Featured Work   


 Times have changed! 

Post COVID reality needs no more "divas", but fast, creative,"light minded", flexible people. Now, more than ever, market needs experience and know-how

to achieve good and original productions with light weight costs.

Tools are easy to find: it is the idea and knowing where to put the money 

that matters. It is the so called "eye"...  And luckily I've still got two :)

Born in Tuscany, I now live in Milan. 

My passion for film brought me to study in the US. After which I established a busy career working with some of the biggest clients

and agencies in Italy, Europe

and the Middle-East. 

I started as a music video director (Zucchero, Franco Battiato, Ligabue, Midge Ure and many others) developing a certain experience

in “guerrilla” and “creative” productions.

These days I am mostly a commercials and film director,

but I also love shooting tv promos and web films. 

My feature films “Neverlake” (RAI),

“Basta Poco” and “Killer Mosquitos” (Sky) all toured the festival circuits internationally with positive critical response.

In between shoots I write ideas and scripts for features and TV shows

(currently three projects w.i.p.).
