In the North of Italy, near Turin, is a tiny village Viganella with a population of 200 people. Jokingly called Siberia, because from mid-November to early February here does not look the sun. The rays just can’t get into the valleys between the mountains, where the houses are built. Blogger nathoncharova talks about how people have solved this problem.

Someone local has offered to install on top of the mountain, at an altitude of 870 meters, the huge mirror that direct the rays on Viganella. Carried out the necessary calculations. It turned out that the area of the reflector shall not be less than 40 square meters. And the cost of the project amounts to one hundred thousand euros.

Its services of production offered by the companies from Germany, Switzerland and the USA. However, the Patriotic Italians chose the Roman firm.

Steel sheet with a reflective surface installed in 2006. It is equipped with a computer controlled, through which the mirror rotates to follow the sun so that it evenly illuminates the village. Since the “artificial sun” may cover not more than 300 square meters, the computer ensures that all areas of the village were covered with light equally.

The way of life of the inhabitants of Viganella changed. In the winter they are not in a hurry to go home after the service in the Church, spend a lot of time in the main square.
