Il Grande Piano


Il Grande Piano is a musical keyboard created in 2011 by the show company Faber Teatro, based in Cremona, Italy. Made by Manuel Benyacar, a violin maker from Buenos Aires, who has been living in Italy for 30 years. After having built some violins, he started working in robotics and electronics. Combining all his passions, in 2011 he created his first hand-crafted Grande Piano, inspired by a scene from the movie BIG with Tom Hanks (1988), in which the actor plays a song with his feet dancing on a floor piano inside the FAO Schwartz toy store in New York. Since 2011 the concerts on il Grande Piano have become increasingly numerous and, in recent years, thanks to some viral videos on social networks (more than 440 million total views) the company has started performing in Europe and all around the world.

It is a huge MIDI keyboard placed on the floor that can be played with your feet. In the configuration of 4 and a half octaves, the Grande Piano measures 7.4m. Il Grande Piano is completely modular and its dimensions can adapt to the available space. It is the ideal show for all kinds of events. It is an instrument that involves different aspects: music and musical didactics, dance, physical movement, coordination, memory and group work (it can be played by several people at the same time).
