I was 20 years old when I spent my first year of University producing parties and theater instead of studying.
After University, while waiting for compulsory military service, and planning to move to London, I indulged myself with a theater course where i met Theater Master, Carlo Formigoni.
That year was1995, and my plans were completely changed forever. I became an actor in the theater company Cerchio di Gesso where I worked for 14 years.
By 2010 the company grew to manage a 300-seat theater and many national tours. We employed 25 people and I worked under a good contract. But my old dream of being an Italian living abroad suddenly appeared again, so I left the company and moved to Berlin!
In 2011, I found myself in Mitteleurope, I didn’t know any German. My English sounded like “Don Vito Corleone’s one!” and I spent my nights in a 20-bed hostel dormitory.
Already slim, I lost 5 kg. I started taking German lessons and volunteering for the artistic project, Mica Moca.
In a few months I was again enjoying the theater scene. I self produced a monologue inspired by Dino Buzzati that reached an audience of 90 Italians by way of self-made postcards. Not bad! A couple of blogs and magazines wrote about me and I started making my first contacts in town.
Time has passed since then, and now that I am in my forties, I can affirm that:
Restarting from zero is exciting, studying is the key to success, and presenting theater teaches you how to fall and rise.
Throughout the years, stories are what I have come to love the most and will be featured prominently in my next projects.
I’m still living in Berlin with projects running in Europe as well as in Italy.
