Prolights Diamond LED washlights shone on the Grand Final of the 59th Castrocaro Festival, “Voci e volti nuovi”, live on Italian national broadcaster RAI 1.
Launching the careers of superstars including Eros Ramazzotti, Zucchero and Caterina Caselli caliber, this years festival had 12 young finalists hoping for the chance to follow in their footsteps. Guests of honour for the evening were “Stadio”, winners of the Sanremo Festival in 2016.
The Prolights fixtures were supplied to RAI by leading rental company Airone Service. Lighting supervisor, Antonio Bonetti, commented : " Castrocaro is a production with a great history and a popular following, so demands only the very highest standards. We chose to use a combination of 32 Prolights Diamond 37
and 50 Prolights Diamond19
LED washlights to provide beautiful colour washes and give us a wide range of interesting beam effects. On the side of the stage we chose 60 Prolights PixieBeam
LED to give us fast movement with stunning beams out into the audience.”
The impressive production design was based around a set of LED screens, created using another Prolights product the LedCompass8
, which were supplied by leading display company Showlive.
Antonio summarised “We were very excited with the outcome, and very pleased that the high production standards delivered a great show. "
