Design by: Italo Lupi ,Ico Migliore, Mara Servetto Project: Installation for the 150° Anniversary of italian unification Location: Mole Antonelliana / Turin
Together with the accurate intervention of communication signs of the appreciable places of the city architects Lupi, Migliore and Servetto conceived and designed a bright significant installation on the Mole Antonelliana, the main landmark of Torino, first italian capital city.
In this impressive lighting installation, the Italian flag is summarized in three bright rectangular frames with white, red and green LED light (supported by Philips and LucePlan).
These 168 meters long rings, flicking floating on the dome at a height of 80-100 meters, are visible from around the city and the hills around. Enlightened by night, the surface of the rings, 168 meters long, becomes a brilliant Italian flag.
