APD used mapping techniques to produce the show, combining large-scale projections with 3D effects, music that was specifically composed for the show, and special effects (such as snow) to enhance the spectators’ sense of immersion.Four 22,000-lumen projectors and 32,000 watts of sound power, distributed over six towers, were used to create a three dimensional, surround-sound effect.

This is the second consecutive year that Toledo has begun Christmas with a large-scale audiovisual show produced by APD.As in the previous year, ACCIONA Producciones y Diseño prioritised accessibility and sustainability, with special zones reserved for people with physical and sensorial disabilities.The event was also designed to be “carbon neutral”.The CO2emissions associated with the event will be calculated and offset by a clean energy project (Tuppadahalli Wind Energy), to ensure that the total final emissions is netted to zero.
