LED public urban lighting of Castello Square

The new LED public urban lighting of Castello Square was an urban redevelopment project aimed at enhancing the important historical area of ​​the Castle of Copertino, a 13th-century fortified architecture that constitutes the oldest nucleus of the Apulian city. The new square was inaugurated in September 2019 and the project was designed by architect Pierpaolo Papi, who awarded the minimalism of the MOD 2.0 URBAN 200 series on RX pole. The series, specifically designed by AEC Illuminazione for street lighting, has in fact guaranteed high performance and visual comfort for citizens while enhancing the architecture of the Angevin Castle without impacting the architectural context.
