Hi! I’m Giulia Palaia creative director, film director and photographer based in Bolzano, Italy.
Looking for the deepest why, I spent my childhood walking on the ceiling with a mirror under my eyes. After studying architecture without wanting to be an architect and art without wanting to be an artist, I found in relational design my own approach to design and in the storytelling and the photographic aesthetic my way to discover myself. I enjoy telling my dreams as soon as I wake up and swimming in the deep end.
I studied between Venice, Paris and Milan and I came back to Bolzano, my city of birth, where I started working in the world of creative communication, dedicating myself to commercial and cultural projects, founding prisca bora ~ studio with my friend and colleague Lorenza Troian, also illustrator and copywriter.
Thanks to my partner Alessio Vasarin, film director and producer, I approached cinema as an author, giving voice to a personal investigation, through the exploration of female figures in dialogue or in conflict with their own double. I wrote and directed two short films, Agriope and Due Madri , and one video art project, Mada. I’ve been selected by IDM Film Funding to pursue a filmmaking mentorship that I’m having with the script editor Isabella Weber. Now I’m writing the short film Domani all’alba , my feature filmDelcisa, with which I participated in the Veneto Writing Lab, and developing my first photographic editorial project at Yogurt Lab.
