Rocco Giurato

artistic direction

Rocco Giurato has worked for over 15 years in Italian cinema, reporting since 2000 on all the major international festivals, from editorial intern on the Tg1 culture programs to full professional status, handling big and small assignments, from the web to the print media, from TV to radio. Currently he co-directs the ‘NRCinemanews’ agency, for which he has coordinated video news reports for numerous national publications: the 2014 OSCAR awarded to Paolo Sorrentino, Cannes for the Palme d'Or awarded to Alice Rohrwacher, etc. The personal and professional love of his life is for great cinema, which, combined with a certain tenacity – arising from his regional roots in Basilicata – has led him to work as a consultant for the prestigious Vittoriano Complex Museum in Rome. This fascinating exhibition space has enabled him to direct various ‘montage films’ which, through the use of invaluable archive material, pay homage to classic directors such as Federico Fellini (‘Romarcord Fellini’, 2003), Sophia Loren (‘Scicolone, Lazzaro , Loren’, 2006) and Sordi (‘Alberto Sordi e la sua Roma’, 2013). For the inauguration of the Museo Nazionale dell'Emigrazione (2010) he made his first documentary, ‘Testimonianze d’Emigrazione: il nostro cinema’. His passion for ecology and sustainable lifestyles is the fruit of his recent experience as radio host for EcoRadio, where he reported on the first editions of the Think Forward Film Festival, which became such a labor of love that he decided to organize it himself, together with a great friend and distinguished colleague of his.
