Francesco Mandelli, born in Erba, Lombardy, made his TV debut in 1998 in the program MTV Italia, and a year later his film debut in Tutti gli uomini del deficiente. In 2015, he participated in the Festival of San Remo and co-directed the film La solita commedia – Inferno.

About his first feature-length film, Mandelli stated “Well But Not Very Well is a film with light tones, there are moments of humor but its strengths remain sensitivity, emotion, the relationship between children and family.”
