The Daily Telegraph about the 2012 show
“From a control centre on the bridge, fireworks director Fortunato "Forch" Foti will oversee a team of 45 crew using 16 laptops to fire a barrage of colour - and 10,000 cues - all synchronised to a musical score co-written by Minogue based on the theme of Embrace.”
“The fireworks are made from about 40 to 50 different chemicals using secret "recipes" or compositions that have been passed down through the generations of the Foti family.”
Mr Foti is a seventh generation fireworks maker with the family business started in 1793.
