HSE - Tempesta
silk is a natural silk for scenography.
It is a timeless fabric of ancient origin, the synthetic imitations such as the artificial silks HSP - Tempesta Poly
and HSX - Sintex
are superior in width, resistance and fireproofing, but are unable to fully imitate its impalpability and light reaction properties.
Its lightness makes it almost endowed with a life of its own, an imperceptible movement of the air is enough to make the surface of even large backdrops vibrate
A wind effect, on the other hand, makes them swell
in a spectacular way.
It is used for the creation of flat scenographic backdrops
, sometimes with Kabuki opening
, for draped curtains
, in strips
for choreographic movements.
Some famous installations by Josef Svoboda
and Luciano Damiani
have handed it down to history as a queen of the stage and, to date, the relative fragility and defects typical of a fabric still produced with artisanal standards are not enough to overshadow it.
It is also used in the HSE - Tempesta digital printing
and HSK - Tempesta Stropicciata
