Director Biography - Francesca Stangoni

I was born in Naples in 1976. In 1998 I graduated at the University in Foreign Languages (Chinese and English). I studied acting in some small local theatres in Naples, before moving to Ancona in 2000, in order to attend a position as Export Dept Manager for a private company.
I changed different jobs before being hired by a big company leader in telecommunications, where I still work as buyer and export dept back-office.
In 2015 I re-started to study acting and attended a 2 years' course in a local theatre not far from the place where I live. In 2017 I arranged my first show at theatre, involving few artists with different arts. Then in 2019, I arranged and performed my new theatre event, an original dance-theatre musical involving more than 40 artists: from musicians, to dancers, to actors and dubbers.
Because of Covid, I stopped playing at the theatre and addressed my attention to the movie business. In September 2020 I projected and played my first short movie, here introduced, called PROVE DI POTERE. IN April 2021 I shooted my second short movie called IL SOGNO DI KOFI, an emotional video documentary talking about the hoplesse journey of an African refugéé
