Born in Florence, Leonardo Ferro first earned a degree in Design and Management of Art and Entertainment Events in Florence and later in Cinema at IULM in Milan. He debuted in the audiovisual field with the collective 3PMF, creating the music video "Unofficial BTSTU" at the ArtKeys Prize International Art Exhibition. He then directed two documentaries currently in post-production: "Ultimo Battito," which tells the story of the last blacksmith in Italy, and "Voice Over," set in the Bollate prison, addressing the theme of cinema as a pedagogical and redemptive form for inmates. Following these experiences in documentary filmmaking, he ventured into fiction cinema. He was selected for the Corto Lovere International Short Film Festival to develop a film that highlights the Iseo Lake area. From this experience, "A fin di bene" was born, which won the award for Best Film.
