About me

author/director/actress/editor/boxing expert

up-date September 21st, 2020

Energy, initiative, positivity, creativity are my weapons. And determination. My problem? I don’ give in to compromise if the opponent is in bad faith. Usually I bend it to the corner, then I chase him/her and knock he/her down, and the obligation to surrender. What have I inherited from my boxing DNA? The reactivity to injustice.

…summertime isn’t over yet, we still free. – Sirmione (Garda Lake)

 

The castle of Sirmione, the caves of Catullus. How beautiful is our Lombardy! But do you like my flip & flops? I have two pairs, unsure of which color to wear, here they are both …
The native vineyards, the olive groves from Franciacorta, a triumph of flavor known throughout the world.

After a dip in Lake Moro, I dry myself sunflower among the sunflowers …

By bike along the Iseo Lake then, two km of steep uphill by bike, to reach Lake Moro. But wow …! A stretch of water immersed in the Bergamo Prelalps in Val Camonica.

Here towards Monte Isola, Lake Iseo. The weekends at the Lombard lakes, among the most beautiful in the world, my friends are the at the imbarcadero bar ready with the glass full of chilly white wine…It’s nice to have the birthday in august.

There are no big events to animate Milan’s summer 2020, as usually with the arrival of hot days. Here the Milano cinema museum has rediscovered the old cinemobile and enchants the nights with films in the courtyards of Milano.

We work in smart working. In June 2020 the Milan Darsena is deserted. As it has never been … I did a great job after all. The lockdown if possible allowed me more concentration. I shot exceptional shots in an unreal Milan as I believe most of my colleagues. Smart working in production and publishing is nothing new.


The mask is a mandatory also outdoor at least until July 15th, 2020.

April 2020, I’m on my Naviglio, the confinement with the obligatory mask does not prevent the jasmine of Milano, from spraying spring with their sweet scent …

On March 4th, 2020, the last bus, to return from Rome, before the lockdown in Lombardy. There are no trains, there are no planes … I had never travel Roma-Milano by bus. I would have done it on foot, I could not leave my Milano, my Lombardy Region alone …

I love my Milan in every detail. This cast iron fountain is a symbol, “the green dragon”, there are thousands distributed around the town.

Milan has always been nice and inclusive with anyone …

Milano is the most glamorous Made in Italy in the world, it’s in every corner of the town, here the Etro shop, one of my favorites, in Brera.

–  Here is my monologue against the system that explains my professional stalemate.
Will the system change? It seems so. Optimism is the key to reading my life.

If the Italian corrupt politics, it’s finally burned out and then there will be a real change- ha why do I quote the politic? Because in Italy all cultures, sport, cinema, communication, art, entertainment, are financed by politics-.
So, If the change will materializes I can hope that you will soon see in theatrical release and TV screens my docu-film IL FIGHTER D’ITALIA GIANCARLO GARBELLI -boxing is violent but violence is not boxing-
The protagonist is GIANCARLO GARBELLI, our best Italian Boxing Champion ever, between the greatest in the world. Rich in witnesses. It’s about sport and human culture, history. And profound sensitivity. I wanted to make an indelible contribution to the History of the Great Boxing World.
I’m the author-director-editor and producer, supported by qualified technicians.
It took 16 years of battles, work, debts to make it possible. When it will be release …? Of course I need my country Italy, which is silent at the moment. Is it a political affair….? For me it is about cultural freedom, without vetoes and hypocrisies to pay tribute to the protagonist of our history.

-This video has nothing to do with my docu-film, it’s just a happy birthday for 80 years of my Dad Garbelli. I edited instantly. At the moment I can’ t show you more.

– I’m working on this docuserie with over 400 Boxing Champions, the best of all around the planet. Here I explain the idea. To update, please visit the page – DOCUSERIES-

-A true Lioness! We born 08 08 are evergreen! 🥊🥊😜…or at least we try with the help of healthy habits….Thank you God, to keep healthy all my friends too. In particular the ones that are more fragile.
