Basilica is latest Rome landmark to be newly illuminated.
Rome's Basilica of St John Lateran, or S. Giovanni in Laterano, has been illuminated with a new light system, inaugurated by the city's mayor Virginia Raggi on the night of 14 October.
The façade and two bell towers have been illuminated with 106 new floodlights following ten days of work by the capital's multi-utility ACEA.
The basilica is the latest Rome monument to be lit up with new lights and comes one month after the Trevi Fountain was newly illuminated.
The new lighting system follows similar projects at Castel S. Angelo, the Theatre of Marcellus, Rome's Synagogue, the Palatine Hill, the Pyramid of Cestius and Porta di S. Paolo, Piazza del Campidoglio and the Castle at S. Severa.
