Bassano del Grappa switches off its lights for Italian national campaign



The Italian energy-saving campaign“M’Illumino dimeno – I will use less light”, which raises awareness on energy saving by encouraging individuals to turn off their lights for an hour and a half on the18th of February 2011, was the occasion for the City of Bassano del Grappa to draw attention to its sustainable energy management policies.
Bassano went a few steps further and switched off the lights of some of its main monuments and squares: the famous “Ponte degli Alpini” (“Alpini’s Bridge”) as well as the Garibaldi and Libertà squares remained unlit from 6 pm until 11 pm.

Through this, the city succeeded in drawing public attention to Bassano’s involvement in the PLUS project and the city council’s efforts to decrease light pollution.
