Fortunata Apicella

Fortunata Apicella




SeriesLab Italia Participant 2017


Fortunata Apicella was born in 1992, in Biella, a small town near the Alps. Her parents come from “Costiera Amalfitana”, so she grew up in a continuous comparison of ways of thinking and different stories. Stories that she has been listening to for all her life in her family’s restaurant.
At the age of nineteen she moved to Turin. She studied Philosophy for almost two years, but she quit in order to follow her dreams: a Master’s Degree in Storytelling and Performing arts at Scuola Holden, studing Screenwriting, Tv Series and Creative Writing for two years.
In 2017 Fortunata was accepted to National Film School (Centro sperimentale di Cinematografia) in Rome, where she’s attending the Screenplay Course.
