Reggio Emilia, Italy (November 12, 2019)—There’s little question as to what brand of house PA will be used inside the new RCF Arena Reggio Emilia. Set to become the largest outdoor venue in Italy—and likely one of the largest permanent performance facilities in the world—the new site will open for business on September 12, 2020 with a concert by Italian singer Ligabue.
The shed lawn-style venue will allow for a capacity of 10,000 to 100,000 people, with a raked audience floor to aid visibility and acoustics. The stage will be placed in the lower part of the venue in a central position and with a maximum viewing angle of 110° in order to provide visibility throughout the entire arena.
The RCF Arena will include an RCF TT + permanently installed audio system for live events, with 10 additional delay towers in fixed steel structures that will also provide support for video/lighting equipment.
“RCF audio systems have amplified the music of national and international artists in every corner of the globe, and in some wonderful arenas,” said Arturo Vicari, CEO of RCF Group, in a statement.
“RCF was born in 1949 in Reggio Emilia. From here, we brought the excellence of Italian sound throughout the globe, and today we are among the major players in the market. Giving our name to RCF Arena is a source of pride for us, but also a mission and a commitment. We have a strong bond with this region and we intend to treat it in the best possible way. With this wonderful project, we will bring our innovation and technology to our backyard, in Reggio Emilia.”
