Sperlonga rise up on a rocky spur protruding into the Tyrrhenian Sea. Due to its location, during the Roman Empire, in the area many villas were built, the most famous is the one belonging to the Roman Emperor Tiberius. The villa included a grotto decorated with sculptures portraying episodes of the life of the Homer’s hero Odysseus.
Across more than 25 years there has been a succession of lighting and urban design projects for Sperlonga, adopting Neri products, such as lanterns, brackets, and various types of lampposts, as well as furnishing elements such as benches, bollards, bicycle racks, bins and kiosks.
A few years ago, Sperlonga has adopted the Alcor system to light residential areas and new developments, as well as the widespaces of Piazza Cardi.
A gradual upgrade has been carried out on older lampposts.
The discharge lighting fixtures have been replaced with LED
ones; significant savings have been made and the quality
of the surroundings during night time improved.
Fenice - Castore system
On the Castor system posts, the old ‘Light 800’ without optic have been substituted by ‘Light 803’ or ‘Light 804’ equipped with Fortimo LEDs.
Fenice - Sheliak system
The same lighting fixture replacement has occurred for the Sheliak system.
Fenice - Tabit system
In the end, the replacement of lanterns has been extended to the waterfront, where the Tabit system is.
Fenice - Orginal arms
LED ‘Light 804’ lanterns were fitted on the original bracketsin the narrow lanes of the old quarter.
On the provincial road, the roundabout at the entrance to Sperlonga was furnished and lit using the Avior system.

Neri kiosks have been also adopted as different sizes cafes and positioned in the most significant places in the town.
