Falla Sueca-Literato Azorín
The Falla Sueca-Literato Azorín wants to win from their neighbors with a very different light display. The Colón Market is the inspiration for these lights, as it pays homage to the building of the Colón Market. The light display counts 19 arches and a gate, with a length of 19 meters and a width of 24 meters.
On February 10th, the formal opening of the light display, the Union of Musical Artists of Montroi played live music which accompanied the motion of the lights. After 16 years, 9 years of collaboration with Mariano Light and the past 7 years a collaboration with the Italians De Cagna, this year it is up to the company from Cordova, Iluminaciones Ximénez, who focus on sustainability and bonding in the neighborhood Ruzafa, which is a radical switch when you compare it to the concept of the lighting the past 5 years.

The Falla Cuba-Puerto Rico has already revealed some of the details of its lighting. The set-up counts 300.000 points of lights, 400 meters of panels and 20 sets with 40 3D lamps; one can find a surprise in the inside of each lamp.
