The lighting project for the church of Santa Maria Vergine Assunta in Villarfocchiardo
Light plays an important key-role for the fruition, valorization and organization of the space inside churches.
The sacred architecture needs light to accentuate its symbols and functions.
Several situations can happen in a church: great solemnity and meditation, the prayer as communal ritual action besides the personal and quiet prayer of a single believer, the vision of the church architecture and the fruition of works of art displayed in it.
During the liturgy, space and light inside a church play a key-role. The church lighting shall match with every moment of the liturgy, highlighting the ceremony with great sensitivity.
The main aim of this paper is to show the lighting design process of the church of S. Maria Vergine Assunta in Villarfocchiardo (Torino - Italy).
