About me

His career in the Entertainment Industry started at very early age. At age of nine, he got involved in PontederaTeatro and the Workcenter of the wonderful Jerzy Grotowski and Thomas Richards. Being greatly inspired by theatre, Gabriele followed his passion and went on to stage several productions throughout Italy. In 2000 Gabriele left Pisa, his hometown to study Entertainment at University of Bologna that therefore lead him to continue his studies at the prestigious Cinecittà Studios in Rome with a master in Cinema and Tv. In 2001 he got the big opportunity to work as an intern in Steven Spielberg‘s Minority Report, filmed in US, Washington DC. Four years later he joined the successful Italian TV talent show called Amici di Maria de Filippi as PA. (CANALE 5- Mediaset Group). In 2006 he started his career as a music video director which lead him to win an award at the Videoclip Phone Festival, held by Warner Music Italy. His music videos will be broadcasted frequently on MTV Italy and across the main TV channels. In the same year Gabriele had the chance to work as set PA for the BBC/HBO Rome II TV series filmed in Cinecittà Studios. From 2009 to 2011, Gabriele took a position as Teacher of Music Video Production in Cinecitta’ Studios Academy, where he taught all aspects of music video and television production to students aged from 18-25 alongside a talented team of entertainment industry professionals.
