Gabriel was born in Florence. Since the age of 11, he’s had a deep interest in writing and the arts. By the age of 14 he discovered a passion for cinema. 5 years ago he decided to leave everything behind and move to Melbourne, where he was lucky enough to meet and collaborate with some young Australian talents. The major crisis we are witnessing, Covid19, has once again prompted him to reflect on his choices and his future. Gabriel now hosts “The Magic Box”, a program about movies for an Italian radio “Radio Italiana 531” .
