The temporary exhibition of the painter Carlo Crivelli included a wide range of exhibits all requiring a dedicated lighting solution for their proper appearance to the public. During his career, Carlo Crivelli experimented extensively with his expression of art and the pieces to be exhibited at the Brera Gallery included most of his exemplar works.

From the famous Polyptych from the Camerino Cathedral with three-dimensional inserts and the San Domenico Triptych, to the impressive tapestries, velour pieces, a precious dagger, crowns and arms, each element was studied separately and meticulously for its illumination setup.

Light got integrated in the various showcases, studying cut-off inserts for avoiding the visibility of the lighting fixtures as much as possible. In most cases, the light is provided by adjustable or pre-oriented linear LED lighting fixtures, and in some exhibits like the Velour piece, additional adjustable LED projectors were also installed for increasing the accent light.

About the paintings and the art complexes, they received light from the existing ceiling lighting fixtures with some additional projectors, all focused accordingly. The light sources were dichroic lamps in adjustable projectors, mounted in the tri-phase electrified track installed inside the perimetral moulding. The existing diffuse light component, provided by the linear fluorescent tubes again mounted across the moulding, were switched off, for accentuating the contrast in this temporary setup.
