The extraordinary union of the opposites
Martarello has been taking advantage of natural elements for almost a century: fire is used to light up the sky, air is the backdrop for fairylike choreographies, the earth supports the huge facilities needed for the shows and water acts as a magical mirror, reflecting the evanescent lights as they fly up into the sky.
Our aquatic fireworks do not simply use the suggestive surface of the waters as a mirror, but they interact with it. As they come together, fire and water, the opposites, create surreal and surprising sceneries.
The fireworks brighten up the night and then plunge into the water, or float on it by exploding into tongues of multicoloured flames, by amazing effects they transform lakes, seas and rivers into wavy expanses of colour.
