Giovanni Sorrentino

Roma, Italy

Born near Naples, after high school he moved to the Read moreUK, where he specialized in Italian Neorealism and European Cinema, getting a degree at the University of Reading with a dissertation on the cinema of Italian director and actor, Nanni Moretti. After he moved back to Italy, he wrote articles for cinema magazines, until he began a freelance reporter for a minor satellite broadcasting company. His next step was a contract with the most important Italian private broadcasting company Mediaset, where he worked as a producer for a sport and showbiz-themed daily program. 
Curious about the evolution of Italian society in the new millennium, he did extensive research into Italian youth, in particular education and the employment system. This led to a decade-long collaboration with Okkupati, a weekly program about job opportunities and work policies on the Italian public television channel, Rai Tre. After just a few months of working as a reporter and filmmaker, he became head producer and creative director, deciding content and hosting his own on-air video segment.
As a TV format creator, he recently worked for companies such as Zodiak Media group and Rai World.
He lives in Rome with his best friend and wife Federica, and continues to pursue his passions: cinema, Italian regional cuisine and sport. He never loses his analytical approach, unless he is watching matches played by Napoli football team, of which he is an enthusiastic fan.
