Giant New Year moon installation in Rome's Giardino degli Aranci.
Rome's Orange Garden on the Aventine hill rings in the new year with Museum of the Moon, a giant installlation by British artist Luke Jerram.
The moon, which is suspended in mid-air and illuminated from within, will light up the belvedere of the Giardino degli Aranci from midnight on New Year's Eve until 15.30 on New Year's Day.
Jerram's sculpture is a faithful replica of the original lunar landscape and is based on detailed imagery taken by NASA space agency.
For those who miss the spectacle the first time round, the moon installation will be illuminated once more on the evening of 1 January, from 20.00-21.00. Entry is free.
