Filmmaker and Photographer, Francesco studied film and philosophy. He started out his career assisting photographers such as Bruce Weber or Peter Lindbergh. He quickly made the A-List of photographers, signing covers for high-class magazines capturing a wide range of contemporary pop culture icons including actors Robert De Niro, Cate Blanchett, Scarlett Johansson, Beyonce, Sting, Keith Richards, Jay-Z, Asap Rocky, Jeff Koons and Marina Abramović to name a few. In his films, Francesco takes pleasure in breaking formats, and loves to trigger emotion in telling strong stories with the power to lodge themselves in your mind for a while. Francesco bounces from one media to another (commercials, cinema, documentaries or music videos) and his main interests are in making us think deeply. His film documentary Franca: Chaos and Creation has been awarded by a Nastro d’Argento award and has been released on Netflix and Amazon.
