Meet the Actors: Monica Garavello as Balzarina


Monica Garavello was born in Este, a little village near Padua. After studying theatre at the University of Bologna, she moved to Venice to attend a three year Drama School, at Teatro a L’Avogaria. Venice was exciting but she felt the need to open herself to new perspectives, so she started to travel to specialize and improve her theatre skills: to London, at LAMDA (Drama Academy of Music and Dramatic Art), attending an acting course on Shakespeare; to Berlin, working at Gorki Theater, to New York, studying in a summer course on film acting at Stella Adler School, and then to Rome. Finally, she has chosen to come back to Venice and be part of some local projects, both in theatre and in some movies.
