Light for restoration: Alya illuminates a 1500 Convent

A long and accurate restoration project has brought back the the convent of San Martino original beauty. To light the external areas, Alya collection – characterised by an LED luminaire inspired by lanterns’ design – has been chosen.

The dialogue between the convent architecture – now used as an exhibition space – and the elements that illuminate its entrance and cloisters is based on the austerity of the shapes and on the quality of light.

Architecturally, the complex, which dominates the entire hill, represents an unicum, featuring a spectacular wall, unusual for Capuchin architecture. The restoration enhances the original materials, renewing – also through lighting – a strong sense of spirituality.
