Rome, new light for the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore
Enel X, through Enel Sole, and Endesa Foundation, the Spanish subsidiary of the Enel Group, have brought a new light to the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore, combining technological innovation and environmental sustainability. The energy-efficient renovation project on the Basilica that hosts the effigy of the Salus Populi Romani, developed under the supervision of the Vatican City, will bring energy savings of up to 80%.
The new sustainable lighting inaugurated by King Juan Carlos of Spain
The solemn inauguration, attended by hundreds of people, was held in the afternoon of Friday, 19 January, before King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia of Spain.
Santa Maria Maggiore, situated on the top of the Esquiline Hill, is considered the largest of the churches dedicated to the Virgin Mary and the only one to have preserved its early Christian structure. A strong bond has existed between the Basilica and the Spanish nation ever since the donations made by the Emperor Charles V in the 16th century and then by his successors to the Spanish crown, who became Honorary Protocanons of the Basilica in 1647.
