Appointment on 12 September 2020, from which the adventure of the largest Italian venue for open-air concerts, signed by RCF, will officially start.
RCF is a well-known company not only in Italy, but more generally in the world. Founded in 1949 in Reggio Emilia, the company – in the words of its CEO Arturo Vicari – “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 territory and we intend to treat it at its best. With this wonderful project we will bring our sound innovation and technology to our home, in ReggioEmilia.”
In short, a signature that does not hide the vocation of RCF in the continuous search for sound quality, with particular attention to this new “Music Valley” of Emilia.
But what will the RCF Arena look like? With its one hundred thousand seats it will rise, in the area already known as Campovolo, to be the largest open-air arena in Italy. The location will be ready and operational by September 2020, and will allow a capacity from 10.000 to 100.000 people, with all the necessary services. The 5% slope of the lawn will ensure optimal visibility and acoustics. The stage will be placed in the lower part of the Arena, in a central position and with a maximum viewing angle of 110°, optimal value to allow the public a good visibility in the whole internal area of the Arena.
The RCF Arena will also be equipped with the most modern concert technologies, including an RCF TT+ resident audio system, the flagship line of RCF audio systems for live events, with ten additional distributed systems (delay towers) on steel residents structures, also usable as supports for video/lighting equipment.
At the same time, the orientation of the system will be optimized to ensure the lowest noise impact towards the inhabited areas of the city.
“RCF audio systems have amplified the music of national and international artists in every corner of the globe, in wonderful arenas”, continues Arturo Vicari. “RCF sound is the intelligence and reliability of a company made of people and passion. We have just turned 70 years, but we still want to play!”
The RCF Arena will be inaugurated with the concert-event of Ligabue, which here lived the best evenings of his career, establishing, among other things, in 2015, the European record of audience for a single artist: one hundred and fifty thousand paying! Obviously, the concert was amplified with an RCF audio system… The return of the international big names is already foreseen, in a space that, in terms of capacity, communication routes and accommodation will have no equal in Italy.
