Mattia was born 35 years ago in Italy. His approach to filmmaking is the result of 10 years working as an arthouse cinema projectionist, an architect, a storyboard artist, a set designer and finally directing both independent and commercial content around the world for brands and labels such as Brainfeeder Films, Coachella Valley Festival, Vans and Ninja Tune.
His shortfilms have been screened at festivals such as Cannes and Raindance.
As a director of projects across Europe, the Middle East and the US, Mattia learned to perform within different cultural contexts and to work with a wide range of budgets, crews and ideas, continuously expanding his vision towards a fluid style influenced by both popular and experimental language.

LÜRZER'S ARCHIVE, the prestigious bi-monthly magazine for the advertising industry has just included Untitled Project among other 54 film campaigns worldwide.
Untitled Project is a project produced by Fiumani, the production company I co-founded with my two brothers Filippo and Lorenzo. Filippo is a graphic artist and the film features some of his street art. Lorenzo, a music producer, composed the film soundtrack and curated the sound design. I filmed and edited it.
The film had found support from VICE Portugal, who also did an interview about Filippo's work and our new-born company Fiumani. It was very well received and today we are proud to see it being published in Lürzer's Archive, a magazine we've always considered one of the very best for the advertising industry.
We are especially stunned to see Fiumani share this space with production companies who created content for brands such as Apple, Spotify and Ikea, to name a few. In a world of brands, branded content is a message that can change the world. We hope to see more realities like these chose a social/environmental message and we will be ready to do our part.
