LIGHT SEEN THROUGH THE HISTORY OF ART, OF THE CINEMA, OF ARCHITECTURE
A journey through the arts and artists, that, fascinated by the light they gave a personal interpretation of it, sometimes studying the effects on illuminated objects and spaces, sometimes studying the fundamentals of physics and visual perception.
Years go by, the decades, and more and more arts, sciences, disciplines are contaminated in a continuous cross-reference of more or less sought-after quotations. Marco Frascarolo's voice is that of a designer of light in architecture, passionate about cinema, photography, contemporary art, who has always tried to permeate their projects with what their own, more satiated, curiosity absorbs every day from every direction. The image chosen to represent this path is the "Arc Lamp" by Giacomo Balla del 1909 which definitively resolves the eternal struggle between art and science, in timeless harmony.
Marco Frascarolo, engineer, lighting designer, lighting Lecturer at the Department of Architecture of Rome and the Master in Lighting Design of Sapienza University of Rome, coordinates the 2001 the study Fabertechnica which he founded.
Among the most important works includes the design for the new LED lighting system of the Sistine Chapel in the consortium LED4ART, the coordination of Marco Frascarolo of the working group of the Master in Lighting Design, University "La Sapienza", for the preparation of the guidelines of the new lighting system for the Colosseum (2015) and the project for the new lighting system for the Basilica of San Francesco in Assisi.
Since 2018 Marco Frascarolo follows as coordinator the "Jubilee of Light" project promoted by A.N.C.I. and by the Ministry of the Environment MATTM, that interests 17 Italian Municipalities and has recently been extended to others 33. The founding idea of the project is to use light as a flywheel to bring out and tell places, to enhance the territory and its multiple resources.
