The fall of the wall – a key moment: Marco Mannozzi on his life
Marco Mannozzi grew up in Tuscany and has been a Berliner by choice for 20 years. He began his career as a 17-year-old in Rome, worked and lived in London, Paris and New York.
In 1989, he came to Berlin for a visit two days before the fall of the Wall. He was in the middle of this historic moment that was to change his life. The city was under a spell. Everyone was happy that they could finally enjoy freedom. Families were reuniting after years of separation. There was an incredible power and change in the air. He just didn’t want to leave. The city immediately offered him the opportunity to practice his art in many ways, even on the screen. He began working in film, a lot in the eastern part of the city and in the Babelsberg film studios, as well as for the magazine Sybille. Everything seemed like a movie within a movie. He worked as chief make-up artist with TV stars like Christine Neubauer, Andrea Sawatzki, Klaus J. Behrendt, Martina Gedeck, Katja Flint, Otto Sander and Christiane Hörbiger and many others.
During this time Marco Mannozzi supported many other Italian artists by letting them come to Berlin or have exhibitions here. He was interested in bringing Italian art together with German art. Since 1989 he now lives in Berlin and has launched his own make-up line under his name. He supports international artists by involving them in his project through their image on his cosmetic products.
“I fell in love with the Nikolaiviertel,” says Marco Mannozzi. It is the place where the past meets the future, a place where people meet to enjoy the different arts. All his customers are therefore enthusiastic about this location.
