Biography

Pier Paolo Giarolo was born in Argentina in 1970. After taking a classical piano degree at the Vicenza Academy of Music, he took a master's degree at the Holden School in Turin.

After winning the 2005 Rome International Documentary Festival with “A little show” he attains the license for the activity of “Cinemambulante” (wandering-cineast).
