DIVINA BELLEZZA – DREAMING SIENA
Design and Production by Unità C1
2016 – Piazza Jacopo della Quercia, Siena
Divina Bellezza – Dreaming Siena is a 40 minutes architectural film on the art treasures of the ancient town of Siena, in Tuscany. The special location of this 270° mapping is the beautiful cathedral-shaped Jacopo della Quercia square in the old center of the town, beside the Duomo square. Human actors and performers are green-screen shooted and then immersed in the computer generated 3D visual environment. The architecture is both the backbone on which the story is created and the screen where the story is projected.
The whole production was based in Siena and many professionals of different fields, as well as common people, was involved in the project that has then become a social event beyond the cultural and enterteinment value.
Great attention was devoted to sound that was totally on radio earphones with binaural treatment to enhance spatialization and emotional involvement preserving the magical silence of a quiet italian medieval square.
