Total Building Solutions for World Heritage Site
Vatican City State
Vatican City is the world’s smallest sovereign state. It has an area of 0.44 square kilometers and a population of just under 1,000 inhabitants. The Vatican possesses unique cultural artifacts and has been recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1984.
Cultural treasures and works of art that are accessible to the public in the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel must be protected against theft, vandalism, fire, and harmful influences from the environment. All systems are networked via the Desigo building automation and control system.
You will find Total Building Solutions (including Desigo) in virtually all buildings in the Vatican City, from the Palazzo Pontificale and St. Peter’s Basilica, to the Domus Sanctae Marthe guest house, the Vatican Museums and Libraries, and even the train station and heliport
