The Italian Institute of Culture is honored to present an exhibition by the legendary photographer Fabrizio Gianni, with a stellar career that spans 50 years. He began in cinema working as assistant director for Sergio Leone on “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” before transitioning to fashion photography. His background in cinema significantly influenced his fashion photography, where he masterfully created narratives in still format. He has worked for some of the world’s top fashion magazines such as Elle, Vogue, GQ, Harper’s Bazaar, and Figaro, to name just a few.  Throughout his remarkable career, Fabrizio Gianni has photographed numerous celebrities such as Charlize Theron, Andy McDowell, Antony Hopkins, Keanu Reeves, to name but a few.

Fabrizio Gianni was born in Rome, one of four children, his father was the head of an international chemical company; at the age of 18, he was sent to Zurich to study chemical engineering. A year spent working in a German laboratory for a chemical company convinced him this was not the road for him; he returned to Rome the following year to study Political Science at the University of Rome and began working as a trainee journalist.

By the end of 1960, he had enrolled in a film school in Rome. He started out as a freelance writer, co-writer, assistant director, second unit director, casting director, and location director: his diverse roles in the film industry paved the way for him to work with some of Italy’s finest directors, including Sergio Leone, Mauro Bolognini and Giuliano Montaldo, among other notable names.

We are delighted to share the extraordinary work of Fabrizio Gianni with the public and celebrate his significant contribution to the world of photography and cinema, within the framework of the 7th edition of “Fare Cinema”.
