Who we are
Nuovi Paesaggi Urbani is a production company; a workshop of ideas in continuous evolution.
It began as a consulting company for the urban renewal of places that have fallen into urban decay. It then evolved into a production company specialized in documentaries, independent theater and cultural projects. Nuovi Paesaggi Urbani has two partners: Nicolò Bassetti and Gaia Morrione.
Founder of Nuovi Paesaggi Urbani, documentary filmmaker, landscape expert and urban explorer. His work focuses on the identity and memory of places that have fallen into urban decay. He has curated and supervised projects both big and small in the Ruhr valley, in Marghera (Venice), Rome, Milan and Naples where he created and produced the Neapolis Rock Festival at the abandoned Italsider steel plant in Bagnoli. From his original idea together with the director Gianfranco Rosi, Sacro GRA was created, an urban storytelling documentary film that won the Golden Lion at the 70th Venice International Film Festival. He is the director of the independent documentaries, Magnifiche Sorti, a story in images of the World Expo, and Nel Mio Nome (Into My Name), which was selected for the Panorama section at the Berlin Film Festival 2022.
