Daniela Bassani (Milan, 1966) is an Italian sound editor and sound designer. She graduated from the Rome Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia in Editing, but soon became particularly sensitive to and developed a keen interest in the relationship between sound and image. For this reason, from 1997 – during the years marked by the revolutionary transition from analogue to digital techniques – she has worked almost exclusively on sound postproduction. She collaborated on over 150 between films, TV series, documentaries, and audio-visual projects with some of the most outstanding Italian filmmakers, including Matteo Garrone, Gabriele Salvatores, Paolo Virzì, Alice Rohrwacher, Silvio Soldini, and Leonardo Di Costanzo. Nominated several times for the David di Donatello awards (for Matteo Garrone’s Pinocchio and Paolo Virzì’s Like Crazy) and the Golden Reel Award (Virzì’s Human Capital), in 2014 she was the recipient of the AITS Award for Leonardo Guerra Seràglioli’s Last summer. She has devoted herself to teaching for years, designing and teaching courses for the Rome Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia, the Bolzano Zelig School of Documentary, and the Rome Gian Maria Volonté School. The particular focus of her teaching is the theme of listening as a conscious and synesthetic act. In 2018, Bassani was the first Italian woman sound editor to be appointed member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Jury.
