Clay Paky lights the spectacular RadioItaliaLive show
“The image of the show and the art direction were left entirely up to my creative discretion, with absolute trust and no interference, apart from the constraints stemming from the necessary and continuous work to find solutions for all the rigging needs and requirements, permits, production costs, installation times and artistic requirements.”
Toscani counted on New Light, Gianpaolo Bruzzese's lighting service company associated with PRG Alliance, to provide innovative, exclusive equipment.
“Every year I feel the need to diversify the show despite the constraints I have to stick to: programming time; the 24x14 yard stage, which has to play host to a 55 piece orchestra; the limited space for the stage and the big 9x5 yard central led screen. These factors convinced me to rely heavily on video contributions and the video system developed and perfected with Event Management: six motorized double-face video screens.”
“For the lighting, I used different units made by different manufacturers, but the moving spotlights on the stage just had to be Clay Paky lights. My professional training still links me to that good old habit of using spotlights to create patterns and rays. I asked for 40 Sharpys installed on 14 columns and 30 Mythos units, which I had not used before and found to be excellent lights.”
“I needed to create patterns and textures which were visible despite the dominance of the LED screens. The Sharpy and Mythos lights helped me a lot to achieve the aims I set myself.”
“I chose Alpha Beam 1500s to light the architectural surroundings of Piazza Duomo and the audience, which is a television requirement. Although the street lights were on in the square, I was pleased with the power of the show lights.”
