The illuminations on the sea in Follonica
Once or twice a year, in July or August about 30 lit and decorated boats leave from the shore of the Golfo del Sole and throw the floating lights that after about an hour arrive in front of the Piazza a mare where the real party starts with live entertainment. For some years the festival of illuminations was also accompanied by a summer carnival edition for children’s happiness.
