Actor, director, poet, writer and painter. Carlo Tedeschi was born in Rapallo (Genoa, Italy) in 1951.
He started painting when he was only a child. His first painting dates back to1957, and he started devoting himself to the theatre when he was still very young.

Later, he moved to Cattolica (Rimini) beside Leo Amici and Maria di Gregorio because he wanted to dedicate his life entirely to his neighbour and to the fulfilment of humanitarian works dedicated to peace, love and brotherliness.

In 1982 he gave life, together with its promoter Leo Amici, to the humanitarian Association Dare and realized the International Ecumenical Centre “Lake of Monte Colombo” (Rimini Province) that included, among other things, buildings dedicated to solidarity and to the realization and socialization of the young.

In 1985, he founded and directed the Academy of Art and formation to the profession which became a breeding ground for famous professional artists.

In 1986, he gained success with “Sicuramente Amici” (Friends for sure) which he wrote, directed and interpreted.

Leo Amici died in the same year, and he prosecuted his social and humanitarian work sided by Maria di Gregorio.

Since then he has written 17 original musicals which have carried him to the stages of the major Italian theatres and brought success to his company.

But, above all, Carlo Tedeschi is a believer (or man of faith): he cooperates with many Italian Dioceses. As a pastoral worker, he animated the centres for the Gospel Listening and catechesis for the youngest ones.

As a director, his shows as well as all his artistic productions, have become a means of evangelization with the aim of spreading the message of love and friendship of the Christian teaching, to rediscover values, to offer, especially to the young ones, an example of Christian life.

In 2002 he constituted the Leo Amici Foundation, a recognized body.

In 2004 he wrote and directed his new musical “Chiara di Dio” based on St. Claire’s life beside St. Francis from Assisi.
