To finish with the lighthouse and the base external support painted in ebony color. In short, the lighthouse is a structure, generally a tower, equipped at the top with a system consisting of a lamp and a system of lenses that increase its visual power, capable of emitting powerful light signals that are of help and reference to navigation. They are located near landing places or indicate dangerous places or other places where it is useful to have a perceptible point during coastal navigation. In ancient times, navigation was mainly coastal and diurnal, only around the year 300 BC. That great structures were built that will remain unique examples of lighthouses for centuries, such as the monumental one of the Colossus of Rhodes, considered one of the Seven Wonders of the World, in the early twentieth century the electrification of lighthouses began.
