NTR - Tripolina

String curtain

NTR - Tripolina«... they are long thin threads, with a very soft drop, that reflect well the light of projections, a sort of semitransparent screen, as a tulle, which can be crossed by actors.»Ezio Antonelli, scenic and visual designer of Ravenna Festival, ''Pietra di diaspro'' from an interview released to Sound&Lite, n. 68.

Lighting tests on two backdrops made of NTR - Tripolina 01. white.
The way of interacting with the light and the projections of the NTR - Tripolina backdrops, if the original striped effect is skipped, it is entirely similar to that of the Tulle backdrops.The illumination of the subjects that stand behind the backdrops cause their vision in transparency through two or more backdrops.
