      Italian film critic Concita Occhipinti was moved to say: "Morassutti is a particular actor with masterful vocal and acting abilities and he is very close to Giancarlo Giannini since he studied with him at the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia".
      The South-american Journalist and theatre critic Ernesto Pérez saw him capture the essence of a tense drama: "In staging Madre sin Panuelo the young Morassutti demonstrates his gift of enlivening a claustrophobic scene".
      The director Vito Pagano was gushing in his praise when he said: "Giovanni Morassutti as the leading actor in my movie Amigdala performed the miracle. In the long shot monologue he gave me what I wanted. Actually he gave me a better performance than i had imagined".

      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.

      The film that has influenced me the most is probably Gus Van Sant's My Own Private Idaho (1991), with whom I had the chance to work while in the US. Seeing that movie during a time of my life in which I was exploring my sexuality and looking at the work of River Phoenix made me dream about acting in a film.

      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.
      -Giovanni Morassutti
      I thank Giancarlo Giannini for having taught me how to use my voice.
