San Gimignano returns to relive the Dark Ages. No, the inhabitants of the Tuscan village, famous throughout the world for its multiple towers, will not be deprived of all the comforts of today, falling back suddenly in the medieval era. The Municipality has decided to join the Earth Hour WWF 2019, scheduled for Saturday 30 March. Lights out, therefore, at the Loggia del Teatro in Piazza Duomo: this is what the administrative council has ordered, on the occasion of the international event promoted by WWF to raise awareness of energy saving and sustainable mobility.
For the occasion, the lights that illuminate the Loggia del Teatro will be switched off from 8.30pm to 9.30pm, a time when everyone is invited to turn off the lights of the house, of a building, of a monument. «We renew with enthusiasm and conviction the adherence to this initiative - explains the councilor for the environment of the Municipality of San Gimignano Niccolò Guicciardini - because as municipal administration we have always embraced the objective of reducing energy consumption. For this reason, the invitation is also aimed at the whole population because they adhere to the initiative even if only by switching off their lights for an hour».
