Viganella is a small town in the Italian Apls. It is located in a valley between very steep mountains. The mountains are so steep that from November the village ends up in the shade for the rest of the winter. So Mayor Pierfranco Midali promised to bring sunshine to the small town.
Mr. Midali is going to place a giant mirror on one slope that will reflect the sun down to the town. This mirror will relfect enough sunshine to allow five hours of daylight in the winter. That is five hours more than they had before.
