By completing the new artistic lighting system in Piazza del Popolo, Acea has delivered the light architecture project involving the obelisk in the center of the piazza.

It used six new latest generation LED light projectors and precision optics that improve the color rendering and reduce consumption, as they do not exceed 300W.

The work also involved the maintenance of the lighting around the Fountain of the Lions, consisting of four basins at the base of the obelisk, and two further fountains located on the sides of the square: the Fountain of the Goddess Rome and the Fountain of Neptune.
Again, the old lights (twenty for each fountain) were replaced by forty immersion LED floodlights.

The new systems, which complete the recent LED transformation of the streetlamps in the square, are equipped with a remote control which allows the lighting to be managed more quickly and efficiently.

The project carried out by Acea, was conceived in collaboration with the City of Rome - Simu Department.

“Again our work centered on ensuring innovation and sustainability at the same time, which determined the choice of LED technology. These latest generation projectors reduce consumption, have an excellent color rendering and, with minimal aesthetic impact, increase the precision of the optics and enhance the architecture of monuments and fountains. This work was carried out with professionalism, competence and dedication by our technicians and, in this regard, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the Acea people who, even throughout the COVID-19 emergency period, continued to guarantee the safety and efficiency of the services provided to the community and the local area,” said Acea's Operational Director Giovanni Papaleo.
