Historical Perspective Celebrates Science at Italy’s Pavilion

Based on the question “What is energy and what does it serve?” the Italian pavilion comprised four oval-shaped areas each bearing the name of a prominent Italian scientist: Leonardo da Vinci, Alessandro Volta, Enrico Fermi, and Antonio Cotti, whose contributions to science and culture still resonate today. Immersing in Italy’s rich history and culture, visitors had context for the country’s achievement in generating more than 38% of its domestic power in 2016 from lternative sources while offering a vantage on Italy’s plan for emissions-neutral energy.

Pavilion designers used curved walls to tell stories in pictures, selecting a total of 29 lightweight PT-RZ670 and PT-RZ770 1-Chip DLP™ SOLID SHINE Laser projectors to present gorgeously vivid images distortion-free on curved screen surfaces. A highlight of the exhibition was a 360-degree video panorama edge-blended for curved-screen projection by 10 highly versatile PT-RZ670 projectors.

Filterless PT-RZ770 and PT-RZ670 units have sealed optics and work quietly and dependably in dusty conditions. Laser light source and single-cable connection allows flexible rigging at almost any angle.
