All the sequences moving images, the machinery and sounds are synchronized with the lighting sequences.
Complex video mapping for the reconstruction of the Modern Times machine.
Multiple large video projections of more than 6,00 m of base.
More than 250 audiovisual partners controlled and monitored in networks with a complete automation.

Part of the tour takes place in the mansion where Charlie Chaplin spent the last 25 years of his life: the story of this man is told with finesse and poetry, not only from the point of view of the history of cinema, but also on a family and personal level.

Particular attention has been paid to the most faithful reconstruction of the existing patrimony, again thanks to a close and constructive collaboration with the people in charge of historical monuments.

The scenography, sometimes very immersive, never takes precedence over the building, nor does it erase its character.
On the other hand, in the Museum, dedicated to the actor, the scriptwriter, the director or the musician-composer, the reconstitutions of sets, the scenographic creations structured with the most advanced technologies bring to life this most inspiring and innovative cinematographic universe.
