to the performances of the various delegations on the evening of the
inaugural event, the Mountain has become the backdrop for enormous three-dimensional
images created through the innovative technology of Paolo Buroni’s
“Outerspace” Multivision show.
The evening of the
inauguration, a new technology has been used to project a large Multivision
show by Paolo Buroni covering the entire arrival area up the snow on the
ski trails which was the scenario for the World Ski Championships.
The mountain, the trail and the snow itself was been appointed as a natural
screen for the event and covered by a puzzle of overlapping images fading
one into the other with the accompaniment of synchronised music.
Bormio 2005 was the magnificent backdrop for the installation of the innovative
and sophisticated equipment necessary for this “Stark” multiple
image projection. 25 special projectors has been used to cover the vast
white surfaces with enormous images transforming the mountainside into
a huge virtual scenographic setting.
This multiple image projection, under the direction of Paolo Buroni and
based on an idea developed by Mrs.Tiziana Bezzi, begun with a succession
of alpine images and a crescendo of winter landscapes as it creates the
backdrop for the performances of the delegations of the
As in a slow-motion film sequence, a succession of hundreds of animated
images was projected using lap fade effects, image overlapping and scrolling
accompanied by a
synchronised sound track.
Also during the awarding of prizes helded every evening in the affected
and characteristic Kuerc Square in the middle of Bormio village, an every
day different architectural Stark
multivision show was the amazing outline for the prize-giving to the winners.
These complicated installations, which also required the use of a helicopter
for transporting and setting up the equipments has been designed and created
by Stark srl, a
Pesaro based Italian company, specialised in this type of event and which
also constructs the different equipments used for the installation.
Paolo Buroni, an internationally
renowned Multivision designer has already staged similar events using
three-dimensional Multiple Image Projections in the most unexpected of
places: Montecarlo for the Ferrari team, on the Marmore Waterfall in Terni-Italy
for an Archie Sheep concert, in the stadiums of Istanbul (Turkey) and
San Siro (Italy), at the Coex
Centre in Seoul (South Korea), and most recently at the 2004 Biennial
Venice Film Festival.
