The Sporting Press Club Turin is one of the most complete sports, play, recreational and cultural structures in Italy. Its undisputed beauty and attractiveness reside in the variety and quality of the services and facilities, in the location in which it is immersed but also in its history that defines it as a historic monument, fully qualifying it as an Architectural Heritage asset.
In 2021 in mid-November, the ATP Nitto Finals will be taking place. For this reason the club has been completely remodernised, following a restoration project that aims to enhance the history of the facilities that date back to the early 1900s.
The new lighting of the Campo Stadio, where cultural, artistic and sporting events are held, was created by us at Arianna with a project designed to make the system more modern and efficient while preserving the vision of its genesis.
The Italian tennis champion Lorenzo Sonego will also be playing in this field, for the ATP Finals, an event that requires perfect lighting to satisfy the audience of fans that support him.
The court was not equipped with light towers for lighting, and was used only during the day. Arianna has designed excellent lighting for flicker-free television shooting with horizontal illuminance of 1000 lux and vertical illuminance of 700 lux. Four 15m light towers were installed around the structure seeking to respect the harmony of the location as far as possible.
For each pole, 6 3-module Petrarcha luminaires with 600 W concentrating and roto-symmetrical optics were installed.
Despite the particularity of the installation and the stringent requirements, we were able to achieve very high levels of illumination (1000 lux horizontal and 700 lux vertical) and uniformity greater than 0.80.
