Ilaria Ambrogi

Ilaria Ambrogi

At the age of 12, Ilaria Ambrogi spent her spare time developing a show with some of her friends.  She took this undertaking very seriously, proving herself to be naturally familiar with the word commitment.  Ilaria entered her first acting school, Teatro Azione, when she was 14, and from that moment on she fell in love with the theater.  At Teatro Azione, she never went unnoticed, starring in such productions as Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet” and “Twelfth Night.”  One of her favorite experiences saw playing Wendy in “Peter Pan.” At the age of 18, Ilaria wrote and performed in a one-woman show, “The Echo,” a socio-political denunciation of violence against women.  The daughter of a journalist and a teacher, she studied with the Faculty of Historical and International Studies at University. This exploration lasted two years, and then she yielded to her true calling: acting.  Her training in the Linklater technique gave her new stimuli, taking her to New York where a decisive encounter with her mentor Susan Batson took place. Meanwhile, Ilaria made an incredibly smooth adjustment from theater to film, shining in roles in “I Was,” directed by Simone Gandolfo, “Sloth,” directed by Giulio Poidomani, “Profile”, directed by Stella Gu and, most notably, playing one of the leads in “The Interview,” directed by Jane Basina. She continued her work in theater, participating in many projects and she was recently on stage in New York City with her one woman-show ” Two women: Sophia and Sofia”, a journey in Sophia Loren’s life, directed by Susan...
