Veste, quae ex duobus texta est, non indueris (Do not wear clothing woven of two kinds of material): so says the verse 19 of the nineteenth chapter of Leviticus. The cultural problem of clothing coloured in two colours, or better by lines, considered diabolic up to the modern age, is one of the aspects taken into serious consideration only when the matter is the fabric. Confirming that imposition we can note i.e. that in one part of the mosaics in Sant’Apollinare Nuovo basilica’s representing the palace of Teodoricus the lines on the curtains are carefully avoided. Small signs regularly distributed on the curtains break the chromatic monotony of the fabric. This inheritance seems today completely not only vanished, but even inverted: there is no textile solar protection without lines. More, the fact that the sector of textile solar protection, mistakenly considered not important for the quality of the built environment, is gathering positions on the priority list on the point of view of the technologies that have effect on the building look should let attract the attention of those who are concerned on products for building. Then, the adoption of European community directions finalized to energy saving on buildings promote the installation of such a type of protection on the building facades. Those and others reasons needs the activation of specific specializations and design that take part with the production world, specially because they influence the life quality on the built environment, and specifically on the point of view of colour, have a great influence on the quality of architectures
