    About Nino Valpiani

    Nino Vincenzo Valpiani was born in Zurich, Switzerland, in 1996. Having been raised by artistic parents, film has always played a central role in his upbringing. Although it wasn’t up until finishing his high school in 2015 that he started pursuing this craft. Since then, Nino Valpiani continuously increases his experience working in the film and advertising industry. Initially working as a project manager and copywriter, he then started working as a freelance photographer and 1. AD from 2017. Furthermore, he became the resident photographer at the infamous GDR gem Funkhaus Berlin and started focusing solely on artistic projects.
    His 2018 completed short-film RE:CYCLE, the first film in a trilogy about tragic figures in modern society, reflects not only his further advancement as a feature director, but also his personal growth as a human being. Nino Valpiani lives and works in Berlin.
