“PALCOSCENICO – A DIZZYING DANCE ON ITAMA 75”: A SPECTACULAR AND GROUNDBREAKING PERFORMANCE ON THE WATER
Graceful and sinuous dance moves, rocked by the waves, on board the iconic Itama 75. An extraordinary setting for a breakthrough initiative in the world of dance and yachting
Light, elegant dance steps on the generous foredeck of one of Itama’s iconic models, with the sea providing the backdrop for the amazing “Palcoscenico – A Dizzying Dance on Itama 75″: an emotionally charged video created by Ferretti Group brand Itama, with the creative direction of Craq Design Studio, music by Valerio Pellegri and Alessandra Ferrari and in partnership with Massimo Carosi, artistic director of Danza Urbana, the International Festival of Dance in urban landscapes in Bologna, who has a wealth of expertise staging dance projects in unconventional
A symbol of timeless Italian elegance, Itama transformed the generous teak foredeck of Itama 75 into an extraordinary 30-square-metre stage overlooking the water, which was used as the exciting set for a 4-minute video shot in the early morning light. This pioneering project in the field of dance and yachting makes use of an exceptionally large space for a boat of this size, exploiting the unusual gradients of the foredeck to create dance steps that reach out over the water, communicating a genuine sense of vertigo.
The elegant, flowing movements of three dancers from the MM Dance Company directed by Michele Merola lead us through a choreography divided into three sections: a slower, more progressive introduction during which the protagonists take possession of the foredeck, the solos in which three dancers play individually with the spaces on board Itama 75 and, finally, a more dynamic composition created specifically to highlight the sense of freedom that typifies the yachts built by this shipyard with a “Mediterranean soul”.
The carefully researched costumes worn by the dance company were designed by Nuvia Valestri, inspired by the colours of Itama 75’s teak foredeck and the dawn sky. Paying tribute to the natural elements, they offer a masterful interpretation of the lightness of the morning breeze and the power of the waves breaking on the rocks.
Framed against an evocative and imposing backdrop of clouds and waves, the dance steps celebrate not only a well-known iconic model like Itama 75, but an entire range characterised by the perfect synthesis of power and elegance and an Italian design that has led to these magnificent boats being described as “designed by the sea”.
