Wideline rocks in Italian quarry

7 March 2007

Italy - Although world famous for its Parmesan cheese, Reggio Emilia is also the home of Mordente Music Service, a rental firm run by Beppe Pelliciari which has built a reputation in specific sectors of the sound reinforcement market, such as classical, operatic and spoken word.

Some of the more recent events on which the company has used its QSC ISIS WideLine arrays have included open-air concerts by the orchestra and chorus of Genoa's Carlo Felice theatre, with music ranging from opera, through the classics to the Beatles. For these events, the subwoofers used were a pair of QSC WL218S-sw and the powerhouse comprised QSC PL 236 and 230 amplifiers.

Another interesting event was Cividale del Friuli's MittelFest, a festival of the performing arts under the artistic direction of Moni Ovadia, which offers a showcase spanning the artistry of Central Europe, as well as shows involving the whole town of Cividale. The recent festival ended with a unique event in terms of both content and location. The 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights was 'performed' by actors and musicians at the Tarpezzo stone quarry in San Pietro al Natisone.

FOH engineer was Corrado Cristina, who explained: "We made wide use of QSC's ISIS WideLine array at the MittelFest - using a similar set-up to Genoa for the classical music concerts in the town square as for those held in the quarry."
