Alessandro GhebreigziabiherBiography

Alessandro Ghebreigziabiher is an author, playwright, actor, storyteller, teacher and theater director. He has published about twenty books, including nine novels, anthologies of short stories, fairy tales for children, publications for the schools. He is author of storytelling plays, spoken word poetry videos, a blog and also a podcast about contemporary news from Italy and abroad. He was born in Naples in 1968 to an Eritrean father and an Italian mother. He is a forerunner among black italian writers, a precursor afro-italian artist, being also one of the very first afro-italian theatre actors, authors and playwright in italian history. However, the definition that he still prefers today is born between two Souths, Africa and Naples. Since 1999 he is married to Cecilia Moreschi, drama therapist, actress, director and expert in children's theater. They currently live in Rome with their two sons.
Since almost thirty years Ghebreigziabiher conducted workshops and experiential laboratories on theatre, storytelling and social animation in clinical and therapeutic institutions, as much as drug addiction rehabilitation and mental health communities, in several conferences on education subjects offered to professionals.
He obtained a Computer science university degree at Sapienza University of Rome, Italy, and also for this reason, not surprisingly, in 2019 he closed his profiles and pages on various social networks, definitively abandoning Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and similar. At Sapienza University he also studied acting with Saverio D'Ercole and attended many acting courses, one in particular with Gary Brackett from The Living Theatre of New York. From 1994 to 2002 he attended meetings on managing and leading a group by the psychoanalyst Harold Bridger (founding member of the Tavistock Institute).
His first book, Sunset (Tramonto, Italian edition, Lapis, 2002, Tempesta Editore, 2017), in 2003 was selected by the International Youth Library (IYL), in Munich, Germany, for the White Ravens, a mention for children books from around the world that they consider to be especially noteworthy.
