Maurizio Lombardi, born in Florence in 1973, started his training as an actor during his childhood, with Ugo Chiti. Along with Gabriella Bartolomei, he carried on a specific work on the voice, and with the actor Franco di Francescantonio, he developed his own personal study both on mimics and physicality of the body as narrative tools. Moreover, he completed his education by studying dance and singing.
