Conceived by ENEL X
Architectural Lighting Team - an ENEL Group
company that provides innovative products and services focused on energy transition - the lighting design was meant to deliver coloured and white light flood light effects with a perfectly smooth transition and uniform distribution to all the walls overlooking the villa’s courtyard. Inscribed into an oval perimeter, the villa’s geometry presents recurrent semicircular shaped elements in its gardens, general structure, and decorative features. The most important of these features, the main hemicycle, has been enhanced with the help of an array of Capital 100 in RGBW colour configuration fitted with elliptical optics. Owing to a perfect positioning and aiming, the chosen floodlights allow an even, harmonious distribution of both coloured and white light on the surface of the villa’s central body creating a deep visual and emotional impact.
The same architectural analogy is repeated in the Nymphaeum, where everything combines to create charm and mystery, such as the four caryatids that support the balcony and the beautiful Roman mosaic floor with Triton, also featuring a semicircular shape. The upper levels of the Nymphaeum walls have been enhanced by units of Capital 100 RGBW which deliver a magical atmosphere to this enchanted place. The lower stage is illuminated by Micro-Clip MC in RGBW color configuration, installed around the mosaic, which complete the wall wash distribution. The overlapping effects produced by the silhouettes of arches and porches of the loggia and Nympheum create a pleasant alternation of hues and shapes with different depth and intensity, enhancing the artistic and historical value of the villa in a superb way. To complete the lighting scheme, some units of Capital 100 RGBW, installed on three sides of the square garden located beyond the Nymphaeum, deliver a new character to the historical fountain in red porphyry decorating its center.
All of the fixtures are controlled via a wireless DMX system using DMX receivers and repeaters. Installed in strategical points of the villa’s outdoor areas, they allow a seamless management of the whole lighting installation without the need of a dedicated cable line.
