A MULTILAYERED STORY

Born in Rome in 1974, based in Los Angeles since 2013. Devoting myself to art, writing and film making.

«CINEMA STUDIES»

Master’s degree in humanities, specializing in cinema, with a thesis on the cinema by Gianni Amelio, at the Università degli Studi Roma Tre (Rome, Italy). I spend a year at the Université Paris 8, to further my studies in cinema, theater, photography and editing. In the late nineties, I attend several seminars on drama and dance, led by world-renowned masters such as Eugenio Barba and Pina Bausch.

IT IS MATTER OF …

In 1997, I start working as a camera operator in Italian film productions, later as 1st Assistant director for Laura Betti, Sergio Citti and Anna Maria Tatò: three great personalities of the Italian cinema. Then I begin my experience as freelance filmmaker, creating several short films, documentaries and commercials.

TIME TO SWITCH

In 2002, I have the opportunity to make a change. Since I was a teen, sailing had always been my “second skin”. I buy a sailing boat and choose to devote myself to the sea and sailing. Two years later I embark as an officer in the merchant navy, and then continue to travel the world at sea as Captain of diverse and prestigious private sailing yachts.

TODAY

In 2016, I produce and direct the documentary Riccardo Mannelli: Notes for the Reconstruction of Beauty, which inspires me to organize and curate an international exhibition, under the same title; held at the Building Bridges Art Exchange gallery, in the Arts Center of Bergamot Station in Santa Monica, California. I am currently finishing a film adaptation based on the novel Mr. Gwyn, by Alessandro Baricco.
