About Festa Controller

Festa Controller is a mobile app that was developed to serve as a platform for combining music controllers and light controllers for music and lights operators. The goal was to make the information as simple and easy to understand for the user as possible.

The event takes place in Venice's canals and is a festival that takes place in motion as the boats sail through the canals, with music and lights coming from speakers and lights hanging on the buildings that surround the canals.
