Radio Mercato Centrale


radio lab by Alessio Bertallot

The radio lab that plays, plays, plays

Creation, art and sound fills Alessio Bertallot's radio lab at Mercato Centrale Milan.

Alessio Bertallot is a DJ, musician, journalist, and TV and radio host. Since the nineties, he has been a central figure in the world of music, known for experimentation and as an expert selector and reference point in the discovery of new perspectives.
His new project for the Mercato in Milan is an artistic-radio installation, in which short instrumental discs with a smooth sensation alternate with soundscapes of Milan that are, in essence, “sound postcards” of the city.
Radio Mercato Centrale becomes an ambient art-radio with its first installation focusing on the sounds of the city, understood as an artistic object. In this way, radio acts as the narrator for the “sound skyline” of Milan, for its voices and acoustic footprint, with the aim of giving listeners awareness of the key role sounds plays in life.
The radio lab at Mercato Centrale Milan becomes a space for creation, meeting, and the exchange of ideas and viewpoints. Designed to be minimal and neutral, it forms a type of platform in which the artist and the messages they want to convey are always at the centre.

Here, music has a completely different sound.
