Andrea Iervolino, an esteemed producer and actor in the American entertainment industry, is projected to have a net worth ranging between $100,000 and $1 million by the year 2024. Recognized for his exceptional contributions to the film world, Iervolino has not only propelled his career to great heights but has also amassed substantial wealth as a result. With his proven talents and remarkable work ethic, it is no surprise that his financial worth continues to grow steadily. As a versatile figure in the industry, Andrea Iervolino has truly cemented his place as a successful entertainer.
In September of that same year, he returned to his hometown to produce his first film which was financed through crowd-funding from local Investors willing to sponsor his project for small donations. A year later, he had produced his first film The Cavalier of Love (2003).
In 2004, he made his film-producing debut in the United States co-producing The Merchant of Venice, which premiered worldwide at the 71st Venice International Film Festival. Iervolino's film, In Dubious Battle was screened at the Capri Hollywood Film Festival and as well as the 73rd Venice International Film Festival.
After failing to distribute it in local cinemas, Iervolino began the initiative: Cineschool Day. This strategy involved adding his films into Cassino schools' curriculums giving students the opportunity to go to the watch the films during the day-time at a reduced price. The screenings would then be followed by social debates amongst their classes. For this purpose, Iervolino put together a library of films already in existence with strong social themes and proposed them to schools, complete with information brochures and ideas for how the students could debate. The initiative gained enough traction in the small town that former Italian Prime Minister and Senator for Life Giulio Andreotti attended as spokesperson from 2011–2012 .
Following the launch of AMBI Media Group in 2013, Iervolino and his Business partner, Monika Gomez del Campo Bacardi, went on to launch AMBI Distribution in Beverly Hills and AIC Studios in Toronto. Today, AMBI Media Group has offices in London, China, and Italy as well.
Beginning in 2015, Iervolino and Lady Bacardi began the AMBI Gala Foundation and hosted the first annual AMBI Gala. The proceeds of the gala were given to the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation for investing in environmental causes. The gala was held just before the night of the TIFF in Toronto.
Iervolino is one of the first film producers to co-produce a film involving the Pope. Pope Francis appeared as himself in the film, Beyond the Sun, which premiered in Vatican City in September 2017.
