Who we are

Mompracem is the result of the partnership between the directors Antonio and Marco Manetti, the Manetti bros. and the producer Carlo Macchitella, later joined by Pier Giorgio Bellocchio and the German company Beta Film. The common thread drawing them together is their great passion for cinema.

One of Mompracem’s main goals is to put emerging directors in the spotlight and give them the opportunity to create projects which combine entertainment and quality.

Mompracem’s main feature is being a dynamic production, an actual laboratory of ideas which operates and works outside the box, never losing sight of its goals.

Carlo Macchitella (1952-2023)

Cinema is part of my life. I belong to a generation that saw the world in grey. A generation that could only experience colours through books, music, radio, and dances; a generation that, for many years, enabled the magic of the big screen to shape their imagination, the time they spent with friends, the date that could lead to a new love, the memory of a dream or of a narration that would change your life.
