RCF is opening a new Italian concert venue named RCF Arena Reggio Emilia – which will be the largest outdoor venue in Italy – and will officially open on September 12, 2020.
“RCF was born in 1949 in Reggio Emilia. From here we brought the excellence of Italian sound throughout the globe and today we are among the major players in the market”, commented Arturo Vicari, CEO of RCF Group. “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 region and we intend to treat it in the best possible way. With this wonderful project, we will bring our innovation and technology to our back yard, in Reggio Emilia.”
The venue will allow for a capacity of 10,000 to 100,000 people, with a raked audience floor of five per cent to ensure optimal visibility and acoustics. The stage is placed in the lower part of the arena in a central position and with a maximum viewing angle of 110° – optimal value to provide the audience with good visibility throughout the entire arena.
“RCF audio systems have amplified the music of national and international artists in every corner of the globe, and in some wonderful arenas,” continued Vicari. “The RCF sound is based on the expertise and reliability of a company made up of people and passion. We have just turned 70 and we still want to play.”
The RCF Arena will include an RCF TT + permanently installed audio system, the flagship line of RCF audio systems for live events, with 10 additional distributed systems (delay towers) in fixed steel structures, also used as supports for video/lighting equipment. At the same time, the orientation of the system will be optimised to ensure the lowest noise impact on the inhabited areas of the city.
The inauguration of the RCF Arena will feature a concert by Ligabue.
