About Fabrizio Mancinelli

Italian composer and music producer Fabrizio Mancinelli grew up within the medieval walls of L’Aquila, Italy, a lively town rich with cultural institutions.
Surrounded by narrow streets lined with Baroque and Renaissance churches, Mancinelli was attracted at an early age to fine-arts, the opera and eventually, film scores.

Following the passionate advice of composer Gian Carlo Menotti (whom he later assisted in the staging of his operas at the Spoleto Festival in Italy), Mancinelli enrolled in the Music Composition Program at the Conservatory Alfredo Casella, L’Aquila, Italy where he graduated in 2006 with honors in both composition and conducting. Soon after he went on to study under the guidance of BAFTA and Academy Award Winning Composer Luis Bacalov (Il Postino).

​Pursuant to receiving a Fulbright Grant, Mancinelli studied Scoring for Motion Pictures and Television at the University of Southern California and graduated in 2009.

Since then, Mancinelli has composed music for multiple venues and media (including concerts, theater, film, television and the web) and has closely collaborated with many different directors and prestigious institutions.

His music for the Italian Rai 3 TV Talk Show “Agorà” has aired daily 2010/17 and his original score for the feature documentary “Growing Up with Nine Old Men” (Disney) by Theodore Thomas has been internationally released by Buena Vista.

A short list of his clients includes The Walt Disney Studios, Feeln (Hallmark), Lionsgate, Rai, Mediaset (Taodue), Studio Bozzetto, Felix Film, NBC, Dick Clark Production Company, The Golden Globes and Warner Bros. Animation.

He has recently completed the original score and an original song for the animated feature “The Snow Queen 3” (Wizart Animation), the musical “Beauty” (Moolmore Productions – starring Sylvester McCoy) and the documentary “Barbiana ‘65” (Special screening event at the Mostra Internazionale del Cinema di Venezia –Venice Film Festival 2017).

Future projects include the animated film “Mushka” by Andreas Deja (Aladdin, The Lion King), working alongside songwriter Richard M.

Sherman (Academy Award – Mary Poppins) and the live action feature “Venus Transit” (Sloane Grant – Tribeca) by Giulia Corda.

A Voting Member of the Academy of Television, Arts and Sciences (Emmys) and of Asifa, Mancinelli is the founder of Fab Music, INC. a music and sound production company based in Glendale, CA.
