 regista andrea frazziANDREA FRAZZI

Andrea Frazzi (Florence, 1944) is an Italian director and screenwriter.
He made his debut in 1972, together with his twin brother Antonio, as a theater director. Among the comedies staged four hands, we point out the two most important with the Cooperative Company Buonarroti of Florence: Victor or the children in power (with Franco Difrancescantonio, Marcellina Ruocco, Flavio Andreini and Silvia Luzzi); Don Giovanni (Di Francescantonio, Andreini, Ruocco, Sergio Ciulli). The setting up of the American Nash's Rain Wizard was also very thick, done with the Italian Drama of Fiume (now Croatia) in 1976.
The collaboration with Rai began in 1975, and will lead to the production of numerous programs and fiction, among which will be directed by Two Mothers for Rocco, L'avvocato delle donne and Don Milani - Il priore di Barbiana. The first experience as director of a feature film will take place with Il cielo cade, a film based on the homonymous novel by Lorenza Mazzetti.
