Italy - A dBTechnologies VIO line array system powered the most famous music festival in Italy at the Ariston Theatre in Sanremo.
For Sanremo 2019, the 69th edition of the Festival of Italian Song, the RAI (Italian national public broadcasting company) technical team relied on dBTechnologies to guarantee quality sound coverage for one of the most awaited and popular events among Italian TV shows.
The Sanremo Festival brings together artists such as Andrea Bocelli, Zucchero, Eros Ramazzotti, Renato Zero, Laura Pausini and Nek, alongside international stars such as Queen, Eminem, Robbie Williams, Luis Fonsi and many others.
The versatility of VIO L210 allowed an articulated and complex composition that took into account the particular architectural features of the venue, including galleries and corridors and the ‘red carpet’ area.
The PA consisted of 16 VIO L210 (eight per side) as the main system, completed by six active subwoofers VIO S118 (3 per side) in cardioid configuration, six VIO L210 (two per side plus two central under the gallery) as delay. For the gallery, eight plus eight VIO L210 plus two subs VIO S118 and a centre-fill provided by two hanging VIO L210 were utilised.
The 69th edition of Sanremo Festival brought to the stage of the Ariston Theatre 22 popular artists plus two winners of the Sanremo Giovani contest.
The show was conducted by actress Virginia Raffaele and the comedian Claudio Bisio, together with singer and artistic director of the festival Claudio Baglioni. The final Saturday night episode recorded an overall average of 10.6m viewers.
The success of the VIO Series is reflected in the decision to use the same set up for Sanremo Young, a TV show set at the Teatro Ariston and dedicated to the youngest talents which will be broadcast live for five weeks, starting this month.
