With Elettrosystem light becomes “emotion” :
Among the conditions and tools useful for preserving and enjoying in the best possible way the immense artistic heritage of our cities, an increasingly important role is intended for the lighting of historic buildings.
The ancient palace or the church, in this modern vision of restoration, are no longer seen only as the elegant stage necessary for the preparation of a prestigious exhibition or the celebration of the Sacred Liturgy but become themselves a work of art to be valued. And it is precisely this modern alliance between new technologies and respect for the past that has allowed Elettrosystem, a lighting company in Brugine in the province of Padua, to become a leader in this specific field of the lighting sector.
A know-how gained in thirty years of great experience started in the civil and industrial sector to then privilege the specialization in the study and preparation of lighting for churches and historic buildings. Thirty years during which the Venetian company has been able to pass on the artistic legacy of the past unaltered but at the same time celebrate a new relationship, in perfect balance between historical protection and progress. “Normally – explains Maurizio Buischio, manager of the Venetian company – lighting systems are inserted as elements of novelty in a context that, historically, did not foresee them. This sets in motion a series of objective responsibilities that make it necessary for us to study in depth their insertion both physical, between columns, vaults and ancient capitals, but also of the formal and functional aspect. A further aspect that Elettrosystem takes care of with particular attention is the relationship between natural light and artificial light as it is always necessary to establish a right balance between the two different sources. For this reason, each of our projects is specially examined, developed with appropriate renderings and experimental checks before being carried out with absolute success”. Adequate lighting, historically and technically correct, also means a suitable use of the spaces, a redevelopment of the environments and also of the works of art present.
On the basis of these assumptions, the projects curated by Elettrosystem have the strength of an intense artistic path carried out starting from the study of the historical-architectural aspects up to the function and contemporary usability. In this direction should be read the most recent projects such as the one studied and built for the Cathedral of St. Nicholas of Monaco-Montecarlo, for the Cathedral of Santo Stefano in Pavia with the external lighting of the majestic dome, or, again, the interventions carried out in the cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta in Montagnana (Pd), in the Basilica Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan, in the Cathedral of S. Maria Annunziata in Udine, in the Cathedral of San Giusto in Trieste, in the Church of Saints Philip and James to the Hermits in Padua and in many other important sites. “The many years of experience, the many achievements in the historical monumental field – continues Maurizio Buischio – allow us to propose to the clients innovative plant and lighting solutions and in total respect of the places where we operate. Our proposals aim at the maximum achievable result, therefore we must offer doc solutions for every type of intervention, many times specifically patenting lighting elements that do not exist on the market”. The ideal, therefore, for use in environments of high historical, architectural and artistic value precisely because they fully respect the criteria of conservation and protection. The goal of Elettrosystem is certainly to highlight the details, give shape and thickness to the architectural structures, redevelop the architectural heritage in the utmost respect for their original characteristics, but the lighting curated by the Paduan company inside the churches, beyond the very important technological aspects, is obviously aimed at making the most of the liturgical and spiritual experience.
In a perfect balance of art and history, light becomes harmony between spiritual recollection and artistic vision of the building.
