Corriere Adriatico – 24 April 2019

The company collaborated on the project with the well-known physicist Paco Lanciano

The golden bronzes of Pergola in a new light. The only and largest existing gilded bronze sculpture dating back to Roman times is, in fact, in the Marche region, in Pergola, which has dedicated a museum to these finds.

The collaboration with Paco Lanciano. Effetto Luce had the honour of collaborating on this project with the famous physicist Paco Lanciano, former consultant for the well-known television programmes Quark and Superquark and curator, together with Piero Angela himself, of the permanent installation of the Domus Romane in Palazzo Valentini, the Forum of Augustus and the Forum of Caesar. The bronzes are on permanent display in a room of the Museum of Gilded Bronzes in Pergola, which for the occasion has been restored and set up with a multimedia system that tells the story of the statues and their genesis. The mayor of Pergola, Francesco Baldelli, gave a precise imprint to the display, explaining “I wanted high value, international scope but also attention to the territory. This is why we involved Paco Lanciano with his team and Effetto Luce, a local excellence with strong experience in museum lighting, with many high level references also in the international field”. The installation has already met with a great deal of approval and, like all great results, what worked well was the synergy of the working group: the municipal administration, the technicians of the Municipality of Pergola, the superintendence and all those who contributed. “Italy has the greatest artistic and cultural heritage in the world and the Marche region is no less than other regions, explained Vanni Elisei, director of Effetto Luce, during the presentation of the new installation. We just have to do things well and, above all, communicate them even better. This project of excellence will do a great deal of good to our territory”.

The archistar Ambasz bewitched by Recanati: “It’s enchanting”.

One of the world’s greatest archistars, Emilio Ambasz, president of the Mudeum of modern art in New York from 1969 to 1976, was a guest at Effetto Luce, Vanni Elisei’s leading lighting design company. The Argentinean architect, on a visit together with his Italian colleague Fabio Mariani, who is passionate about Lorenzo Lotto’s work, travelled the various places in the Marche region (Macerata, Cingoli, Monte San Giusti, Loreto, Ancona, Jesi), dedicating a more in-depth visit to Recanati from which the famous architect was literally kidnapped, describing the city as “a container of history of inestimable value and Piazza Leopardi as a place that bewitches us with its charm, an enchanting square”. Architect, designer, teacher, author of numerous publications and award-winning for his work, Ambasz, is one of the leading names in contemporary architecture and design.
