The fabric of GGI - Siria is the same of the GTR - Tarlatana, its rigidity springs from the particular dressing treatment.The comparison between the two fabrics underlines how a very different consistency corresponds to the same weft.
The tormented high grounds of this scenography by Arnaldo Pomodoro have been realized by the scenographical workshop of Teatro alla Scala of Milan with a large use of GGI - Siria. Teatro alla Scala, ''Teneke''
GGI - Siria is a lightweight plain-woven cotton fabric with a loose and transparent texture.
In scenography it is normally used as a support, soaked in a solution of water and vinyl glue, to reinforce the surface of scenic elements or polystyrene sculptures.
It is also used for veils, transparency effects, costumes and props.
The same fabric stiffened with the vinyl solution is the GTR - Tarlatana.
