Introduzione

The world is built from light, which is an integral element of nature and of vital importance to human existence. The Light is to individuals essential in order to comprehend the space and movement. In addition, it defines the space, brings out the colors, discovers the complex details of texture and form, and has the power to dramatically transforms the atmosphere of any external or internal space.[1]
The Light therefore, creates in real time a subjective perception of the environment in which we live and is the primary instrument of optical information at our disposal. Thus, the “lighting” of an area, is a result of conscious human intervention and a means of information and communication. The lighting is ultimately a means of human expression and culture.[2]
