Lorenzo Apolli was born in a small city in the North of Italy, where he studied music and visual arts. After graduating in architecture he entered a documentary film-making institute, focussing his attention on visions from the past and trying to explore the possible, mutual contributions among sound and image in the use of archival materials. He currently works as a researcher in a multidisciplinary documentation centre specialising in contemporary history, for which in the last few years he has been rediscovering archives of still and moving images.
