Giulia Pietrozzini is a screenwriter, playwright and performer. She studied screenwriting with a scholarship at the Anac (National Association of Cinema Authors) and narrative at the Minimum Fax publishing house.
DOR, written with Valeria Testagrossa, was selected by the Lazio Region, the MIC (Italian Ministry of Culture) and Berlinale Talent for the development of the screenplay. With the movie subject of the animated film MIAOUI she was awarded for the value of the project by the Roma Lazio Film Commission. She wrote and directed the play IPPOTERAPIA (with Chantal Gori and Giulio Maroncelli), which was reviewed by ‘Teatro e Critica’ as a piece on unveiling through dialogue: classic and fun, the crisis of the couple comes slowly, almost out of nowhere, from small misunderstandings; a beautiful “dance”.
She is part of the artistic and performative research group Svelate, headed by actress Silvia Gallerano.

Project

Dor

Gioia is eighty. She lives in Rome with Ana, her fifty-year-old Romanian caregiver. Their relation consists in long silences and sharp remarks. But behind the protective barrier, the two women share many intimate moments and have an ironic complicity. They both have a passion for music. Gioia was a well- known pianist. Ana used to sing in a choir of traditional Romanian music. One day Gioia wakes up to find Ana has disappeared mysteriously. Gioia’s daughter, Carlotta, hires Alina, a young cheerful Romanian, to take care of her mother. But her personality is not enough to cheer Gioia up. She’s depressed and stays in bed all day. Alina is at the height of concern when a phone call changes everything. At the other end of the line, Ana’s daughter, Nicoleta, tells Gioia her mother is not well and accuses her of being responsible. Ana had a daughter? Gioia had no idea of that. She takes a decision, she will go to Romania to look for Ana and understand what has happened.
