Roberto Pacini

Roberto Pacini (born in Florence Italy,1967), is an Italian director, author and theatre and film producer.

He lives and works in Rome. In 1987, he attended the "Bottega Teatrale di Firenze" (Florentine Theatre School) directed by Vittorio Gassman. In 1993, he was awarded a degree in Drama and Performing Arts at the Accademia Nazionale "Silvio D’Amico" (National Academy of Dramatic Arts), the most important Italian performing arts institute for theatre directors and actors.

He made his debut as director in 1994 and since 1996 he has been a theatre playwright and director. The range of his performances belongs to the so-called "Word Theatre"; he developed its qualities creating drama compositions that already determine interpretation key and the work on the Text and on the Actors is essential.

In years, he carries out in his own working method and style, visionary and grotesque, and his research gives unusual reading of classic works (Anton Chekhov, Kafka, Pirandello, Shakespeare) and contemporary authors. Performances, usually located in spaces not appointed to theatre presentations, go beyond the realism dimension and they offer fantastic suggestions, irrational, with strong expressionistic tints. Original soundtracks – by musicians and bands - are always composed for every show.

Among the significant titles: "La Locanda Hauser" (Hauser Inn) (1995), from Maupassant's tales, "L'Ospedale dei Mentecatti" (Hospital for the Insane People) (1996), from "A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man" by Joyce, and "La notte poco prima della foresta" (The Night before the forests) (2000) by Bernard-Marie Koltès, the first time on national stages in an unabridged edition. By Koltès, he also realized the first Italian version of "Heritage" (2002)

In 2003, he has been nominated Artistic Director of "CTD theatre company" of Rome and produced Classic Works (Aeschylus, Shakespeare, Herman Melville) and Italian and International "New Writing Works". He has founded and directed "Cadmo & Armonia theatre company" ("1994") and afterwards "Il Teatro di Puck" (Puck’s Theatre) (1998).

Since 2001, he has been also a movie author and producer. Personal projects (Dv, Betacam), produced by "Cinepuck", are influenced by his theatrical origins and then they gain surreal and metaphysical dimension, even thanks to old format Super 8 experimentations. In 35 mm and 16 mm production, he cooperated in Italian feature film productions and International co productions.

Among his late works as author and director, "Sunlight" (2006), institutional spot celebrating the 50th anniversary of Treaty of Rome (Prix Europa 2006, Berlin) and "Fed Up" (2007), spot against discrimination to women for public service broadcasting, produced by Unesco (Paris).
