Mathieu Volpe (Rome, Italy, 1990), the son of an Italian father and a Belgian mother, lived in Bari, in the very South of Italy, until he was nineteen. In 2009 he moved to Brussels to study directing at the Institut des arts de diffusion in Louvain-la- Neuve. His graduation film, Il segreto del serpente (2014), has been selected by several international festivals such as Torino Film Festival, Filmer à tout prix, Lussas and Huesca. He has just completed his second short documentary, Our Territory, about the lives of immigrants from the Rignano Ghetto, a slum located in the countryside near Foggia, in southern Italy. He regularly collaborates as a co-author of documentary films.
