Founded in Nyon (Switzerland) during the 1st International Congress on Ancient Lighting Devices (2003), the ILA has now more than a hundred fifty members in 27 different countries. The objective of the ILA is to act as a federation of specialists (professors, researchers, students) in order to promote the study of lighting from the Prehistorical, Ancient and Mediaeval worlds to the Renaissance.
The ILA organizes a large triennal congress, and several thematic round-tables, with help of Museums, Universities and interested Istitutions. The acts of the reunions are always published.
The ILA has a brand new internet site (www.lychnology.org), where you can find lots of information.
