Agostino Ferrente

Born in 1971 in Cerignola, Italy, Agostino Ferrente is an Italian director, screenwriter and producer. He launched the Pirata Produzioni Cinematografiche production company and is one of the founders of the “Apollo 11”, a collective which saved the historical Apollo cinema in Rome and turned it into one of the liveliest cultural centres of the city. As a result of this project, Ferrente made the documentary The Orchestra of Piazza Vittorio (2006) about an orchestra founded at the centre. He is one of the driving forces behind the creation of the Doc/it Award for documentaries, presented each year at the Venice Film Festival. In 2013, Le cose belle premiered in Venice, a film about ten years in the lives of young Neapolitans which he co-directed with Giovanni Piperno.
