What did they ask from us

We were entrusted with the task of developing a web application dedicated to the game FantaSanremo, making it versatile so that it can be used for other games in this genre such as FantaEurovision and to take care of the interface and user experience on the application, adding new functions compared to the previous version.

What we have done

We are thrilled to have contributed to the success of a project dedicated to the Sanremo Festival that involved millions of users.

We brought the project to life using wireframe and wireflow to create a mockup of the new interface. Thanks to the MUI library, we created customized components following the new style guidelines.

Fantasanremo was created from a backend exposing REST APIs developed using the NestJS framework and serverless, an all-in-one solution that enables the creation of scalable applications with AWS lambdas.

The cloud infrastructure was created with Terraform, which, thanks to its compatibility with various providers such as AWS and Altas MongoDB, allowed us to manage everything with a single tool.

For the database our choice was Atlas MongoDB with a dedicated cluster that allowed us to manage more than 2M users and more than 4M created teams. 

For the frontend, we chose to develop a PWA with NextJS, taking advantage of the potential of SSG (Static Site Generation), which allowed us to use AWS S3 for hosting the web application with all the benefits this brought in terms of scalability.

For state management we have chosen to use Recoil which has now replaced redux in our development stack because of its simplicity of implementation as well as the fact that it manages caches by default.

— Storybook gave us the possibility of developing frontend components with comprehensive and visual documentation, simplifying the development and testing of these.

“The real revolution of the Festival is the FantaSanremo” (cit.

Bolket was instrumental in supporting the start-up and developing the FantaSanremo 2023 project!

Its cloud infrastructure follows a serverless approach that allowed us to focus on implementing new features that made the game more engaging with the ability to create multiple teams and participate in multiple leagues (public or private) with your own account and more.Using a serverless architecture, leaving infrastructure management tasks such as capacity provisioning and patching to AWS, we were able to reduce the operational burden and achieve significant cost savings by only paying for the resources actually consumed during the festival.

In addition, we were able to handle important traffic with 250 million pageViews in one month and more than 4 million teams created. Definitely more agility and less costs with AWS, thanks to which it has dedicated a space among the success stories.

Given the visibility of this project at national level, we focused on optimising the application to ensure fast response times, efficient loading and smooth navigation.

In addition to the growth recorded by the platform in 2023 with more than 4 million teams, these innovations will also bring excellent results in terms of user engagement and influencers, such as The jackal and Emma Marrone, who have created their own leagues to play with their followers with unique corporate team-building experiences, and much enthusiasm from sponsors such as Pandora, Ticketone, RAI public utility, Crodino and many more.
