by bonfires on the beaches and shooting stars in the sky. In Italy, La Notte di San Lorenzo was once celebrated on August 10, but has now moved to August public holiday at the very peak of summer.
For humans everywhere, shooting stars have always had a connection with religious or superstitious rites: from pagan and biblical prophecies to romantic desires expressed by the Peynet Lovers. For those of us who work in the field of architectural projections, the meteor showers streaking across the summer sky take on an even more intense value, reflected inthe requests that come to Goboservice’s email address at this time of year.
Indeed it is because of this that we dedicate a section of our online store to a specific topic "sky and stars"(https://store.goboservice.com/en/standard-gobos/sky-and-stars.html) with a great range of astral images in black and white and full colour which can recreate a reflection of the natural beauty illuminating the night sky during the organized events.
It is our Midsummer Night’s Dream to find an outdoor space with an unobstructed view in order to take in the beauty of this night, before returning to work with more enthusiasm and creativity than ever!
Have a wonderful summer!
