After a childhood filled with Wilder movies and too much Nutella, Giulia Corda, a proud citizen of Trastevere, the very heart of Rome, graduated summa cum laude from the University of Rome “La Sapienza” with a bachelor’s degree in Anthropology. She then pursued her screenwriting education in both Rome and Milan. After an early career working for Raitre, one the three Italian national TV channels, she was awarded a Fulbright Fellowship and moved to Los Angeles where she earned an M.F.A. in Writing for Screen and Television at the University of Southern California. Her thesis script, Venus Transit, earned her two Sloan grants, from USC and the Tribeca Film Institute. Giulia specializes in writing “coming of age at any age” stories, because no matter the ages of the characters she writes, they always have to struggle to find their place in the world and to reach a deeper knowledge of themselves, even if this means facing their fears and dealing with sides of their personality that they despise. Giulia is still trying to figure out how Lubitsch would do it, but she combines heart and soft humor, while shaping her stories with the refreshing perspective of an Italian woman bouncing between Hollywood and the Eternal City.
