Milan-based lighting rental company GemmiLuci now has over 300 Robe moving light fixtures–encompassing the whole Robe range. The company does not undertake project work; it acts as a service company offering a large rental stock of all equipment available for dry hire.
GemmiLuci works in all sectors of the entertainment and leisure industry. According to MD Roberto Virgilio, the last two years have seen an expansion in the amount of lighting rentals supplied to the television market, especially for Italy’s two main TV producing companies, RAI and Mediaset.
“Now Robe is being specified more than ever by LDs for the top shows,” confirms Virgilio. “Robe’s Color Spot and Wash 1200 is now very often the first choice for lighting designers wanting a powerful moving head.”
In 2002, GemmiLuci were Robe Italia’s first major client (then known as SR Consulting) when they took the brand onboard. GemmiLuci recently supplied Robe to: ARCO Multimedia for Adriano Celentano’s variety show, Rock Politik RAI 1; over a hundred Robe MS Zoom 250 units (LD Aldo Solbiati) to several Mediaset programs; quiz show Cologno Monzese recorded at Studio 11 in Milan; rental company Mixer Sound & Light for “L’Isola del Famosi” (Island of the Famous) for LD Alessandro Porcaru. They also supplied ARCO Multimedia with additional kit for Miss Italia 2005.
