He is the son of Italian scriptwriter and movie director Giuseppe Moccia, and his childhood was linked to the world of cinema through his father, which he wrote in several Italian comedies of the 70s and 80s. It started in the world of work from his father at age 19 as assistant director Attila flagello di Dio (1982) .1 Five years later he directed his first film, Palla to the center, but the lack of success he had caused Moccia wrote screenplays and directed several series. In 1992 he wrote his first novel Three Meters Above Heaven (Tre Metri Sopra il Cielo/Tres metros sobre el cielo) which was rejected by several publishers and releases in a small edition by "Il Ventaglio". Again without success, in 1996 wrote and directed the film Classe mista 3A and returned to the world of television. In 2004, twelve years after its first edition, Three meters above Heaven had a reissue, becoming a bestseller and a same title movie, also receiving several awards and translations into several languages (also portuguese and japanese). In 2006 he published I want you (Ho Voglia di Te/Tengo ganas de ti), sequel to the previous novel, which was so successful that it was decided, again, to adapt it to film. Something similar happened with Sorry but I call you love (Scusa ma ti chiamo amore) (2007), prequel of sorry but I want to marry you (2009) (Scusa ma ti voglio sposare) whose premiere was in 2010.

In 2017 he wrote Three times you(Tre volte te/ Tres veses tu) which was the last book of the series of Three meters above heaven.
