The Night of the Wishes. A Projection Mapping Show

This year’s Christmas Eve will be a night of wishes for the Athenians! The sky above Kotzia Square will be filled with the traditional “Night of Wishes” lanterns, with the Town Hall starring in a specially designed audiovisual evening. At that night, residents and visitors of the city will be able to “light up” the city with their wishes, each one of them sending a lantern in the sky and experience an exciting spectacle and a unique audiovisual show, with the Town Hall Mansion on the background.
