As an integral part of this restoring project, the illumination of this monumental area had the purpose of skilfully enhancing through an expert use of colour and light the beauty of these architectural masterpieces, providing tourists and night visitors with a breathtaking visual experience. Entirely developed by the lighting engineer Raffaele Vincelli and Danilo Bettinazzi, Director of Sales & Marketing of lighting manufacturers GRIVEN S.r.l., in cooperation with the local GRIVEN distributor, the lighting scheme aims to enlighten both the street and the façades of the buildings using three different kinds of LED colour changers that have been able to preserve the historical allure of the site owing to their distinctive features: Dune, Dawn and Stroker. The DUNE projector represented the most suitable solution for the specific illumination of the façades of all the buildings of this area, owing to its discrete and functional in-ground presence and to its capability of throwing powerful coloured beams upwards.
Featuring an IP67 protection degree and a 2000 Kg load bearing capacity, besides a 10° moving capability, more than 250 Dune colour changers have been embedded into the pavements and sidewalks of this monumental area. 253 units of GRIVEN's DAWN LED fixtures have been chosen to light up the domes, arcades and minarets. Primarily intended for exterior architectural lighting purposes, DAWN is a high output and high quality IP66 rated colour changer, fitted with the latest cutting edge LED technology. In addition, 28 STROKER units were used to enlighten specific domes at a distance in case this should not be possible from the base of the dome itself for lack of space. Fitted with 36x3W full colour LEDs and designed for refined professional use, STROKER is a super flux and high luminance colour changer for exterior and interior use that incorporates state of the art electronic colour mixing and high reliability, meaning powerful, uniform and effective colour rendering and minimal maintenance. STROKER's environmental impact is really small with no ultraviolet radiation and infrared emanation, an exceptionally low power consumption and a drastically reduced maintenance requirement.
