Metis Lighting and Light Follow Behaviour in collaboration with cultural association “Via Padova è meglio di Milano” (Via Padova is better than Milan) decided to work on urban renewal and revitalization of Via Padova, a well know area for criminality issues and high immigration rate.
With this intention, Jellyfish Invasion, in 2011, Il giardino che non c’è (The garden that doesn’t exist), in 2012, and Piazza
La Luce (Place The Light), in 2013, took place: lighting installations for one night.

The given place for the installation was a green roof of the waterworks of Milan, a neglected area of which no one knows the function and where the access is not allowed.
With those installations, the purpose was to underline how sometimes, in the most difficult places, communities are more closed, active and helpful to face daily problems. Jellyfish Invasion, Il giardino che non c’è and Piazza La Luce are a sign and a dream for a fragile area, but full of energy and enthusiasm, characterized by a multicultural and real supportive community.
