This edition of "Light Art in Italy 2012 - Temporary installations" is stron-gly focused on the artists of light. My choice responds to a need forclarity between light art and lightdesign. Having worked and re-searched in this field for years, I am aware of the closerelationshipand overlap of art and design, and in fact, even at my work for the Po-litecnico of Milan, I have always promoted an active interaction bet-ween the two sectors.
