    An important part of the festivities for San Ranieri in Pisa is the Luminara which takes place on the evening of June 16, the eve of the patron saint's feast day. The architectural details of the palaces, churches, towers and bridges along the Arno river are recreated with wooden frames which are fitted onto the buildings and on these frames candles are attached and lit after sunset. Over 100,000 lumini [how candles are called in Italian when they are inside a container, glass in this case] burn and reflect on the river. The city along the Lungarno simply glows. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * La Luminara di San Ranieri è una festa che si svolge a Pisa d'estate, la notte del 16 giugno. Ogni anno circa 100.000 lumini vengono posti su telai in legno che disegnano le forme architettoniche di chiese, palazzi e torri dei lungarni. Dopo l'accensione, per effetto del riverberarsi della miriade di luci tremule nelle acque dell'Arno, e grazie allo spegnimento dell'illuminazione pubblica e privata, al visitatore viene offerta una suggestione unica, dal sapore antico.
