Director Biography - Marco Arnemi

Marco Arnemi was born in Cantù on August 13, 1984. He began his career as a florist in the family business, which has a long history of practicing the same profession. Not content with what he had learned so far, he decided to deepen his knowledge by joining various companies and specializing in floral set design, interior decoration, and luxury objects.

A change of course offered him the opportunity to fulfill a long-held desire. In May 2012, he passed the selection process and joined the team of entertainers at Samarcanda. He became a funny and sunny character, as well as a contact animator, and also took his first steps into the world of theater.

He discovered that with his funny and sunny demeanor, he could bring smiles and lots of fun. Public relations are his trump card: he has a strong ability to involve everyone around him with spontaneity and a touch of madness, from friends to colleagues and even guests in tourist resorts. He was a candidate in 2012/14 and winner in 2016 of the "The Best" award for entertainers.

It is thanks to this wealth of experience that he was spotted by Andrea Bauce, an emerging director, who was intrigued by his comedic talent. Therefore, he decided to submit him to a casting for a new TV project he had been working on for some time. The meeting between the two was an excellent start to Marco's career in the television world. He was, in fact, cast as the lead actor in the TV format "I Cuochi Pasticcioni", playing the role of Ciccio, a clumsy chef who causes chaos in a peaceful kitchen. The first edition of the format was successful, to the point that the second edition is now airing on SKY and Digital Terrestrial. In his latest TV project, he played the role of "INTRUDER/PENALTY" & Disguises in "La Prova del Cuoco" on Rai1.

For him, there are no secret ingredients, only spontaneity, feet on the ground, and head in the clouds. Typical of artists.
