"Sant'Eligio to the Scythes. When the craft of the blacksmith becomes an artistic expression."

The set-up of the tour for the third edition of "Sant'Eligio to the Scythes" was designed in order to enhance the strong creative component that entails the work of a forger. Alternating working phases to other artistic expressions such as dance, music and short acts of literary works concerning the theme of craftsmanship, a sort of theatrical performance was staged within the nineteenth-century factory.

 

Thus the rhythm of mallets merged with that of the percussions, the workers became musicians, the lighting generated an original and unusual scenic effect.
