A Potain MDT98 tower crane changed theatrical sets between opera productions for Verona Arena in Italy in 2016

A Potain MDT98 tower crane was used at the famed Verona Arena in Italy to change theatrical sets between productions for its entire 2016 opera season.

Verona, Italy-based Toffoli Macchine rented the 6 tonne capacity crane for the project, which had the crane use its 55 metre jib radius to reach over the arena’s walls and assemble sets during the day.

By night the crane helped dismantle the scenery. It replaced a Potain GTMR 386 B that was formerly used for this job for 15 years.
