Mausoleum of Galla Placidia, Ravenna, Italy, first half of 5th century AD

The story of an early Christian cross-shaped funeral monument is linked to the empress Galla Placidia, daughter of Theodosius, regent of the Western Roman Empire who commissioned it for her son Valentinian III.
The Mausoleum was included in the list of Italian heritage sites of humanity by UNESCO in 1996.


Mausoleum of Galla Placidia, DZE project, 2017

DZ Engineering has designed and built the internal lighting system of the Mausoleum, a UNESCO heritage site, commissioned by the Archdiocese of Ravenna and Cervia.
The intent was to enhance the mosaics of the dome, of the central lunettes, of the barrel vaults and of the lateral lunettes to allow a suitable material, constructive and artistic analysis, through the installation of the patented Digilux® VM 3000 proprietary management system (which modifies and optimizes the lighting levels according to the changing daylight).

Jewish Synagogue, Pisa, Italy, 1647

The building, purchased in 1647 and first restored in 1785, was completely renovated in the 1860s. Although the works were begun in the period of the emancipation of the Jews, the Pisan Synagogue has strongly maintained the conventional Jewish prerogatives of modesty and sobriety, without clearly distancing itself from the urban context. The traditional location of the upstairs hall of worship has also been respected on the interior, which is accessed by a large and elegant staircase, which has replaced the seventeenth-century staircase.


Jewish synagogue, DZE project, 2015

DZ Enginering carried out a lighting intervention to enhance the interior of the newly restored Synagogue and to improve the lighting during religious functions. In addition to the design and production of custom-made lighting fixtures, using only warm LED lights, the company, in collaboration with an expert in the sector, has restored the historic chandeliers of the Temple so that are now fully functional.
