In 2023, as part of a major renovation plan for the entire sports complex, strongly supported by the city’s mayor Antonio Decaro and the Councillor for Environment and Sports of the Municipality of Bari, Pietro Petruzzelli, a brand-new lighting system was required to breathe new life into the stadium. A new colour-changing mood was required to highlight the exterior petals of the stadium in bright, saturated hues to reflect the identity of the local, national, or hosted football teams, as needed. Moreover, a remarkable reduction in energy consumption costs was expected by the Bari municipality to align with their sustainability guidelines.
Carried out by the company Edilelettra Srl, the installation of the lighting fixtures was intended to deliver a uniform splash of bright light to the 26 giant petals surrounding the oval structure of the arena. To achieve this, 1 Capital 100, along with 1 Capital 200, both in RGBW color configuration, were installed on two poles located in front of each of the 26 petals. 52 units of Capital 100 were therefore used to highlight the lower part of the petals, while an additional 52 units of Capital 200 tasked with illuminating their upper surfaces. Capital 100 B fixtures, equipped with anti-glare beehive filters, were chosen to provide functional lighting for the service stairs leading the audience to their seats. To complete the lighting scheme, several Capital 300 RGBW units, mounted head-down, enhance the two concrete lift and functional towers of the structure.
