Who is Franco Fratto?


Born in Turin (Italy) on 6th May 1958. Married to Franca. He has two children, Sara and Raffaele.

Franco began his professional activity as a journalist at an Italian radio station. He was for a long time in charge of judicial news (for example covering the major trial of the Red Brigades in Turin), cultural services and of the show and he also acted as a leading investigative journalist. He has worked as a writer and producer in the audiovisual sector, having made a documentary on the Castle of Fenestrelle and prepared corporate videos. His feature-length science-fiction film "Memory" won the Fiction Prize at the 1993 International Festival of Cinema of Salerno. In April 1998 he founded and produced the webzine of information on the metropolitan area of Turin known as "TurinPolis", immediately characterizing it with strong multimedia content (as the visit of Pope John Paul II on the occasion of his pilgrimage to the Sacred Shroud: it was the first time in history that the Pope's visit had been transmitted live on the internet).
In 2004 Franco won the Giovanni Trovati Journalist's Prize given by the Association of Journalists in Italy and “La Stampa”. His work "The Sun in the Cruet", a film and TV mini-series based on the figure and the life of the Italian scientist, Alexander Cruto (who discovered the light-bulb filament before T. A. Edison), has been optioned. Mr Fratto is also working on a cinema adaptation of a major novel of Martin Hocke, on which he holds the option. "The Chessboard of the Powerful" is a story of espionage and love. His screenplay for "The Blind Knight" narrates a history during the medieval period, and has as its protagonist a young noble who fears losing his beloved to the violence going on around him and, blinded and without memory of his past, becomes a Knight of the Temple in the period preceding the fall of Jerusalem at the time of the Crusades. After the defeat, still unaware and blind, his own destiny will bring him to try to find once more his beloved.
