Starting next September 21 (2023), a beautiful initiative called "Prevention and Social: let's light up Fort Michelangelo" will begin.

Organized by the Lions Club Civitavecchia Porto Traiano with the support and authorization of the Lazio Maritime Directorate, this series of events will give us the opportunity to see the Fort Michelangelo in a new light (literally!) and at the same time to reflect on important issues.

The aim is to raise awareness of issues such as health prevention and environmental protection. It is also proposed to recall some national holidays and symbols through the artistic illumination of the exterior of the monument, which will be carried out at night by the staff of the Port Authority of Civitavecchia.
