Runner Up – Rising Star of the West 2017
A born drama actor, Valentino studied at the dramatics art academy in Rome. One day, tragically, he had to move to France, and what could he do? He found himself in a foreign country, trying to live his stage dream in a foreign language! The only course of action was to turn to silent performance. And so here he is, with his body as his only form of communication. And so he decided to let himself fall into this gothic universe, made of emotions and suggestions.
He is one of the founding members of the Fools Company with whom he has been working for 11 years : they perform, make laboratories, organise courses for professional and amateur actors. He also worked with Burlesque and Cabaret Verona, performed at Maison in Milan, Rock Town in Pordenone and Burlesque soirée in Verona.
