... and it creates a hemicycle that follows the circular profile of the lake and is used as a surface for frontal projections.
Ravenna Festival, ''Pietra di diaspro'' A symbolic staging for the use of the NTR - Tripolina string backdrops, because it fully uses all the characteristics of this material.The stage is frontally veiled by a black NTR - Tripolina string backdrop, while on the sides two bands of white NTR - Tripolina are hanging.In the middle of the stage we find a tubular backdrop made of white NTR - Tripolina.Behind the two ZSM - Magic Mirror backdrops installed on the stage with an angling of 90° they have been installed other two backdrops made of white NTR - Tripolina.All the NTR - Tripolina backdrops have been used by this scenography both in projection and in transparency, with the exception of the side bands that were used only in frontal projection.

Ezio Antonelli planned to use all the NTR - Tripolina backdrops in transparency and with projections, with the exception of those on the sides of the proscenium, which were devoted to reflect the projections only.Installed by the
The real image of the actress is that in the middle, the two images on the sides are reflected in the mirrors.The tubular made of NTR - Tripolina at the center is illuminated by white light, while the projections are effected both on the white NTR - Tripolina backdrops that are installed behind the ZSM - Magic Mirror backdrops and on the black NTR - Tripolina backdrop that veils the proscenium.
The actress goes out of the tubular backdrop made of white NTR - Tripolina that, since it is frontally illuminated with red light, has lost its own transparency.
The actress is standing inside the tubular curtain made of white NTR - Tripolina, that is very transparent because it is illuminated by the inside.
The actress embraces the threads of the tubular backdrop.
- wall / transparence effect
- original slightly striped aspect of the backdrops
- the actors can cross the threads


thanks to the modularity the width of the backdrops doesn't have a limit
the length of the threads is virtually without limits (for instance up to 25 m)
