Lighting of the Two Towers
Bologna, Italy

In short

The Two Towers are the symbol of Bologna, its most famous monument, and a visual reference point for its inhabitants. In spite of this they’ve never been lit at night, and their top disappears in the darkness at the dusk. The sudden awareness of this paradoxical situation during an evening promenade gave us the spark to find a way to resolve it. Once presented the idea to the Municipality and obtained a green light, we’ve coordinated the whole operation finding in ASCOM (The local merchant’s association) a sponsor able to present to the city this new night view. The realised project is less courageous than the first idea, widely censored by the superintendency, but the main goal has been reached: the two towers now glow in the skyline of the city.
