The Intesa Sanpaolo skyscraper, the new headquarters of the banking group Intesa Sanpaolo in Turin, was designed by architect Renzo Piano. Rising to a height of 167 meters, it stands as the third tallest building in the city, surpassed only by the Piedmont Region Palace (205 meters) and the historic Mole Antonelliana (167.5 meters).

Due to its height, the LUXSOLAR beacons employed for this project are high-intensity white lights at 200,000cd during the day, 20,000cd at dusk, and 2,000cd at night. The lights on this skyscraper flash in synchrony with those on the Piedmont Region Palace, also equipped with LUXSOLAR products.

Given the uniqueness of the structure and the light positioning, LUXSOLAR has additionally provided a system that allows operators to inspect and maintain the lights easily without the need for working at heights. The LUXSOLAR lifting system supplied enables manual lowering, using a patented track and carriage system, of the lights to accessible and safe heights.
