Film Director | Screenwriter | Producer
I was born in Arezzo in 1977 and graduated in Cinema History and Critics at the University of Florence where I live and work, writing, producing and directing documentaries and communication campaigns, commissioned by public institutions and bank foundations.
I directed several short movies, including "La Fuga", written with the novelist Marco Vichi and screened in the exhibition "Viaggio a Nord-Ovest" (Castello dell’Acciaiolo, Florence), which was visited by more than 10.000 people in two months.
I directed four art documentaries hosted by Antonio Paolucci, director of the Vatican Museums, among which "Il Tempo di Michelangelo", dedicated to the Sistine Chapel and the Medici family chapels in San Lorenzo Church in Florence.
Interested in the social issues, I have worked for a year in the jails of Florence and Ferrara with some prisoners that became the main characters of the documentary "Oggi voglio parlare".
For the documentary project "Florence, the Consul and Me", I was admitted to Archidoc a documentary workshop run by La fémis (Paris), sponsored by the MEDIA Programme, and selected to the pitching forums: Verzio DocLab (Budapest), Italian DocScreenings (Florence) and When East Meets West (Trieste). I was also selected to the Dragon Forum workshop in Krakow. The film is in the last stage of development.
In October 2013, I directed for the Jerusalem Opera the video-art elements used to stage "Don Giovanni" by Mozart.
In 2015 I produced and directed 12 documentaries exhibited in the new Great Museum of the Duomo, Florence, curated by Mons. Timothy Verdon.
Currently I'm developing two feature films and shooting a documentary about the 1966 flood in Florence, which will show rare and previously unseen color footage in 8mm and 16mm.
