Gianni Bertoli

Hi Everyone!

I'm Gianni Bertoli, i'm 29 and i'm Italian! I'm based in Milan and i work mainly as an assistant/associate but i also design my own shows!

In the italian world the role of associate doesn't exist but my duties cover everything from drawing the plot, to fucusing, to take over when LD is not there and to relight show. 

I started at 17 in a small theatre near Florence as a technician and after that i worked in a rental company.

I graduated in 2017 in Accademia Teatro alla Scala in Milan and since it i started work in the Opera world!

In 2020 i was part of ALD LUmiere Scheme tutored by MArk Jonathan!

I speak italian, english and french and i'm an Etc Eos Programmer.
