DAISALUX, COFME’s specialist in emergency lighting, has illuminated this unique space in Pula, one of Croatia’s historic centers, famous for its Roman ruins.
The Little Roman Theater of Pula (the most populous town on the Croatian peninsula of Istria) was officially opened in the 1st century. It is estimated that it could accommodate an audience of up to 5000 people. In the nineties of the last century and the first years of the current one, numerous cultural events, concerts, presentations, etc. were held in this theater, with a successful operation in terms of demand and public, although with a capacity limited to 300 people. Recently, this space was renovated preserving the remains of Roman construction and within a larger project: the remodeling of the Museum of Archaeology of Istria. This is the largest investment in the cultural sphere in the entire country in the last five years, totaling more than 3 million euros.
The lighting design solution is an essential part of the rehabilitation of the Little Roman Theater in Pula and DAISALUX, because of its international recognition as a lighting manufacturer, was selected for its realization. For this reason, various DAISALUX equipment can be found in the theater, such as the Hydra emergency luminaires or the Zenit Series waterproof emergency floodlights.
The lighting designed by DAISALUX captures the essence of the Roman theater and provides a captivating atmosphere, prioritizing the preservation of the area as archaeological heritage, but also its adaptation to the intended use of the site as a space for cultural events: dance, music, declamations, modern music, visual effects, etc.
The COFME Group consists of seven Spanish leading manufacturers in the field of electrical equipment: CELO, DAISALUX, SACI, SALICRU, SODECA, SOFAMEL and SOLERA.
