Location: Naples, Italy
Italians do it better, at least in terms of big rooms, and nowhere more than Naples, the country’s undisputed techno capital. Duel has been kicking out beats in the Bagnoli area of town since 2005 when this former N.A.T.O. military base church-turned-cinema was reborn with a dancefloor. Shuttered from March 2020 due to the pandemic, it has since been used for education and art projects, but reopens in October 2021 with a new nine-piece projection system, intimidating Loud Professional rig, plastic-free policy, and residents roster including Clemente Loffredo, SDN, and Rebecca Delle Piane.
