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 was a finalist in the Hollywood Reporter's international contest "Defining Moments." After reading several books on screenwriting, I have written numerous short scripts. My writing style is concentrated on stories reflecting real life and real people. Maybe, a subconscious inclination toward Italian Neorealism. My motto is: the best fiction is about reality. Go to bio
