"M'illumino di Meno" ("I light up less") is the National Day of Energy Saving and Sustainable Lifestyles that is organized annually since 2005 to spread the culture of environmental sustainability and saving resources. The first edition was held on February 16, 2005 ,when, on the occasion of the entry into force of the Kyoto Protocol ,Caterpillar Radio had the idea of ​​asking listeners to turn off all unnecessary lights as a gesture of attention to the environment.

At the heart of "M'illumino di meno" 2023 were two themes of growing importance in the global panorama:
