Mario Martone, born in Naples in 1959, began his artistic career in the theatre, staging his first play in 1976. His cinematic debut was in 1980 with a short film and twelve years later his first feature film Morte di un matematico napoletano. Mario won the Nastro d'argento Best Director and Best Screenplay awards for Qui rido io.
Regarding his film Laggiù qualcuno mi ama, Martone said:"Massimo was a gift that the God of cinema and art gave to all of us. In him grace and power were united, in a beautiful and sweet human dimension that I don't know how to describe other than as a gift."
