Giant Mirror for Sun-Deprived Italian Village.

Giant mirror for sun-deprived Italian villageFrom the website:

A sun-deprived village in the Italian Alps has come up with a novel solution to fix the problem - by installing a giant mirror.

The mirror - an eight-by-five metre (26x16ft) sheet of steel - was placed on a nearby peak to reflect sunlight onto Viganella's main square below. The computer-operated mirror will now be constantly following the sun's path.

Viganella sits at the bottom of a steep valley, and surrounding mountains cut off direct sunlight during the winter.

We've made jokes about doing that around here for... forever. There are some communities between mountains where the sun is gone by 3PM, even in the summer. But here, a coal truck would sling a chunk and break it the first day!
