VALERIO FESTI: PRESIDENT AND FOUNDER – BIO
VALERIO FESTI is the great Italian ar1st that since the early eigh1es gains interna?onal fame by
revamping the Italian tradi?on of the fes?ve event, choosing the sky and the most varied seUngs all
over the world as the stage for his shows.
His passion is fostered in the confined space of libraries, while reading accounts of elaborate
renaissance fes1vi1es and ingenious baroque theatricals. In 1977 he graduates from Bologna
University having completed a thesis on the art of celebra?on and fes?ve events.
Fes?ve space became the frame for his experiments and performance an essen?al part of his life.
He founds Studio Fes1, and his collabora1on with Monica Maimone begins: a life-1e bond that endures
to this day.
He draws on the tradi?ons of the Renaissance and the Baroque to the ephemeral, yet historically and
culturally rich, splendour of these events aDains an unprecedented communica1ve power. A wide range
of celebra1ons are shown for what they really are: catalysts of the collec1ve imagina1on,
overwhelming manifesta1ons of the democracy of beauty, giving it original, cap1va1ng and memorable
form. There is every day 1me and then there is 1me for celebra1ons. This is when we seek to shape the
world as we would like it and when Valerio Fes1 reveals the space as it could and should be.
