LINEA LIGHT

The Wignacourt Museum, a UNESCO heritage site in Rabat on the island of Malta, is housed in a building that was once a baroque residence for the Chaplains of the Knights of Malta. Inaugurated in the early 17th century, it brings together hundreds of historical artifacts related to the history of the Order of Malta, as well as works of art by painters such as Mattia Preti, Antoine Favray and Francesco Zahra.

A unique historical complex, which develops on three different levels, restored to glory after a meticulous restoration and recently reopened to the public, where light plays a key role in the museum's display of structures and artifacts.The solution, designed to both respect and enhance the prestigious architectural context into which the objects are placed, saw the use of the Point and Matrix tracking articles that, with harmonised halogen and fluorescent lighting, result in a level of ambience lighting suitable for creating just the right contrasts with the accent lighting on the various historical artifacts and paintings. Tape path-markers have also been installed to guide visitors; the strips are mounted noninvasively to highlight the steps of several internal stairways, allowing visitors a clear vision of the spaces without straining their eyes.
