VOLTERRA, 18 JULY 2014 —— Jeep® presents the ninth edition of “Teatro del Silenzio” (Theatre of Silence), the prestigious event that takes place in the striking setting of the hills of Lajatico, a hidden gem in the hinterland of Volterra. In this exclusive location, the amphitheatre created by the natural lie of the land is transformed – for one evening a year only – into a spectacular stage designed to host not only the world-renowned tenor Andrea Bocelli, but also international stars of all fields of performing arts, in a show that is not merely a concert, but a truly unique event.
Against a backdrop of stunning scenery created by a fascinating synergy between Art and Nature, the show proposes all forms of artistic expression: from dance and acting to classical and pop music, plus singing and sculpture.
This year, the date with Teatro del Silenzio – a project set up in 2006 by the world-renowned Maestro Andrea Bocelli who himself hails from Lajatico – will see a performance on the evening by Bocelli alongside a special guest of honour, the tenor Placido Domingo, accompanied by a 95-piece symphonic orchestra and a 60-member choir.
The Jeep brand could not miss the opportunity to be present in this exclusive context where an unspoilt landscape and unique venue are interpreted in an extraordinary way, transforming an ordinary end-of-July evening into an amazing show like no other. The legendary brand, synonymous with off-road driving and the epitome of passion, authenticity and exclusivity, will see its own core values perfectly expressed in the unique character of the event which, like Jeep models, is distinguished by the ability to transform an everyday experience like driving into an incredible adventure and to thrill its audience.
Grand Cherokee – Jeep’s flagship model, will be the official car of the event with a fleet of vehicles placed at the disposal of artists and guests for the entire evening. The brand’s reference model in terms of elegance, power, comfort, innovation and craftsmanship, with Grand Cherokee there is no compromise between legendary off-road capability and on-road driving manners. The most awarded Large SUV ever, Grand Cherokee represents the most elegant spirit of the Jeep range and delivers the luxury of a high-class car combined with the ability to go anywhere in maximum comfort.
In an area offering high visibility at the main entrance to the amphitheatre, visitors will have the chance to take a look at the new Jeep Renegade, the small SUV of the Jeep brand revealed at the last Geneva Motor Show. The first model in the history of Jeep to be built in Italy and the first vehicle produced jointly by Italy and the United States, Jeep Renegade will be sold in Europe with a range comprising four different trim levels – Sport, Longitude, Limited and Trailhawk – equipped with efficient turbo-diesel and petrol engines, in 4WD or front wheel drive configuration.
The audience will also be able to admire the new generation of Jeep Cherokee, the mid-size SUV expression of the new “Jeep Era”, that was introduced in the European market last April. On display in an exclusive area next to the parterre, Jeep Cherokee stands out thanks to its new exterior and interior design, enhanced on-road driving dynamics and handling, legendary 4×4 capabilities, advanced technological content, new levels of efficiency, comfort, on-board entertainment and safety.
