The light in the plate

2014, 1 December

During the past years I had the lucky chance to illuminate some restaurants.
This film tells the thoughts and ideas I developed on occasion of those extraordinary experiences.
I’ve always thought that making light and making lamps is not an exact science, but at the same time I’ve always been looking for a method.
By looking the painting “La Cena in Emmaus – Dinner in Emmaus” by Caravaggio, I realized which light was the best to be used in a restaurant.
I realized that light in the plate is the most beautiful one.
The light which makes us the unique guest in the restaurant, the light which makes us live a multisensory authentic experience, but above all the light which turns the table into a place to meet and to love.

Enjoy the show.
