A long, complicated project, that involved specialized teams in every phase: design, installation, maintenance, tele-control. All because, for the first time in Acea, a functional lighting system was used for artistic purposes: in this way two different ways of conceiving and designing lighting were integrated. “Even if, for us, we only ever have one goal: to ensure the quality of our lighting” explains Cristina.
The installation is also visible during the day. A decision that called for an additional change to the system, which was anything but simple. “Usually public lighting systems are not switched on during the day. For the installation in Piazza del Popolo we made an exception and the system is always on.”
Ai nati oggi, for Acea, was a successful opportunity to experiment with new solutions: from the wireless control of the system to the management of the dimming function that enables the intensity of the light to be calibrated at any time. “Solutions that we are also capable of applying to the new lighting designs we are working on in Rome” explains Cristina.
“If you happen to spend an evening in Piazza del Popolo, stop for a moment and wait for the light to pulsate. It’s definitely worth it.”
