Starry Night, Amsterdam becomes Van Gogh’s masterpiece

Those who live in the city know how difficult it has become to see the stars, metropolitan nights are hyper-lit by 24-hour bars, neon signs and endless rows of street lamps. To see a Starry Night like the one painted by Van Gogh you have to get away from the city’s light pollution or take a trip to Amsterdam. Yes, because until January 20 the Dutch capital will host the annual light festival and, with it, Starry Night, the work of the duo formed by the architect Ivana Jelić and the creative engineer Pavle Perović who gives new life to the starry sky of Van Gogh.

Hanging over a bridge at the intersection of two canals, the installation recreates the brushstrokes of the painting with over 1400 LEDs on it. When the sun goes down and the work is reflected in the water below it releases all its beauty, making the surrounding houses and streets part of a kind of living picture.

A work that leaves you speechless, as when walking along a mountain path, in the dark, we look up and we are amazed to see thousands and thousands of stars.
