Gino Sarfatti Lighting Design for Piedmont Turin Regio Theatre (1973)

Following a tragic fire in 1936, the Piedmont Turin Regio Theatre was redesigned and rebuilt under the direction of renowned architect Carlo Mollino. It reopened in 1973 with dramatic design features including an impressive elliptical interior, glamorous detailing and a cascading pendant lighting fixture by Gino Sarfatti in the centre of the theatre hall.

The entire lighting solution for the theatre was by Sarfatti, now known as a founding father of modern Italian lighting design. We are proud to represent Gino Sarfatti whose work is produced by Astep. The majority of the designs are once again in production as the ‘Le Sfere’ range.
