A Celebration of Light
Following an announcement by UNESCO, the first "International Day of Light" is set to take place on the 16th May 2018. The date of this new annual event coincides with the 16th May 1960 when American physicist, Theodore Maiman, unveiled the world’s first fully functioning laser device. Used in scientific, industrial, communications and art, laser technology is the focus of a series of international events intended to raise public awareness of the importance of light in a wide spectrum of applications. The Water and Light Festival from 10 - 26 May in Bressanone/Brixen is part of a coordinated global series of Events.
