My passion for the history of cinema began during the first year of my BA in Pisa (Italy). As a student of European Literature, I successfully completed two courses in cinema studies; immediately afterwards, I started to study and research the history of film independently. Motivated by my great interest for the field, I decided to centre my MA degree thesis on German Expressionist cinema.

In 2010-2011, I have successfully attended the cinema and scriptwriting course at the prestigious Immagina Cinema School in Florence. At the school, I developed the skills necessary to write cinema screenplays. In February 2011, I participated to the Berlin International Film Festival as an accredited journalist; two of the articles I wrote at the festival (Coriolanus and The Future) have been published on the important website "Sentieri Selvaggi".

In 2014, I started the blog Meet Michael Floyd, in which I regularly write short stories about famous movies and the history of cinema. Visit the blog at
