I started studying like actor and I'm graduated in Rome at the "Blue Theater School of Beatrice Bracco", I participated in numerous films as protagonist or co-star, including "L'estate di Martino" by Massimo Natale, presented exclusively at the Rome Film Festival, and "Ti Stramo" by Gianluca Sodaro and Pino Insegno, excellent box office success.
In 2011 I founded the production company DIERO FILM with my partner Corso Codecasa and together we have produced ten short films and worked as executive production in a lot of national and international films. With our works we have won numerous awards in the world, like 2020 David di Donatello' s winner shortfilm “Inverno” directed by Giulio Mastromauro.
