The path of light in the MAAM gardens

The Olivetti industrial city lighting

Project description:

The architectural lighting of the Olivetti area at MAAM (Open-air Museum of Modern Architecture) in Ivrea includes:

  • the pedestrian route (illuminated with LED post lights)
  • the Lombardy poplars in via Jervis
  • the stairway to Talponia
  • the entirety of Via Tupiun
  • 7 information points
  • 3 entrance doors

The objective of this project, dedicated to the Olivetti industrial city, which was declared a UNESCO world heritage site in July 2018, was to rationalise energy consumption and create a functional, easy-to-maintain lighting system. Thanks to a careful analysis of the surrounding architecture, the lighting of the two-kilometre pathway, which runs through the middle of the open-air museum in which the classic Olivetti buildings stand, paved the way for the creation of a genuine lighting tour. The seven information points dotted along the route, providing information regarding the Olivetti culture and its creations, have also been illuminated.

Post-project completion:

  • Total no. of lights: 206
  • Lighting type: LED
  • Total installed capacity: 6.5 kW (compared to the previous 17.3kW)

Energy saving: 62%
