Light for Future, light for the environment

Light for Future is a public lighting project conceived to raise awareness about the environment and sustainability

Promoted by iGuzzini and the Municipality of Recanati, in collaboration with the International Association of Lighting Designers IALD, the Fine Arts Academy in Macerata and the Adriatic Electricity Company DEA, Light for Future is part of the cultural program of the Marche region for the 2021-2023 triennium.


Under the artistic direction of Giancarlo Basili, Light for Future involved four internationally renowned lighting design studios. Arup, Licht Kunst Licht, Light Bureau and Speirs Major created several concepts for sets located in significant places across Recanati thanks to iGuzzini Palco InOut Framer floodlights.


Light to improve the environment

Light for Future has chosen different places in the town of Recanati: the Cloister of St. Augustin, the Cloister of Palazzo Venieri, the aqueduct tower, Porta San Filippo, the Multisala Sabbatini cinema, the Convent of the Poor Clares, Beniamino Gigli’s home.

For each place, the designers identified a concept dedicated to a theme related to environmental sustainability. Carbon, air, water, fire in various forms draw sceneries and foster reflection in a dreamlike dimension. There is also an appeal to save the bees, with a large bee by Arup at Porta San Filippo. The project involves Recanati’s places linked to the lives of the city’s illustrious figures, from Giacomo Leopardi to Beniamino Gigli.


Palco InOut floodlights with gobos, high performance fixtures that integrate harmoniously with the landscape, are used throughout the project. The abundant supply of optical accessories allows the Placo InOut floodlights to create many different, customized and dynamic lighting settings.

Light for Future will continue in 2022 and 2023, with new installations and other creative solutions, in different places of the town. A further reason to include the Marche region in tourist itineraries.
