South Tyrol 1915. Matteo is called to enlist in the Austro-Hungarian army but not wanting to fight, he takes shelter in the alpine forest near his home with his best friend, Geremia. Their solace is short-lived as the conflict draws nearer and the young men must come to terms with their situation. A tale of lost innocence, evolving traditions and life-changing choices.

In 2018, he graduated from the London Film School’s MA Filmmaking course with his historical short film Croste di Polenta.
