THREE DIMENSIONAL EMOTIONS
This year, to celebrate its annual festivities, Como has decided to
focus on spectacularity and on image, with a great architectural multivision
projected on the historical buildings of downtown Como.
The idea of this multiprojection is to bring the charm of the art, architecture
and landscape into the piazza, “dramatizing” the beauty
This artistic installation promises to be a great event, conceived and
planned for Como by Multivision designer Paolo Buroni, among the most
renowned and innovative contemporary visual experimenters. In his great
multimedia installations, he blends images with music and architecture
creating a unique language which is highly communicative and spectacular.
Piazza del Duomo
Imagine the magnificent Palaces, the Broletto, the Duomo, and even the
ground, completely covered in frescoes of elaborate antique paintings
and multi-colour graphical elaborations.
The spectators will find themselves immersed in a magnificent world
of images and music that slowly changes, an imaginary and surreal world,
but with journeys into ancient and modern art.
The Piazza del Duomo is a meeting place that serves the purpose of creating
this magic in an absolutely excellent manner thanks to its architecture
and perfect architectural regularity, surrounded by palaces on all four
“During my artistic career
as in this event, what I intend to do is create in the spectators the
sensation of a multisensorial immersion into the images. The images
will be elaborated and dramatized through the creation of an artistic
and emotional space in which a series of successive images interact
with the music, surrounding the spectator and aiming to creating a unique
and spectacular atmosphere.
My intent is to convey the emotion of the content rather than to narrate
the content through captioned references. To create, for one day only,
a small parallel universe, a place of wonder and astonishment to be
explored to experience ultimate emotions.”
The numbers for the installation:
- Director & Multivision designer – Paolo Buroni
- Graphics: Sabine Lindner
- Images: 1200
- Projection System – 20 special Stark projectors
- Power absorbed about 50 KW.
This Architectural Multiprojection
event in the Duomo di Como Piazza with over 2,000 square meters of images
represents a technological and technical challenge.
To reach the projection power
required, Stark (world leading company in this field) projection technologies
The entire projection system is managed by a special computerized direction
that synchronizes all of the images (in thousands of combinations) with
one another and with the soundtrack.
