The Writer: Fausto Lucignani

I was born in Rome, Italy and came to the USA at 25. After settling in New Jersey, I received a cum laude International Marketing degree from Montclair State University. A few years ago, I developed a strong interest in screenwriting and story telling. This year one of my stories has been a finalist in the Hollywood Reporter's international contest "Defining Moments." In addition, I have written numerous short and feature scripts. My writing style is concentrated on stories reflecting real life and everyday people. My scripts have been produced in England, Canada and the United States. Please see Fausto Lucignani IMDB for additional details. My latest script (in Italian) has been optioned... Go to bio
