Studio Festi is an Italian artistic project and production centre bringing into being shows and grand installations. Founded in 1982 by Valerio Festi and Monica Maimone, Studio Festi operates from its main offices in Velate (Varese, Italy), its workshop in Venegono Superiore (Varese) and, in 2010, it set up a branch in São Paulo, Brazil.

Studio Festi's artistic activity covers three main areas:

  • outdoor shows
  • installations of lights, also called architectures of light due to their unique features
  • concerts for fireworks with live orchestra

The poetry characterising Studio Festi's work is linked to a reinterpretation of traditional city festivals through the invention of stage machines that take inspiration from the Italian Baroque and through the representation of ancient rituals like that of the Italian "parata" (parade).[1][2]

Studio Festi has organized large-scale celebrative events in many Italian cities as well as internationally.[3][4]
