On Sunday 21 of June, Pope Benedict XVI made a special visit in San Giovanni Rotondo, in southern Italy to pray in the Sanctuary of Saint Pio da Pietralcina. The Pope celebrated Mass and recited the Angelus in the Churchyard of San Pio da Pietralcina , where more than 50,000 worshippers gathered from all over the world. RCF’s TT+ Touring and Theatre system had been chosen to amplify the sound for the event.
Local rental company Sonika, which had organised the technical aspects of the celebrations and had also looked after many such events in past years, choose again to use the TT+ Series from RCF for this very important day. Apart from giving vast coverage, the system had to be flexible enough to amplify both the speech and the music, which was played by the Symphonic Orchestra of the Niccolò Piccinini Conservatoire in Bari.
Mr. Raffaele Coletta, owner of Sonika, commented: “Having previously worked with TT+ in a great variety of situations, I was confident of the results. The output and the coverage were excellent which allowed perfect intelligibility of the speech and an accurate and precise reproduction of the richness of the orchestra”.
