THE FIRST EXHIBITION ON THE LIGHTHOUSE OF PUNTA TAGLIAMENTO
BIBIONE – VENICE, ITALY
The Lighthouse presents itself in an exhibition entirely dedicated to the protagonists of its history.
Images and voices from past times. Memories of the daily care of its light, of family gatherings and new loves born in the shade
of the tower, of war and bombardments.
A choral story, narrated by different voices, thanks to the precious testimonies and the photographs collected so far.
And for the little ones…
the guardian LuMe will be waiting for you to tell you all the stories and secrets of the Bibione Lighthouse
Don’t miss it!
More than a century ago, in the ancient woods of Punta Tagliamento, blown by distant winds
a strange sailor disembarked with his lantern of Luce (Light).
From that day, the old Lighthouse LuMe has watched silently over the island of Bibione,
keeping secrets… and Memories
In 2019 we have embarked on an amazing journey which has taken us to the limits of memory, towards shores yet to be explored.
We have found photographs faded with time and pages of history in the voices of the protagonists.
What drew us into this adventure was the Lighthouse itself, in the recollection of the people who guarded it and indicated to us the route to follow.
Some of the protagonists
“Some evenings we met in the workshop, near the waterworks.
Guardian Paro brought his gramophone and we all danced together.”
“I was 8 years old… in April, the 29th. They told us Germans have landed at the lighthouse so off we went on our bicycles with my mother”
“My grandfather was the guardian of the lighthouse. I remember in the summer when, sleeping with the window open, I heard the sea, that calm sea”
