“I’ve always thought that lighting artwork is a sort of falsification. So, what I have tried to do with the dome of the Cathedral is to use light with sensitivity and naturalness, considering the light as the last touch of colour from Guercino’s palette. The light in Palazzo Farnese’s exhibition has been thought according to a very simple principle that is to put light exactly where Guercino planned it to be during the execution”.
