Star DJ Joe T. Vannelli joins the ranks of top club owners with the recent opening of the Area Venezia in the North Italian town of Mestre. Worthy of comparison with the very finest discotheques in the world, the Area Venezia relies on a DYNACORD alpha concept system to provide the sound, while guest DJs like Boy George bring on the glamour

When a disc jockey and producer whose services are in demand throughout the world opens his own discotheque, one thing is clear: he is fulfilling a long cherished dream. Such, indeed, was the case when Joe T. Vannelli, the internationally renowned Italo-house and techno DJ, purchased an aging discotheque in the North Italian town of Mestre. With the aid of architect Massimo Cadamuro, Vannelli set out to transform the existing building into a superlative dance temple in which the quality of the sound system – tailored precisely to the acoustics of the various guest areas – would be such as to satisfy the very highest international standards. The result is the Area Venezia.

Having worked in many of the finest discotheques in the world, Joe T. Vannelli knew exactly which system he wanted for his own club: an alpha concept from DYNACORD, and he entrusted the task of performing the installation to the Renate-based pro audio company dSoundPro. To tailor the system perfectly to the architecture of the building, dSoundPro’s team of experts ran the simulation software EASE. The results of EASE’s acoustic CAD simulations revealed not only the position and orientation but also the power handling characteristics of each loudspeaker, all needed to obtain an even distribution of the sound throughout the club, with constant sound pressure levels along both the vertical and horizontal axes.

The wisdom of choosing an alpha concept system was immediately apparent during the two-day opening festivities on February 22nd & 23rd, which proved an unforgettable experience for over a thousand guests on each occasion, with Joe T. Vannelli enjoying himself hugely in his new role of host. Barely a week later the club saw its first guest appearance by an international star: Culture Club vocalist, DJ, and bird-of-paradise Boy George, who delivered a suitably stellar set. Since then, special guests including Niki Belucci and Satoshi Tomiie have consolidated the club’s reputation as one of Europe’s finest, as did the March 1st release of the house compilation “Area Venice�.

About the Area Venezia

In addition to its striking glass pillars, dazzling laser shows, four bars, and generously dimensioned dance floors, the new discotheque boasts a permanent exhibition of the work of the designer Alex Turco. The Area Venezia has also been accorded the privilege of using the celebrated Venice logo designed by Thibaut Mathieu – further recognition of its status as one of the world’s elite clubs.
