Faro del'Isola Razzoli (Arcipelago della Maddalena)

Faro del'Isola Razzoli (Arcipelago della Maddalena)



The old Razzoli island lighthouse, built in 1843, stands on a rock that falls sheer to the sea. Near is the new lighthouse.

Razzoli lighthouse is one of the last to have been inhabited and guarded. Before the advent of electricity, the big acetylene lamp required the work of many people so in the building lived three families. In 1969, due to damage on the perimeter of the lighthouse, it was difficult to keep staff on site, the building was declared as no longer habitable. It is currently abandoned.
A solar panel system automatically runs the new Razzoli lighthouse: another tower in front of the N face of the old building. It was built in 1974. Its white light has a range of 13 miles. A red light at low speeds, indicates the danger of Lavezzi.
L'ancien phare de l'île Razzoli, construit en 1843, s'élève sur un rocher qui tombe à pic sur la mer. A côté se trouve le nouveau phare.

Le phare de Razzoli est un des derniers à avoir été habité et gardé. Avant l'arrivée de l'électricité, la grosse lampe à acétylène nécessitait le travail de tant de personnes que dans l'édifice habitaient trois familles. En 1969, en raison de lésions sur le périmètre du phare, il fut difficile de maintenir le personnel sur place, le bâtiment fut déclaré comme n'étant plus habitable. Il est aujourd'hui abandonné.

Un système de panneaux solaires fait fonctionner automatiquement le nouveau phare de Razzoli: une autre tour située devant la face N du viel édifice. Il  fut construit en 1974. Sa lumière blanche a une portée de 13 miles. Une lumière rouge en bas débit, indique le danger des îles Lavezzi.

Il vecchio faro dell'isola Razzoli, costruito nel 1843, si erge a picco sul mare. Nelle vicinanze si trova il nuovo faro.

E' uno degli ultimi ad essere stato abitato e custodito. Prima dell’arrivo della corrente elettrica, la grande lampada d’acetilene richiedeva, per l’accensione, il lavoro di così tante persone che nell’edificio abitavano tre famiglie. Nel 1969, a causa delle lesioni perimetrali dell’edificio, le disagiate difficoltà di mantenere il personale a turno sul posto, il caseggiato fu dichiarato non più abitabile.
Oggi è abbandonato.

Un sistema di pannelli solari fa funzionare automaticamente il nuovo faro: un’alta torre situata davanti alla facciata nord del vecchio edificio, costruita nel 1974. La sua luce bianca ha una portata di 13 miglia. Una luce rossa, di portata inferiore, indica il pericolo delle isole di Lavezzi.
