a few collaborations with NewYork-Italia. A bilingual magazine published in
NYC. You may find an interview with Gianni Amelio, or
with Bernardo Bertolucci
a personal long report for "Caffe'
Europa" (an internet magazine) on my own experience with Arthur Penn, titled "Six afternoons with Mr.
Penn". The American version of it, will be ready soon (that I said, but I
never got an American translation. It's too long and so too expensive).
2007 “le cose accadono” articolo
in 2 puntate per “L’attimo Fuggente”
I'm preparing myself writing a lot and doing short
movies, waiting for the right chance.
In the meanwhile I'm writing, writing and writing, to be always involved in new
"From 2000 up to June 2005 I've being writing, writing and rewriting my
screenplay "S.S. 597, Peldesemene" to make it as perfect as possible,
that I'd have directed. The plot was all about two Carabinieri’s killing.
It should have been a sort of an adventure/western/theatre kind of movie, set
in Sardinia Island. I took inspiration for the screenplay from a real story and
The above came out to be a dream fallen down in a big shit, because of many
many reasons. The first one was about production method, as usual in Italy. The
production company got a public grant of € 1.300.000,00 on the 2003
summer. The movie was supposed to be shot on may 2004. Waiting and waiting the
production company lost half of the budget. Then everything fell down.
I tried to change production company, but it was impossible.
So the dream turned to be a nightmare.
This is the answer to all those nice people who are still calling me to
collaborate to make the movie. It is over!
You may have a look of this 4' short movie I shot and edited on March 2005:
"Nuovo cinema mercato". It has been screened in Venice
at Casa degli autori on September 2005 together with other 7 short movies
collected in one bigger movie (the link will be ready soon).
On January 19th 2003, at Filodrammatici Theater in Milan, I did a reading of a
couple of 'one act plays' of mine, "Deformazione professionale" and
"Di niente", performed by Cloris Brosca and Sergio Pierattini.
It was very very nice working with those two great actors.
