GIANCARLO GIANNINI (Enzo) first studied acting at the Academia Nazionale
in Rome. His long association with director Lina Wertmuller dates back to the
early 1960s when he acted in her play "Two and Two Are No Longer
Four." In the late 1960's, he appeared in supporting roles in Anzio and
The Secret of Santa Vittoria, among others, before Wertmuller chose him
for the lead in Love and Anarchy. He also starred in her first
internationally acclaimed feature The Seduction of Mimi, playing an
innocent stooge duped into an assassination plot. Giannini, by now the recipient of worldwide recognition, continued
working with Wertmuller in Swept Away... by an Unusual Destiny in the Blue
Sea of August (as the sailor marooned on a desert island with haughty
Mariangela Melato) and in 1976's Seven Beauties, for which he earned an
OscarĀ® nomination for Best Actor. Giannini's other films include Luchino
Visconti's The Innocent, Rainer Werner Fassbinder's Lili Marleen, Lina
Wertmuller's A Night Full of Rain, Once Upon a Crime, New York Stories, and
the box office hit Hannibal.
