In Italy plenty of art exhibitions take place each year exposing thousands of artworks, hosting millions of visitors aiming to broaden their culture through the direct observation of paintings, drawings, sculptures, lit by artificial or natural light. Light for art exhibits is mainly used to lit artifacts but it also absolves other functions, as to provide optimal visual conditions for security, way finding, captions’ and introductive graphics’ reading, accentuate entrance banners, bookshops, ticket offices and so on. During the course of my lectures, I have realized how difficult it becomes for a student or an interior designer to approach a lighting design project through the reading of textbooks and manuals which are basically optical physics’ essays with the capacity of discouraging more then attracting the inexperienced ones. This is the reason why I chose to write this brief treatise aiming to sort out and systematize what one should know about when lighting a painting by Raphael, a drawing by Leonardo, an artwork by Warhol or Damien Hirst’s skull.
