Upgrading work was carried out on the lighting of Florence Cathedral and Piazza San Giovanni thanks to the initiative and support of the Florence Chamber of Commerce, which promoted a project for improving liveability in the historic – artistic centre of Florence.
iGuzzini contributed by making available the best technical solutions for achieving the aims set by the promoter and designers. The project brought several challenges which iGuzzini had to handle after a rigorous comparison of the performancen of its luminaires: from increasing lighting levels
to more even lighting of the huge surfaces of the Cathedral; from improved colour rendering to, last but not least, the requirement not to add new installation points, therefore using existing ones, by replacing existing luminaires. To underline the
magnificent facades of the Florentine architecture of the Cathedral, bell tower and baptistery, Maxiwoody floodlights were selected, whilst for the squares and pedestrian areas, Delphi wall-mounted luminaires were used with energy saving lamps.
The project involved the Government Office, the Florence Chamber of Commerce and City Council, Silfi, Opera del Duomo, Illum Srl for lighting design and Tecnoengineering Srl for electrical design.
