BIO

Born in 1988, Margherita Vicario produced her debut album, Minimal Musical while training as an actress at Accademia Europea di Arte Drammatica (Rome).
Vicarios’s BA thesis delved into Brecht’s use of popular music in political theater. After university, she studied the Dalcroze method, an educational practice centred on cultivating kids’ inherent musicality through rhythmic movement.
She concurrently pursues a dual career as an actor and as a musician. In 2021, she unveiled her second album, Bingo, under the Universal label.
Gloria! is her first feature as a writer and director.
