WHY SHOULD YOU
by Riccardo Lo Faro
HOW, WHERE, WHEN
As a writer, published author and biographer, I am passionate about life stories.
I strongly believe in the immense value of passing our life experiences to the new generations. A life story narrated in a book and/or in a video-biography lasts forever, and this is what I do. I write life stories, memoires, biographies, short-story books, the history of a business, fantasy and children's books, and more. And I do this working closely with my client making sure each story is narrated with his or her own voice.
A VIDEO-BIOGRAPHY BRIDGES THE GAP BETWEEN ORAL HISTORIES AND VISUAL MEMORABILIA
The video biography is produced via a series of video recorded interviews. It is the result of narrative driven video-recorded history of some of the most touching recollections that come to mind while being video-recorded. Your story is told combining video footages of your interviews with a selection of photographs, slides, home movies, 8mm films, and more. It is a unique opportunity to share views, memories and tips on life with those who thus have option to listen to you, watch you on video today and the days to come.
Coping with this journey of memories is not easy for anyone. My extensive experience in this field ensures a careful, respectful collaboration, and the utmost discretion.
I am Italian, born in Rome, and have spent some 30+ years in the US most of which with assignments as journalist, biographer and ghostwriter. I have written and published over 60 books to date, including biographies, short-story books and e.books. Among these: Dante Ferretti, Production Designer, Academy’s Oscar Award Winner; Antonio Pappano -Orchestra Director, The Royal Opera House and Musical Director at Accademia di Santa Cecilia; Giorgio Moroder – Music Producer and Composer, Academy’s Oscar Award Winner; Sylvester Stallone – Actor and Film Producer; Matilda R. Cuomo – frmr. New York State First Lady; Federico Faggin, Physician and Entrepreneur; Frank Serpico – NYPD Detective (ret.); Frank Mancuso – President and CEO of Paramount Pictures and MGM Studios (ret.).
Based on assignments as a ghostwriter, I have also written several books anonymously (biographies, memoires, fantasy stories, and more) in the employ of private clients and companies: Italian, Italian-American, and Italian-Australian personalities as well as US government institutions. These include the NYPD; Italian government institutions, including ICE, Bank of Italy, the Chamber of Commerce, ANPS. I also worked as ghostwriter for the United Nation's Permanent Observer of the Holy See, the Accademia Italiana della Cucina, the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) of NY.
My commitment is to craft the best editorial work in your expectations. My passion is telling your story in a book and/or in a video biography, making sure your words, voice and memories will be treasured over time.
