Federico Moccia

Federico Moccia is an Italian writer, screenwriter and film director, and one of the most amazing publishing phenomena in countries such as Italy and Spain. His novels have had similar impact with young audiences as the ones by John Green or Cecelia Ahern. Rome already has the “Moccia route”, the sentences of his books are written on the walls of the city.  And, as the protagonists of his novels do, thousands of young Italians (and readers from other countries) seal their love by attaching a padlock on the Ponte Milvio.
