KATANA wins at the Sanremo Song Festival 2017

Spectacular!”, This the reaction of those who saw the new KATANA in action at the Sanremo Song Festival 2017.

The ‘Blade of light’ of KATANA was – no doubt – the main feature of a TV show that has broken every record; the light effect capable to renovate the lighting of the festival, broadcast to millions in Eurovision.

The rental company Emmedue installed a set of 20 KATANAs in the historic ‘Teatro Ariston’: 8 hung from a central motorized ring and 12 on the floor at both sides of the stage; facing the audience or angled towards the center, with a backlit effect on the singers never seen before.

Throughout the Festival, the KATANA has been a star on the stage of the ‘Ariston’: tracing in the air with intense projections, wrapping the singers in colors, cutting the scenic space with moving fans of almost tangible light.
It’s been an unprecedented success for the Sanremo Festival, but also a great achievement for the KATANAs, that have signed this unforgettable edition with their revolutionary ‘Blade of light’.
