Let me paint you a picture…
Policoro, a romantic costal Italian city boasting more culture than all Italian cheeses put together. Now visualise the Heraclea Awards; the seaside spectacle running happily into its seventh consecutive year, telling the story of Magna Graecia and the Lucan territory. Painting vivid pictures of the people, the culture and the heritage of Basilicata through technological installations. The event promotes the area, brings the community together and encourages historical education – all with a modern technological twist.
The 11th August last year saw a spectacular event with a whole host of exceptional guests, amongst them Red Canzian - historical bassist of the Pooh, international composer Nicola Lerra (author of the original music for the video "Herakleia"), Dolcenera and many others, all framed in the picturesque setting of Policoro a Mare.
The production designer Mario Garrambone has been able to develop a harmonised sequence of fashion, art and music – all whilst using the latest generation scenography. The design has been dubbed “eclectic and international and in perfect harmony with the spirit of the evening”. The stage boasts a panoramic 360° view of the show: 4 areas for the public, each with a space of 2500 square meters. A truly fully-immersive experience for all those present.
Technological partner, Art Sound, have continued to provide not only the best and most up-to-date technologies, but also developed a fondness for integrating PROLIGHTS into all aspects of the innovative lighting design.
Generoso Lodi, lighting manager for Art Sound commented: "PROLIGHTS technologies have been a fantastic solution for both us and our customers. They are the answer to many different needs of lighting and lighting installations. Their options are extensive and there are many ideas that we can draw from their creativity that they not only fulfil, but also help to encourage us to build upon our own ideas. The reliability and the extensive support that the PROLIGHTS team are able to supply in a short time is fundamental for those of us who are in the field."
