Antonello Matarazzo is an exponent of Medialismo, an Italian movement that postulate different media interaction. He has been engaged in his personal search concerning the visual arts, combining moving pictures with "still" ones, shifting from film-making to paintings and realizing video installations and video projections in galleries, museums and festivals in Italy and outside since 1990.

Since 2000, the year of his debut video, The Fable, a short film produced and broadcast by Fuori Orario (Raitre), he has taken part in many national and international festivals, such as the Venice Film Festival, Festival Cinéma Méditerranéen Montpellier, Rome Film Fest, Torino Film Festival, Festival international du film sur l'art de Montréal, Mar del Plata Film Festival and the Locarno International Film Festival), receiving many prizes and rave reviews.[1][2][3][4][5] Some of the most famous Italian jet set personalities, like the film critic Enrico Ghezzi [6] and the actress Piera Degli Esposti [7] starred in his artistic films. In 2006, a whole retrospective of his works took place within the 42° Mostra Internazionale del Nuovo Cinema di Pesaro.[8]
