Description:

Emilia Romagnas 2003 code specified the correct orientation of buildings external lighting systems - to be lit from above, aside from monuments - and street lighting. The code further established technical standards for efficiency, distance and light flow regulation to reduce noctural light pollution and improve energy efficiency. In reducing light pollution, Emilia Romagna sought to protect research activities of astromonical observatories and properly illuminate historic city centers.
