Florence – The installation of copper cables on the tower and main facade of the Palazzo Vecchio provides an opportunity to see the work of the SAEET technicians as they descend from the tower to finish the building’s new lightning protection system.
There will be a helmet web cam on one of the technicians that will record the entire operation from the wall. This footage will be available to you for publishing.
The start of the operation is scheduled for Wednesday, September 16 at 11 a.m. in Piazza Della Signoria. You will be able to shoot your own video as well as use the images broadcast by the technicians suspended on the wall.
My colleagues with the press and television are invited to a 11 a.m. press conference (in front of the statue of David), followed by the descent of the technicians.
