SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGER AND PHOTOGRAPHER
Born in the ancient Capua on 28/05/1991, happily resides in Bologna. I've achieved the Master's Degree in Cinema Televisione e Produzione Multimediale (CITEM) with a specialization in History of the Cinema and Cinema Restoration. I've achieved a master in Social Media Marketing at the Studio Samo. Exceptional Blogger, I've collaborated for years with the festival Le Giornate del Cinema Muto as photographer and Social Media Reporter and during the Cinema Ritrovato Film Festival of Bologna I've been for years a lasting volunteer. Responsible of Social Media Marketing for Photoplay Productions, Aimaproject, OUTsiders Webzine, Media Archive History. Freelance photographer, I hopes to affirm as a director and director of photography and I don't pull myself back in front of any new project. Love listen music and particularly movie soundtracks; my great passion is silent cinema and the film festivals. I dream a road trip on Route 66, to astonish in front of the japanese panorama of the Fuji Mountain, to swim on the coral barrier and, a beautiful day, to admire the aurora borealis in Iceland. For now I'm satisfied to walk in my beloved Piccadilly Circus, where I return every time possible.
