Mini Bio (1)
Born in Paris, Flavio grew up between France and Italy, learning to speak both languages.
Between 1993 and 1999 he studied in France, at the International boarding school of Valbonne (C.I.V), where he achieved an International Baccalaureat and learned to speak English fluently.
In 2002 He graduated at Genoa's National Theatre Academy, and started to work with the Theatre's company as an actor and then as a director. His debut in theater was "Mother Courage" by Bertolt Brecht, where he also was assistant director. From then until 2005 he exclusively worked as an actor and stage director for Genoa's National Theatre whilst writing and directing his own plays.
In 2008 he appeared for the first time on screen co-starring in the movie "Talk to me about love", in the role of Tancredi directed by Silvio Muccino. His movie career then suddenly started, and in the same year he co-starred in the film "At a glance", directed by Sergio Rubini, and was cast in "The losers's blood", directed by Michele Soavi. He then co-starred in "Einstein", directed by Liliana Cavani, where he played the role of Eduard Einstein, the schizophrenic son of Albert Einstein.
In 2009 he participated, as leading actor, in the 66th Venice International Film Festival with three movies: "Tris di Donne e abiti nuziali" By Vincenzo Terraciano, "The red shadows" By Citto Maselli, and "I Am Love" directed by Luca Guadagnino, which was nominated for a Golden Globe and an Academy Award.
In the last 2 years, Flavio starred in the movie "Another World" Directed by S. Muccino and was a regular in the tv series "Police District". In 2011 he played the male leading Role in "Cinderella" (as Prince Charming), directed by C. Duguay.
While acting, Flavio produces his own movies, where he experiments in many ways the narrative possibilities of digital movie making. In 2010 he directed "A Quantum Butterfly Dream", a visual concept of a stream of consciousness where visual memories are modified by the subjectivity of the character who's telling them, and he is now editing "By My Side", his second indie movie, all shot in night time with no light setup.
