The Grimani name is not new in the world of transcendent entertainment experiences.
The Grimanis of 17th– century Venice commissioned the design and construction of the city’s largest, most luxurious theater, Teatro Giovanni Gristomo. Leading composers and playwrights of the late Renaissance enthralled audiences with their extraordinary creative vision. Patrons called the theater, “a true kingdom of marvels…with magnificent dimension.”
Fast-forward three centuries to Marin County, California. Here, Anthony Grimani applied his considerable creative and technical vision to bring audiences a spellbinding digital entertainment experience in large-scale home cinemas.
Anthony got together with audio engineer and inventor Manny LaCarrubba in Manny’s lab in 2013, and together they created the revolutionary home theater audio system that would do Anthony’s ancestors proud. CinemaOne Audio Ensemble, developed by Manny in only six months, is one of the only systems capable of truly delivering on the artistic vision of the musicians, recording artists, filmmakers, and sound designers of the ultra, high-definition era.
The company is currently working on a highly advanced luxury home cinema video solution.
