Located in Livorno, the Bottini dell’Olio facility was built in the 17th century for the purpose of storing the olive oil that came from maritime trade.
The building, including the Luogo Pio little church, was recently renovated and transformed into a cultural space that hosts the Museum of the City and The Labronica Library.
The lighting layout in the exhibition rooms of the Museum of the City is based on a multi-purpose canalization system, designed to conceal the electrical system and to integrate both linear translucent surface mounted luminaires and a track for spotlights.
