The frescoes created by the master Michelangelo to decorate the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel now look better than ever. The Vatican has finally completed the project to change the lighting system of this monument that tens of thousands of people visit each year. Now not only are the colors much better appreciated, but the system consumes 90% less electricity.

The stained glass windows in the Sistine Chapel are always partially covered so that sunlight does not spoil the frescoes. As a result, many areas of this work of art were always in semi-darkness and were difficult to appreciate. The new lighting is made up of more than 7,000 energy-saving LEDs arranged throughout the ceiling.
