In 1969, Nanni Moretti debuted in the water polo first division and in 1970 he played in the national youth team. In 1973, he made his first short film.

This was followed by Ecce Bombo (1978), Sweet Dreams (1981), Bianca (1984), The Mass is Ended (1985) – Silver Bear at the Berlin Film Festival – Red Lob (1989), Dear Diary (1993) best director at the 1994 Festival de Cannes, April (1998), The Son’s Room (2001) Palme d'or at the Festival de Cannes, The Caiman (2006) and We Have a Pope (2011).

Calopresti in 1995) and Quiet Chaos (directed by A. Grimaldi in 2008).
