The Green Room which so captivated the local population last year during Barga Jazz Festival – more than 700 portraits (all images can be seen here) were taken by the two photographers, Caterina Salvi and Keane using the lighting project designed by Marco Poma, is open once again.
Poma’s first light creation during the Barga Jazz festival 2013 was based upon music but for this event, no longer a series of rigid vertical slashes of LED lights marking out a kind of musical score (article and interview here) , instead he has created two voluptuous curves of light which can even change colour depending on the settings.
Three weeks ago the two photographers, Caterina Salvi and Keane moved all their equipment back into the Villa Libano and once again the usually locked door of the Green Room was open and ready for business BUT only for a couple of sessions.
The door has been locked once again and the Green Room is shut once more.

During the winter Marco Poma exhibited his work using time worn wood and LED lights in the Palazzo Pancrazi (video here) not content with the success of that exhibition, he is now working on another project in his workshop/studio up on the hills above Barga which he is intending to bring down and show to the public later on this month.
As can be heard in the short conversation with Marco there is always a philosophical concept centered around his work and as so often appears in his work, the joining and merging of old and new.
