L&L Luce&Light, leading the new outdoor lighting project for the Vittoriale degli Italiani

L&L Luce&Light, the Vicenza company specialising in architectural lighting, is one of the key players involved in a new trail of external lighting around the hillside estate known as the Vittoriale degli Italiani, erected by Gabriele d'Annunzio – on of the most famous Italian poets - in Gardone Riviera on Lake Garda.

This new stretch of external lighting, inaugurated in the summer with a celebration entitled “Un immenso desiderio di festa” (a line taken from one of d’Annunzio’s own poems), finally allows visitors to enjoy the architectural elements and some of the footpaths in the poet’s estate not only by day but also by night. This large lighting project concentrates on the walk that leads from the Prioria (priory), d’Annunzio’s home and museum, to the MAS (Museo d'Annunzio Segreto, a museum filled with d’Annunzio’s hitherto unseen personal effects) and the Puglia cruiser, the evocative relic from the Great War.

Made possible thanks to an agreement between the Regione Lombardia e Fondazione Il Vittoriale degli Italiani, the initiative enhances the estate's architectural splendours while fully respecting its original character. A significant number of L&L LED projectors and linear profiles have been installed.

L&L's lighting fixtures in the Vittoriale
The wall-mounted Neva 1.0 linear profile, with a 60-mm pitch and 12°x40° elliptical optics, was integrated into the existing stone walls that line the walks, at approximately 30 cm from the ground. Neva’s ground-skimming light picks out the pathway very atmospherically.

Meanwhile, the same fixture in a different version, with a 120-mm pitch and 45° optics, placed at the base of the arch, together with the Pivot 1.6 projector, lights the intrados and picks out the profile of the archways.

Spot 1.6 and 4.1 outdoor projectors are responsible for lighting the significant architectural elements along the path. The former gives a theatrical prominence to the sculpture of a female figure standing in a small shrine, through a play of backlighting between the statue and the semicircular background of the niche. The latter is used to light the avenue that cuts through the olive trees, thanks to the devices’ ingenious positioning beneath the benches lining the way, from where they generate a light that skims the ground.

Finally, the Siri 1.0 projector lights the imposing entrance to the Vittoriale and the visitors’ entrance that leads to the ticket office.
