From Lighting & Sound International, December 1999
Teatro was established in February 1987 when Bruno Dedoro of club lighting effects manufacturer Coemar was looking to develop a new range of products specifically aimed at theatre. Mike Lowe had recently resigned as managing director of Strand Lighting and so the two formed a partnership with Teatro taking up residence next door to the main Coemar HQ in Castle Goffredo. Over the years the company developed a complete range of professional theatre lighting, which began with the 1k Tratto and 2k Acuto and grew to embrace the full range of profiles, PCs, fresnels, floods, cyclorama, followspots, parlights, colour changers and accessories.
The company was closed down in 1999 after 12 years trading.
