About the artist
Studio Festi, Valerio Festi
Porte Celesti is a project by Valerio Festi for Festi Group. His passion for open-air theatre was fostered in the confined space of libraries where accounts of elaborate renaissance festivities and ingenious baroque theatricals are stored. Festive space became the frame for his experiments and the theatre a daily spectacle. For forty years Valerio Festi has been steeped in the design and production of this art: with the support of highly talented craftsmen, technicians and artists give marvelous and undreamed-of shape to open-air celebrations: a Concert for fireworks brings music and pyrotechnics into perfect harmony, fabulous floats and machinery create unimagined scenes and architectural illuminations redefine the map of the city, revealing it hidden secrets.
