Teatro Dante Alighieri, ''Falstaff''

Ravenna

200 strips 15 cm wide and 8 m high made of silver BRL - Rexor were disposed in way to make a Crossing backdrop, an interlacement of mobile bands, at times translucent or reflecting, that creates a kind of forest for light and transparency effects that alternate or overlap to the rear-projections on the RNO - Notturno screen in the background.

The light games projected on the strips made of silver BRL - Rexor (green and yellow tones) alternate with the transparencies of the rear-projections (blue and azure tones) that illuminate the screen in the background realized with RNO - Notturno film, width 15 m and height 13 m.

Here instead the strips made of silver BRL - Rexor collect the blue light that is diffused on the scene and they allow just to glimpse among the chinks the magenta rear-illumination that concerns, on the left, a part of the RNO - Notturno screen.
Front projections, on the sides, on three couples of framed wings realized with the PNE - Nerissimo film.The wings can slide thanks to several 1K - Kompas rail systems and they get more narrow going toward the background of the scene where there is a perspective with trees that is rear-projected on the RNO - Notturno screen.The new RNO - Notturno film is totally black, it hasn't any hot spot effect, it also maintains the transparency and the angle of vision of the preceding version of the film and it has an exceptional color fidelity.
The nighttime vision of Giuseppe Verdi's native house in Roncole (Italy) is rear-projected on the RNO - Notturno screen. On the right, the marble bust of Verdi is frontally projected on one of the wings made of PNE - Nerissimo film. The green leafy branches at the top are the effect of a frontal projection that interests both the RNO - Notturno screen and the PNE - Nerissimo wings.
