I am not sure why some of us become film directors, perhaps it's just something we have inside, a voice that wants to speak out. I haven't found out yet.

I started working in audiovisuals as an Assistant Director, learning from many seasoned pros as I went along. I know the Set life enough to both love and hate it at the same time, just like with any real love story. In 2012 with my partners Ramona Mismetti and Stefano De Felici I founded SEE MARS , a studio that works to bring together live-action, digital and stop-motion animation. Each project is always a creative, technical and handcrafted challenge.

I don't think I have a particular kind of project, or a specific category, that represents me, but I know that each type of project I will tackle will have a little piece of my vision, something heartfelt and unique.

Truth is, I like to tell stories through images, to imagine ordinary and extraordinary worlds. I believe that, in this reality of doubt in which we live in nowadays, it is right to cultivate, with determination, our own certainties. I embrace this belief with a broad smile.
