Al gran sole carico d’amore

About This Project

PROJECT: This exhibition for Triennale-Milan is a commemoration and tribute to the opera “Al gran sole carico d’amore” by the composer Luigi Nono, set up at the Lyrical Theater of Milan in 1978. The exhibited material takes centre stage in an exciting and interactive show, with various outposts in constant dialogue through projection, sound, interactive installations and physical documents.
At the entrance, structural wood frames are designed to house and circulate photographs, letters and interviews. Furthermore, 1:1 scale reconstructions feature original wooden platforms where the choir singers were harnessed and suspended hundreds of feet in the air.A multi-touch interactive station ( for the consultation of archived material: photographs, manuscripts, scores, set designs, letters, contemporary reviews , literary sources)is the central database of the exhibition.A three-dimensional zoetrope surrounds a faithful model of the set and allows visitors to observe a fundamental aspect of the opera: movement. 

CLIENTS: Triennale Milano / Fondazione Paolo Grassi / Fondazione Luigi Nono

IDEA AND REALIZATION. Mammafotogramma with Neologie
TECHNIQUE: interactive technologies meet the most ancient techniques. Robust and concrete materials such as wood and iron appear lively when combined with canvas and light. This dichotomy pays tribute to Nono’s work: a constant search for timeless classicism in direct confrontation with the contemporary languages, to create a total composition.
