Personal Profile

Fabio Grassadonia

Since 1999 Fabio Grassadonia and Antonio Piazza have worked as writers, development consultants and acquisition consultants for major Italian production companies, such as Fandango and Filmauro of Aurelio De Laurentiis.
Last summer Fabio and Antonio had their debut as directors with the short film RITA, working with a ten years old blind girl in the main role of the film. The short film was shot in the problematic and fascinating Palermo neighbourhood of Arenella, the same place where they will soon shoot their first feature film SALVO. The script of Salvo was selected for Berlinale Talent Campus 08, Binger Filmlab 09 and awarded a Special Mention by the Jury of the Solinas Prize, the most important Italian script-award. Last November Salvo got also the Production Award of TorinoFilmLab.
