This is achieved by complementing the already available data with new medium-resolution spectroscopy and near-infrared (NIR) photometry which allow us to (i) analyse in detail the cluster dynamics, distinguishing among galaxies belonging to different substructures and deriving their individual velocity distributions, using a total sample of 148 galaxies in the cluster region, of which 134 belonging to the cluster; (ii) derive the cluster NIR luminosity function; (iii) study the Kormendy relation and the photometric plane of cluster early-type galaxies (ETGs). Finally we provide an extensive photometric (optical and NIR) and spectroscopic data set for such a complex system to be used in further analyses investigating the nature, formation and evolution of rich clusters of galaxies. Description: Spectroscopic observations were carried out at the ESO New Technology Telescope (NTT) with the ESO Multi-Mode Instrument (EMMI) and at the Telescopio Nazionale Galileo (TNG) with the Device Optimized for the LOw RESolution (DOLORES), while NIR photometric data were collected with the Son OF ISAAC (SOFI) at NTT.
