I Will Keep A Light Burning!

Venice 1610:  Galileo finished refining a telescope he built to be able to observe the night sky. In the same year, he published his book The Starry Messenger where he shared his thoughts on what he had observed.

Rome 2011: With 500 lit candles, French artists Renaud Auguste-Dormeuil, created “I Will Keep a Light Burning” to celebrate  the 400th year anniversary of Galileo’s achievement. The candles were arranged to recreate the starry sky that Galileo observed through the telescope he painstakingly put together on the night of 14 April 1611.

This same work was reproduced for the Paris Nuit Blanche 2011 on October 1 at Square Louise Michel in Montmartre.
