Fantastic effort by the construction team cleared the site in just one day, if that was in the UK the site would have been a sea of fluorescent jackets and dozens of people wandering around with clip boards and of course it would have taken at least three days to do the same job.
17sep18--Date: Friday, 21 & Saturday, 22 September 2018 21:00 : Marostica " Opera On Ice " - Italian Rhythmic Symphony Orchestra - Orchestra Conductor Diego Basso "Opera on Ice" now opens in the historic and elegant Piazza degli Scacchi di Marostica. The incredible and unique show is the only one of its kind with famous ice skaters performing to the most renowned opera arias. The Piazza provides a wonderful setting for the performance with a central ice rink of about 800 square meters. In the background, one can see the beauty of the Lower Castle as well as the orchestra, the choir, and the live soloists. EnJoy EnJoy
13sep18--Piazza degli Scacchi in Marostica = Chess Square in Marostica : Of the four shows the 5pm Sunday pageant was the most enjoyable for viewing here. Using two browsers , one for each 'live-feed', viewers had great seats for the event. Audio was excellant, the Master of Ceremoies (MC) could be heard clearly, period musical instruments were thrilling, and cheers and applause of the spectators was great. Events started about 5:45 with the MC explaining and setting up the scene. Introductions of the characters and players exiting from the castle and parading around the square with drummers and Flag Dancers ( flagging ). Living chess pieces were introduced with about a dozen horses in precious costumes. Charming ladies and intrepid knights, jokes zanni, jugglers and spitfires. Archers and halberdiers, infantrymen and knights, falconers, pages and bridesmaids. The chess game started at 6:45 and victory at 7:05pm. At the end of the challenge a triumph of fires, lights and festive shouts greeted the winner. The castle is illuminated with white light if the victory had been won by the knight Lionora, was secretly in ❤ love ❤. EnJoy EnJoy
Thank you for the other camera, it was a great spectacle to watch. I had this one on for the sound, so I could see and hear everything. Spectacular show. Thank you again!
The other cam is online now.Also disappointed they have moved this cam so I can't see the chessboard , it was visible last week when I looked, but maybe there will be something to see on top of the tower like fireworks or something.
Very disappointing indeed!
Have been waiting with bated breath to watch the pageant but so disappointed that one webcam has only a restricted view, the other has gone off line completely, so we will not be able to watch the chess game. Same with Siena Palio - webcam shuts down!
Why did you take the other camera away? It had a better view of the chess game... This one has sound but you can't see anything!
28aug18--A second 'live-cam' has been added from the other end of Piazza degli Scacchi. Fantastic.
Congratulations on the show. Greetings Brazil
