presente per ricomporre con luce di qualità uno spazio dinamico, un percorso filologico di interazione di ambiti luminosi e di esperienze percettive. Spazi somatici (personali e di individuazione della posizione del proprio corpo), espositivi-museali, socio- relazionali, emozionali, di rappresentazione vengono scanditi con architetture di luce in cui il soggetto esperisce il contorno luminoso. Qui sta il legame e il pensiero condiviso tra storico e fisico: il concetto di luce come formante fisico e plastico dell’architettura.

Light as a plastic formant of Architecture Thought exchange between a technical physicist and an architectural historia F or an Architectural Historian, to talk about light and illumination means to talk about Vitruvius and his De Architectura. For Vitruvius, the correct building orientation and positioning to best capture the solar radiation are the cornerstones of any project: the functional distribution of the interior spaces is linked to light and the “opening’s light”, i.e. the light coming from doors/ windows (“lumen” defines their width). The historian insists on Western culture: light is in the Prometheus myth, of a symbolic imagery; from the (natural) light made of shadow and darkness of the Middle Ages, to the Renaissance’s “Painting of light” made by light and colour, shapes and “aerial perspectives”, up to the artificial light of the second half of the nineteenth century, from which came the explosion of luminous architectures and artistic and pictorial expressions of the Modern and the Avant- gardes. On this background enters the technical physicist, who refers to Relativity and quantum Nello Baroni, cinema teatro Rex, Firenze, via Nazionale 1937 / Nello Baroni, Rex theater, Florence, via Nazionale 1937 30 LUCE 325 / TERZA PAGINA mechanics. The technical physicist shows how the space that is represented, lived and built today, and all the techniques and technologies, would be unthinkable without a reflection on the extraordinary physical properties of light, its independence from the observer’s reference system, and its propagation velocity through a vacuum. The link and communication between the historian and the physicist lies in light and in its ability to transmit information, connecting subjects with different formae mentis and approaches. Light sets in motion semiotic processes, even if it does not belong to any signification system: it is not a “text”, it is “imponderable” matter, and its sub-signedness directs actions, contributes to the communication/transmission of thoughts, feelings, and sensations, to the circadian rhythm, and to the choices of taking action. As Peirce would say, light is a representamen, a sign th B&GV6W2FR֖BbFP&V6Vfr7V&V7BWVfVB6vVF&W&W6VFFFV&WGvVV6V6&ƗGB6vFƖvB26V`6V6F&WGvVVGv7V&V7G0vFFffW&VB7VGW&RBwVvR&V6֖pFW'&WFBbFRf'7BG&6֗GFV@FFRGFW"ƖvBvfW26R6V6RBVrF&V7G2B76W3B6W'0FVvƖvFr6G&7BB'&vFW72FRFwVR&WGvVVFR7F&@FR667BVG2&6FFR&VFrbFPVrb&6FV7GW&’f&G0WFƖR&V6W6RFRWRFRǒVffV7FfP6G&7B6V6"FWFV7G2f6V66ҐFRVFGbƖvBFBfG2CFRfVPbF26Rf&RG2f&FfR6FVBƖW2FRVƗGbFRG&6֗GFVB6V6FVBƖvBखbvR&VfV7BFRWfWFfW"FRbFP&VF6&WGvVVƖvBB&6FV7GW&RvRf6RfW'G&wVrVW7FV֖FV@&6FV7GW&RBV֖Fr&6FV7GW&Rv6FRƖvFrfVB&VfW'2FFP&VF6&WGvVVFW6vrƖvB@FW6vrvFƖvBखbvRBFR&VF6&WGvVV&6FV7GW&RVvVW&rBFW6vvF6V֖F2FW'&WFFbFV"FW&7FvR6FVGV6RfW'66RƖ&WGvVVFPFVGV7FfR&6&62b&6FV7GW&sFR7F&( 26FFRGV7FfRR&6RbFVƖr@VvVW&rWW&VFFFR667N( 06FBFR&GV7FfRRv6FW6vBƖvFrFW6v&R&6VCFW&F66Ɩ'&W7VBƖvFrFW6v2BFR6RFW6vbƖvFr77FV2"&GV7G2'WBFRvPbFW6R66WGV6F27F&B667BFW&Vf&RB2FR&W7V@
