The company De Sisti Lighting, established in February 1982, was and is for Fabio and Sergio the carrier that allows to express their ideas and their cognitive baggage acquired in the design and implementation of lighting systems. The extraordinary opportunity to have for many years as their master and their teacher, Mario De Sisti, known in the Lighting industry for the many innovative products and systems developed between 1960 and 2000 and with the attendance of the best Italian and international Ci-nematographers, they are instruments of which Fabio and Sergio have made gold combining them with their passion and keen interest in optics and physics related to lighting technology. Those motivate them to participate in a dense list of international meetings of various associations and universities at international level, keeping them up to date on available technologies and cutting-edge methods for the realization of high-performance lighting products. Fabio and Sergio De Sisti, hold the following Industrial Patents: 1. “Improvement in lighting guides for lighting technology. “Italian Patent: 07/12/1995 – 2.” Hot and cold prismatic processes for the guides of Light” – 3.” Device for the adaptation of a projector to different lamps “Italian Patent: 11/14/2001 – European Paten: 06/29/2005 – 4. “Improvement of lifting device for lighting equipment (SPIDER) Italian Patent 14/11/2001 – US Patent: 06/08/2002 – 5 “Improved device for switching on and powering discharge lamps” (TWO-PARTS IGNITER) Italian Patent: 25/11/2002 – European Patent of 03/11/2003 – US Patent of 11/13/2003 – 6. “Projector for integrated discharge lamps” (ALL IN ONE) Italian Patent: 28/09/2004 – US Patent of 29/04/2008 – 7. “Device for adjusting the light intensity for floodlights with discharge lamps” (OPTICAL DIMMER), Italian Patent: 12/19/2007 – European Patent: 26/03/2008 – US Patent: 29/01/2008 – Recently: Italian, European and USA Patent for the system: Optic for LED light projectors with Fresnel lens or Convex Plane, Italian Patent: 12/08/2011 – European Patent: 09/08/2012 – US Patent: 17/05/201, confirming the full involvement of Fabio, Sergio and the whole De Sisti to the new technologies for the realization of lighting fixtures. As a continuation of their father’s dream, the two brothers are carring on with the De Sisti brand, which is articulated on a global level, with a factory in Italy (in Rome), one in Mexico and affiliates located throughout the world.
