Venice (February 14, 2005)–Italian PA rental company Audio Uno recently Nexo Geo S speaker arrays in the historic Gran Teatro La Fenice de Venezia, which dates back to 1792. The venue has been completely restored following a fire in 1996, so Audio Uno was called upon to provide sound for the first major event to take place there since its renovation and re-opening.
The event–the Premio Campiello-is considered to be Italy’s top competition for writers, and this was the first occasion the awards ceremony had been held in the Fenice. For the 2,500-capacity theatre, Audio Uno supplied a Geo S tangent-array system which was configured in left and right arrays of eight Geo S830 cabinets each side. Meanwhile, a pair of CD12 subbass bins were included on each side of the stage, PS10s were used for downfill and the system, powered by LabGruppen, was mixed from a Yamaha DM2000 digital mixer.
