Architectural Lighting

A sustainable way to preserve city heritage

A Lasting Legacy that Saves Energy

Every city, large or small, has its own artistic and architectural heritage that is unique, priceless, and worthy of illumination. Architectural lighting has embellished many cultural, historical and artistic landmarks and landscapes, both in Italy and abroad. Enel X Global Retail offers cities solutions for permanent and temporary architectural lighting, and also partners with them on every step of their implementation — from project design to financing (including the construction phase), from sourcing materials to installation, from construction project coordination to building maintenance.


Over 30 years, Enel X has developed over 2,000 architectural lighting projects, generating substantial savings up to 70% for its public and private clients. Some examples include: Rome’s Pantheon, the Pompeii archeological site, the lakeside promenade of the town of Stresa and the Royal Alcázar in Seville.
