The renewal of the artistic lighting system of the Basilica of San Giovanni in Laterano is yet another step of Acea’s plan to add value to the monuments and historic and artistic heritage of the territory.The intervention on the Arcibasilica involved the renovation of the existing lighting system and the replacement of 106 light projectors strategically positioned to add value to the 18th century architecture of the main façade and the 16 statues above it. The project involved also the northern façade of the Basilica, the two Medieval bell towers, the portico and the arcaded loggia with sacred image frescoes.

106 new light projectors pointing at the church’s facades and its two bell towers add value to one of the symbols of the Capital

The work carried out by Acea was completed with the support of the City of Rome and the Infrastructure and Services Directorate of the Governorate of the Vatican City State.

It has been an honor for us to complete the artistic lighting project for one of the most prestigious and oldest religious buildings in the world. As part of the wide project to bring value to the historic and artistic heritage of the Capital we started a while ago, this intervention, aimed at highlighting the architecture of the Basilica, plays a very important role. Acea was born in Rome over a century ago and there could be no better occasion to strengthen its bond with the city.

Basilica of San Giovanni in Laterano

It is the oldest church in the West and was the Papal residence for over 1000 years. The Basilica of San Giovanni is the first of the major Papal Basilicas (the others are the Basilica of Saint Peter in the Vatican City, Saint Paul’s Basilica outside the walls, and the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore).
The final part of its name “in Laterano” derives from the noble Laterani family, who owned the land on which the Basilica was built.
