Light on the Pietà

The Fabbrica di San Pietro has chosen iGuzzini to update the lighting of one of the world’s most famous works of art, the Pietà by Michelangelo, located in the Chapel of the Crucifix inside St. Peter’s Basilica.

The new lighting system designed by the studio Rossi Bianchi lighting design improves the viewing of the Renaissance masterpiece thanks to innovative solutions based on the latest developments in LED technology.

The project offers the possibility of simple, intuitive programming of four different lighting scenarios to adapt to different viewing conditions.

The individual scenarios are made by using compact solutions in warm white tones (equal to 3000 K) for extraordinary chromatic accuracy and perception of details.
