Italian director Stefano Savona studied archeology and anthropology before beginning work as a freelance photography in 1995. In 1999 he began directing documentaries and video installations, and completed his first feature-length documentary, Notes from a Kurdish Rebel, in 2006. His documentaries are notable for tackling extreme situations head-first, like Palazzo delle Aquile, which won the Human Rights Award at BAFICI. He has also been collecting hundreds of testimonies for a visual history archive dedicated to the living memory of 100 years of rural civilization in Sicily.
