Executive Producer of “Devils”
Matilde Bernabei is an executive producer of The CW’s “Devils,” a conspiracy thriller for Sky Studios, starring Patrick Dempsey and Alessandro Borghi.
Bernabei, with her energy and passion for life, is the soul of Lux Vide. Curious and intuitive, she’s always busy creating new projects.
Setting out on her career path at an early age, Bernabei had already been working as a journalist for the weekly magazine Panorama when, at the age of 21, she joined ASIP, a company engaged in technical cooperation with developing countries. After three years, she was appointed General Secretary, gaining experience that took her to Montedison. Here, at the age of just 26, she headed the employment programme for industrial cities in Southern Italy, becoming the youngest woman executive of an industrial group in Italy.
In 1984, she was appointed Strategy and New Business Director of Iniziativa Me.Ta., the Montedison Group holding company for the service sector and diversification, contributing to turn it into Italy’s third-largest holding company in only three years. In 1987, she became the Managing Director of the newspaper “Il Messaggero.” It was this experience that took her to become one of the founders of Lux Vide, where she is currently President, personally overseeing the company’s business growth and as a producer of the entire Lux Vide library.
In 2019, she was nominated Cavaliere del Lavoro (Order of Merit for Labour) by Sergio Mattarella, President of Italy, becoming the first woman of the audiovisual sector to be awarded this honor.
