Mario Martone was born in Naples. He made his directorial debut in 1992 with Morte di un matematico napoletano for which he won the Leone d'Argento at the Venice Film Festival and the David Donatello Best New Director award, Later he won the David Donatello Best Director award for L'amore molesto and David Donatello Best Film award for Noi credevamo.
Regarding his film, Martone said: "Nostalgia is not set in Naples, but in the Rione Sanità, and it is no small nuance. La Sanità is an enclave that not even the Neapolitans know well, a sprawling place."
