Italy - The former railway station of Porta Romana is one of the historic areas of Milan waiting to be renovated with a project of urban revaluation.
Since 2015, Social Music City has enhanced that unused space with its tensio-structure, attracting thousands of young people thanks to the DJ sets and spectacular themed events.
The lighting system for Social Music City consists of 78 moving heads by DTS: 46 Raptor, 12 Evo and 20 Wonder units.
Daniele Campanaro, resident programmer at Social Music City, comments: "This is the second year that Feliciano Musillo (Felix) of Expect Nothing has asked me to programme the stage lighting. The lighting project of SMC is by Felix, with whom I collaborate on different projects programming the light shows.
“A lighting design that satisfies the variety of SMC events - from electronic dance to corporate events - is certainly not easy to create; in this case the use of a ‘matrix’ setup greatly facilitates the programming of the effects.”
Felix's idea was to create this matrix to obtain a ‘squared’ effect. it is made of two rectangular trusses containing 24 Raptor on four rows of six; 20 Wonder on four rows of five; and four Evo units used as keylight.
Also, there are four Evo laid down vertically on the internal sides of the layers to compact and highlight the matrix.
Twenttwo Raptor fixtures on two parallel trusses suspended above the audience round up the setup.
Daniele Campanaro is a lighting programmer particularly active in the television sector; among his most recent works are Saturday Night Live for TV8, and Big Show for Mediaset.
