Since 1990, GROUPE F has travelled the world. From Athens to Barcelona, from Turin to Valencia, from London to Singapore, it has brought to life the monuments of the past and present, breathing fresh life into the art of firework displays. Far from embracing the age-old pyrotechnic tradition, the group has chosen a contemporary language to bring visions and landscapes to space, so enabling everyone to appropriate exceptional monuments and history.
The landscapes created by light, flames or fire, are simultaneously natural, supernatural and artificial: they express a vision of real and possible worlds, as interpreted by GROUPE F, in a never refuted desire to create an unknown or unpredictable moment in extraordinary places that are well known and revisited.
