"Storia della Notte e Destino delle Comete Italian Pavillon 59th International Art Exhibition La Biennale di Venezia. Folio is the Official Technical Sponsor of the large environmental installation by Gian Maria Tosatti, curated by Eugenio Viola for the Italian Pavilion 59. International Art Exhibition - La Biennale di Venezia, promoted by the General Directorate for Contemporary Creativity of the Ministry of Culture Venice, 23 April 2022 - 27 November 2022". The tour inside the Italian Pavilion ends with the room that hosts the night sea. The gloomy, bare, industrial ambience stretches towards an endless horizon. The distant lampposts on the quayside illuminate the docks through Folio Domino Quad downlights. Folio technology is put at service of the large-scale environmental installation, making fireflies real as they centralise in the background, illuminating the waves as they crash onto the concrete. The small Folio LED spots become protagonists in the symbolic tale of the outraged nature taking back its space.
