Matteo Bergamo was born in Portogruaro in the province of Venice on 02/12/1993.
After working for two years in Germany as a waiter, he moved to Rome, at the age of twenty-three, to undertake his journey in the arts; the definitive push towards a passion never cultivated before comes from the discovery of the films of Gian Maria Volontè. He attended the Stap Brancaccio Academy, for a three-year acting, directing and dramaturgy course directed by Lorenzo Gioielli.
During his academic career he staged performances written by the students themselves; among these we remember:
- “Primavere (Springs), from “Spring Awakening ” by F. Wedekind, directed by Virginia Franchi and Alberto Bellandi. Teatro Spazio Diamante, Rome – Same show staged at the Rebibbia prison for inmates.

He also takes part in a short film, as a leading actor, presented at the Casa del Cinema in Rome and at the Perth film festival.
In Australia the short won the critics’ prize. In 2019, at the end of the three-year period, he staged “The pale face of silence”, a show he wrote and directed for the InDivenire Festival in Rome.
