The G8, with the heads of state and government of the leading industrialised countries meeting in L'Aquila from 8 to 10 July, will be entirely held inside the Inspectors School of the Italian Financial Police in Coppito.
All of the world leaders will stay and work inside the barracks that has been restored for the occasion with the aim of offering the Big Eight decorous, but certainly not luxurious, hospitality, in line with the decision to hold a summit as essential, simple and as close to the hardships of the people of Abruzzo as possible.
The barracks facilities have been altered from a functional viewpoint, above all by intervening on the accommodations appointed to host the heads of state and government - with adaptation of the plumbing and electrical systems - and on the work areas that will host the conferences and meetings.
The L'Aquila G8 venue will be entirely made in Italy, from the furnishings to the electric cars with which the heads of state will travel in, up till the catering.
And in representing Made in Italy quality, Plana was a must. Here it was chosen in the white snow Reflex version.
Designed and produced entirely in Italy, the Plana series is distinguished by clean and soft lines, depicting the extreme essentials of minimalist design for original living and wide freedom of choice.
The buttons – in light white or Silver add a touch of technological brilliance – and are available in various sizes to meet all requirements. Elegant laser-engraved symbols represent the various functions. Silent, soft-touch button action. It is possible to choose from four premium materials and 37 different colours for the cover plates.
Thanks to the transparent honeycomb mounting frame and the Plack-clack front fixing system patented by Vimar, the Plana series offers excellent strength and easy installation.
Discreet by day, illuminated at night thanks to the backlit buttons with soft light and low power consumption. As evening falls, a slender ring of light becomes discernible and the Plana buttons automatically become visible. The symbol remains visible throughout the night, easy to find and attractive to look at.
Plana is available for comfort, security, energy saving and emergency lighting devices.
