About Alessio

Born in Gaeta – 1981. He attended the art school where he was influenced by
studies of visual art, architecture, art direction, plastic and comic arts. Just then he
started doing his first amateur experiences in the field of theatre and film direction.
He continued his studies specializing with a DAMS degree (art, music and show
disciplines), becoming Film and Television Programme Director. During university
he followed successfully the Direction Workshop of director Peter Del Monte
(“Giulia e Giulia”, “Controvento”, “Etoile”), the film script workshop of
scriptwriter Francesco Piccolo (“Habemus Papa”, “Il Caimano”, “My Name is
Tanino”), and the editing workshop of film editor Marco Spoletini (“Gomorra”,
“Reality”, “Così è la vita”, “Gorbaciof”). He attended and passed with full marks
the direction courses of director and teacher Vito Zagarrio (Tre Giorni d’Anarchia”,
“La Donna della Luna”), studying in depth the present-day US film and television.
His graduation thesis was entitled “Red One. New technologies and employments in
film aesthetics” where he expressed and investigated all his experiences and
knowledges, bearing them out scientifically. He had acquired them working with
enthusiasm in the field of film technologies with effects on aesthetics and film
production. His thesis allowed him to start a collaboration with the teacher Christian
Uva, carrying out some Letio Magistralis for him. Besides he made his contribution
to the new edition of the book “Il digitale nella regia” (“Digital filmmaking”; Dino
Audino Editore), by which he could interview the director of photography Mauro
Marchetti (“Mary per Sempre”, “Nel nome del Male”). In addition to his university
career, he achieved a professional grow with different independent products,
experimentations and works in the field of film and television production. He
directed various important Italian commercials with agencies like
Roncaglia&Wijkander, from the advertising drive named “Every One” of “Save the
Children” (whose commercial is played by Flavio Insinna, Fabrizio Frizzi, Nicolas
Vaporidis, Giobbe Covatta and Cristiana Filangeri, shown by RAI television
networks and home film circuit), to the drive for the energy efficiency ordered by
the Region of Lazio (Italy), with a commercial named “Ecommedia”, played by
Giobbe Covatta and distributed in the home film circuit. It advertised commercial

After a short collaboration with Lello Arena, theatre actor and film-maker
(“Ricomincio da Tre”, “Morto Troisi, Viva Troisi”, “Chiari di Luna”), for
whom he directed an episode of his own show, he directed the ten episodes sitcom
“I Fratelli Porchetta”, with Maurizio Martufello and Gigi Miseferi. He directed
various irreverent and parodist TV and web programs, including “Le Cronache del
Gallo” where he made fun of Carlo Verdone, Paola Cortellesi, Margherita Buy,
Rocco papaleo, Ricky Tognazzi, Alessandro Gassman), and “TgShow”. He
collaborated as first assistant on the making of various short films and videos. He
directed the videoclip "La direzione" for the rock band Entropia (preview on MTV
New Generation channel), “Ora” for the singer Brilha produced by Sanbiagio
Produzioni of Amedeo Minghi and the videoclip “La Più Bella del Mondo” for the
singer Giacomo Docimo. But his main path is the fiction movie. He directed various
shorts, including “Deja Vu”, “La Rete” and co-directed “Big Trouble”. “La Rete”
was the true passage to the genre cinema. The thriller/horror with Michela Bruni and
Marylin Gallo represents collaboration and friendship with the director of
photography Giuliano Tomassacci with whom he produced and scripted “Report
