Until April 2018
It’s difficult to describe this event. The best explanation is that the music of Venetian composer Antonio Vivaldi (1678-1741) – known in Venice as the ‘Red Priest’ and universally recognized as the creator of the ‘Four Seasons’ (the most widely performedwork in the world), is interwoven with his life in a unique narrative. This presentation offers visitors an opportunity to gain insight into the revered composer’s life and works. It is not just a listening experience dedicated to the most important musician and violin virtuoso of the late baroque period, but a multi-sensory experience, enhanced by olfactory effects, to introduce audiences to a totally unique, interactive format.
Three rooms at the Museo Diocesano, 15-20 excerpts of Vivaldi’s compositions, 35 minutes of listening, immersive HD images and cutting-edge technological solutions, volume mappings and videos and light all interact with architectural elements to create a breathtaking performance of shapes, colours, music and emotions.
Based on an interpretation by poet and art director Davide Rondoni, with technical production by Jean-François Touillaud, highly skilled artists and technicians have taken this performance to a whole new level to offer audiences a unique sensorial experience.
