Bologna venue revamped with Milos

6 January 2009

Italy - A Milos M950 trussing system has been permanently installed into the newly revamped FuturShow Station venue in Casalecchio di Reno near Bologna.

The building is under new management of the Sabatini Group and home to the Virtus Bologna A Series basketball team, who play all their home games there. The Sabatini Group also plans to expand the general use of the venue - which can hold up to 13000 people using mobile grandstands - to host major concerts, shows, conferences and other live sporting events. This necessitated the need for a flexible all-purpose trussing system from which to hang sound, lighting and AV equipment.

As this was such a high profile project, Bologna-based Decima Italia designed, supplied and installed the three trussing grids themselves. The main one measures 22 x 20m and has a weight loading of 40 tons, while the two side grids each measure 12 by 4m, with a weight loading of eight tons.

Decima Italia's Fabio Anselmi says that they decided on the QuickTruss M950 trussing because they required a system with some serious weight loading, and this is the latest, largest and heaviest duty in the current Milos range. "This was the best and most appropriate trussing for the application" states Anselmi, "It offers strength and introduces great technical versatility to the FuturShow Station."

The trussing was delivered to Decima Italia direct from the Milos manufacturing facility in the Czech Republic. The project was handled for Milos by Milan Kolousek. The trussing is all painted black, and rigged on a total of 28 motors for easy rigging and maintenance.
