Who we are
The Fabbrica dei Lumi is a company of artisans of light that for three generations has been dedicated to the art of illuminations, luminous architectures typical of Southern Italy.
We design and create lighting sets for patronal celebrations, large events and weddings.
We sell and rent our works to public, ecclesiastical and private entities.
We bring the design and the ancient tradition of illuminations into homes with productions, including customized ones, of light works for interiors and exteriors.
History of the illuminations
The history of the “parazioni” lights began a long time ago.
It was born from the coexistence of the sacred and the profane, of Christianity and paganism.
We can still find all this today in the patronal feasts: each town has its own patron saint who is celebrated and venerated by all citizens.
While retaining some peculiarities, each country has a characteristic that unites these rites:
The term derives from the Latin "lumen", which literally means "object that diffuses light",
but in a broader sense it serves to indicate the feast of lights.
Wooden poles, iron wires, stairs, lamps are used to build, to "mount the party".
The "paratori" incessantly repeat the same movements, struggle, using the eye to measure, transforming the spaces into large luminous scenographies in honor of the Saint.
Our showroom is located in Puglia, on the tree-lined courses of the beautiful medieval old town of Ruvo di Puglia. A place dedicated to the design of indoor and outdoor lighting. Modern lines and traditional works for your home, your office, your commercial space.
