The Lancia B24 descends to La Scala’s stage with Massivit 3D printing

Colorzenith has 3D printed a life-size replica of the classic Italian car, Lancia B24, for the Don Pasquale opera, using its Massivit 1800 3D Printer

Italy-based print provider, Colorzenith, has 3D printed a life-size replica of the classic Italian car, Lancia B24, for the Don Pasquale opera, performed in Europe’s largest opera house, La Scala in Milan, Italy.

The set designers, Davide Livermore, together with GIҠFORMA, required a lightweight car for an iconic scene where soprano, Rosa Feola, descends from the ceiling to the stage while sitting in the car.

Reflecting the growing adoption of 3D printing solutions in scenic design, Colorzenith produced the car on its Massivit 1800 3D Printer. The 4.23-m long and 1.3m high (13.88ft x 4.27ft) car was 3D printed in four parts in under four days.

Once printed, the car was sanded and strengthened with an internal metal frame to withstand the month-long performance. The team also glued headlights, mudguards and door handles to create a more lifelike appearance and provide a whole new immersive experience for theatre audiences.
