The Sala della Sacrestia is located inside the Vicolo Valdina Complex, which consists of a former convent of the Benedictine nuns of S. Maria in Campo Marzio, the adjoining church dedicated to S. Gregorio Nazianzeno, a Romanesque bell tower and a cloister 16th century with a fountain in the center. Originally the convent refectory room, now mainly used for conferences and art exhibitions, it is characterized by a large vault with a series of eighteenth-century frescoes and, in the background, the painting of the Cenacle of sixteenth-century origin. For the new system we studied custom lighting fixtures, handcrafted to perform three different lighting tasks: The enhancement of the architecture thanks to the fixtures positioned on the candelabra, aimed at lighting the vaults and for reflection, providing diffused lighting in the room , the enhancement of the frescoes by means of fixtures installed on a vertical structure in the window compartments near the end walls that also guarantee functional lighting on the speakers’ table and finally a system of special floor lamps, aimed at integrating functional lighting of the Hall and wired for emergency in order to guarantee minimum illuminance in the event of a power failure.
