To mark World Autism Awareness Day, on the night of 2 April the Palazzo dei Normanni in Palermo was lit up in blue: the colour which signifies solidarity and affinity with people living with disabilities.
The Palazzo, a UNESCO world heritage site, was built in 1130 at the request of the King of Sicily, Roger II, and over the years it has served important official roles.
Indeed, it was once the seat of the oldest parliament in Europe and is today the seat of the Sicilian Regional Assembly.
Considering the building's incredible historical and cultural importance, the work was undertaken so as to fully respect the architectural heritage. The project’s aim was to showcase the beauty of the building’s façade during the hours of darkness.
For the Palazzo's temporary illumination 80 LED spotlights were installed on the ground floor and the balconies so as to create a perfectly uniform illumination across the entire façade.
