Salani’s directorial debut came in 1989 with the feature documentary The Voice of Europe, divided into three episodes. Salani’s filmography includes Gli Ultimi Giorni, Cono Sur, Personal Mail, Palabras, Tre donne in Europa and Confini d’Europa, the recent series produced by Vivo Film in collaboration with RAI 3 Fuori orario. Written with his long-time screenwriter Monica Rametta, Salani’s films were a blend of documentary and fiction that centred on traveling, borders in Europe and beyond and observations of reality.
