Fluorescent lighting system for Rome city hall and Capitoline Museums.
Rome's Piazza del Campidoglio, seat of city hall and the Capitoline Museums, is now illuminated at night with a LED lighting system.
The fluorescent lights, which are environmentally-friendly and cost-efficient, were switched on for the first time on 26 September by the city's mayor Virginia Raggi.
The ongoing installation of LED lighting on Rome's streets, replacing the softer glow of existing sodium street lights, has been the subject of controversy in the past, with critics describing the white glare as the "morgue effect."
