The Basilica of the Holy Sepulchre is one of the main churches in Barletta, Apulia, and owes its name to the relationship that has linked this building with the Holy Land since ancient times. The church stands on the ruins of the mediaeval basilica and has been a strategic crossroads and a transit point for pilgrims to the Holy Land ever since. The current building is the result of numerous architectural and stylistic transformations that followed one another from its foundation in the eleventh century until the second half of the twentieth century.

Most recently, the Basilica was the subject of a lighting project aimed at bringing out both the architectural elements that characterise the building and its decorations, such as the as frescoes around the baptismal font. The area of the presbytery was also exalted, with an accent light on the crucifix and the altar.

Projectors for indoor applications, with a white light and 40° optics, were chosen to light the aisles, positioned on the half-pillars of the central aisle.

The crucifix suspended in the presbytery is lit with Ginko 2.0 projectors with 3000K white light and 17° optics. Finally, Ginko 3.0 projectors, with 12°x64° optics adjustable through 360° with a magnet, are directed on the baptismal font and the frescoes.
