Manifattura Tabacchi

23/10/2018, Firenze

The event: 

Last summer the ex-Manifattura Tabacchi of Florence reopened its doors to the public with a large program of events that spiced up the Florentine summer. It is an industrial complex of about 100,000 square meters that has been upgraded with the ambition of becoming an alternative meeting space complementary to the historical center, open and connected with the city and the surrounding area. 

As a Technology Partner we have taken care of the architectural lighting of the location and the audio-lighting systems for concerts that have involved thousands of spectators.

The request:              

The client's goal was to create a modern environment in line with the vintage air of space, able to adapt to the different types of events that would be hosted.

Our solution

For the lighting of the main square we have proposed string lights designed for an intensive outdoor use and therefore highly resistant to sun and rain. More than 300 meters of string lights to recreate a starry sky in the square of the clock, the main venue of events.

One of the architectural peculiarities of the former industrial plant that has been highlighted by the lighting project is the clock tower that rises above the square.

For the events we have set up audio-video systems for the and we have offered technical assistance for the DJ sets and concerts.

Final result


The string lights has proved to be the ideal solution for decorating and lighting up the summer nights.

Our AV technicians have managed among the summer events, the Festival au Desert and the Florence Folks Festival, a popular urban festival where tradition and modernity coexist, local and international dimension through music, food and conviviality.
