Find a good teacher, don't betray yourself to succeed and be a better person before being a better actor.
I thank Giancarlo Giannini for having taught me how to use my voice.


Ellen Stewart has been a very important figure in my life. She had so much to say about art and theater but most of all she showed me that love is the most powerful tool in life.
Wine making is an artistic creation in which you deal with a variety of styles, colors, and inspiration therefore good wine, like good art, can evoke emotions, sensations and create an experience which leaves a lasting impression.
  • Personalmente, il Processo Organico Creativo mi ha aiutato a scoprire che tipo di attore desidero essere; ma questo è un processo che va oltre la recitazione, poiché mi ha messo nella condizione di capire quello che voglio fare della mia vita e di impegnarmi per concretizzarlo.
  • For me personally, The Organic Creative Process helped me to discover what kind of actor I want to be; but this is a process that goes beyond acting. It actually revealed to me what I want to do in my life and that I have to work hard to make it real.

Giovanni was very serious studying in New York and suffered a lot I think. When my work really, really has value is not just somebody who is learning how to act is someone who is actually discovering himself and their own creative process and i think that Giovanni is one of those people where that was what happened.~ John Strasberg.
