Francesco Dragone

Nationality: Italian

Francesco Dragone, born in Milan (Italy) in 1984 now works as a freelance filmmaker. He has developed interest in the social sciences and the visual field, fueled by love for cinema and theater, areas in which he had his first work experiences (2005). Trained first as an assistant engineer at the Teatro Regio in Turin, he then collaborated in the staging of "Biblioetica" at the Teatro Stabile di Torino as part of "Project DOMANI" by W. Le Moli and L. Ronconi (2006). He also worked as an assistant engineer on the set of “Nessuna qualità agli eroi” (P.Franchi) and “A 7Km da Gerusalemme” (M.Ponti) (2007). He graduated in Turin at the Faculty of Foreign Languages and Literature (2008). Furthermore, he received the scholarship, Yourtime, for the cultural project "Situa.To", during which he began to explore the intersection between visual culture and urban space (2010). Later on he explored these issues in a more anthropological perspective in the Master in Visual and Digital Culture at the University of Lisbon (ISCTE-IUL). He studied semiotics and ethnographic documentary, from a theoretical point of view as well as acquiring technical skill in editing and directing.

 Francesco received a B.A. in Interpreting and Translation, as well as a B.A. in Photography.
