This edition of "Light Art in Italy 2011 - Temporary installations" is strongly focused on artists of light. My choice responds to a need for clarity, but, working and researching in this field for years, I am aware of the close relationship and overlap of art and design, and in fact, even in my work at the Polytechnic of Milan, I have always promoted active interaction between the two sectors. Considering the difficulty of comprehending by reviewers, who may be professionals , students or readers that approach this art for the first time, I decided to attach a DVD with videos that have been supplied by the artists, in order to understand better some of the published installations.
