segnali di fuoco: Signs of Fire on CD-ROM was developed and produced by Giuseppe Galliano and from its structure, Fabrica Art & Media. Born from an idea of former lead singer of Vanadium Pino Scotto, and Giuseppe Galliano, engaged for about 4 years in the production of multimedia titles but also the personal manager of the Artist, cd-roms of Signs of Fire is an interactive travel lanes and nightclubs, confined to the reserves of rock that burns. In a virtual world, this is true, but not so different from reality, a path winds through video, photographs, interviews, TV appearances, the monograph written by Pino’s friend Norman Zoia, wanted, thought and lived through the experiences of the singer and his manager personally.
Signs Of Fire is an immersive cd-rom, it means that there are no without interfaces with buttons, but all it is played in three-dimensional environments, real or imaginary, but physical and definable within precise spatial limits: a world that does not exist, but not why could not exist ………
Signs Of Fire should be lived, visited and discovered by ‘user following their instincts and their own experiences. If you are of this opinion, then stop reading immediately and place the CD into your computer: 3d environments in the CD-ROM should also be explored in search of audio and video, to taste them as a beer drunk in a local hard to find. For those, however, wanted to see all the contributions in one session, then the navigation paths attachment will certainly help.

It starts from an alley, where a can of gas will launch a warning or a score introduce “Gamines”, a song written by Pino to shout their anger against the exploitation of children. A poster for a show of Vanadium gonna see a video clip vintage “You can not stop the music”, while in another poster (this time dedicated to a drink which Pino is crazy of….) are enclosed in the most beautiful photos of his career. The phone, then, the rocker will talk of his approach to music, while in another scene, a strange character gonna let you see a video of the last Vanadium, “In the Heart of Chaos.” Turned the corner, another poster of a show of Vanadium, you will see a video clip of the last Vanadium, “Black Dream Grunge”, and always on the poster of that drink that Pino love so much, there are photos of her with some famous friends. And here we are in front of a disco, important for people who have created an interactive journey, the Garage 2001: one of the first metal club in Italy designed and managed for years by its’ author of the cd-rom. The reconstruction and it ‘a fairly realistic simulation ………
Skyscrapers on the sides of the disco there are two videos, “God’s Blues,” produced solo Pine and a brand new cover of the Ravens, “Boy Strada”, the period of “Pink Floyd Jam Roll Project”. In both graffiti eyes the sides of the garage there are two other video: “Run Too Fast”, filmed at London’s legendary Marquee, at the time of album “Born to Fight” and “Rock and His Brothers”, from experience of with Synergy. Before entering the club, the genie will let us see interview with Pink Floyd during the participation in the Monsters of Rock, in which he explains how to play heavy in country like Italy. The nose of Engineers will make us advance ……
And here we are inside the garage, 3d model, that’s right as it was, and reserve space for the hard rock and the heavy metal. The gas station will make us see Pino host Fabio Fazio “Those who Football”, while in the car, the cabin of the DJ, just where the had placed the owner of the garage, after playing with the plate, can listen to all the songs on the cd-audio “Signs of Fire.” Once in front of the stage, after a drum solo, you can see a movie alleging performance of Pink Floyd at the Monsters Of Rock 1982, in front of 43,000 people. After the video, and after another drum solo, there is more ‘sit behind the drums, play them and see, in the snare, some unpublished sequences stolen backstage at the Monsters Of Rock.
At the bar of a prosperous Garage bartender will show us all the album art in which Pino Scotto sang and, in part, on the poster, you can read the book “Standing Rock”, a monograph written by Norman Pino Zoia. Behind, above the car waiting for us instead of a video documenting the phases of the recording of “Like Us”, one of two new songs on this album. On the back of the gas station, you can see live performance in which Pino proposes “Queen of Hearts”, a song that is part of his solo project, “The desperate cry of 1000 bands.”
A nice genius-bouncer will take care ‘of us to leave the room …
