About me
I am a Master’s Degree graduate in Cinema, Television and Multimedia Production from the Università di Roma Tre in Rome, Italy, with also a Bachelor (Hons) Degree in Film Studies from the University of Surrey in the UK. ​ I was always the kind of a person who searches and learns everything about a film without even seeing it first and then after seeing it, the search would continue in a deeper level. When I liked a film I would "carry" it with me for a long time. I was a child who started seing films in a different way at the age of 14; when I decided that I wanted to become a filmmaker. Up to this day I am the same person as regards the cinematic world. In cinema I see a world bigger than the one I am living in; an impossible world that through "magic" becomes possible to create, so it becomes real. And that is why I want to be a part of it. Films always had a huge impact on me, so I decided that I wanted to be the one creating those feelings for others. ​ A notebook, a digital and a film camera are the things I hope I'll always have in my backpack. Traveling the world, shooting films, taking photographs and living life as poetically and creativily as I can. That has always been my goal and that, I hope, would always be. ​ As Henry Miller beautifully explains: "To make living itself an art, that is the goal."
