Trivia (5)

Italian multi purpose actor who started off handsomely as a romantic juvenile actor but after working with the powerful likes of directors Luchino Visconti, Roberto Rossellini, and Vittorio De Sica in the '60s, turned into one of Italy's strongest characters actors of grim, harrowing drama.
Came to acting by chance, when he was picked for his athletic good looks while working at a resort in Viareggio.
He has a daughter with Annie Girardot: Giulia Salvatori.
His grandson, the son of Giulia Salvatori, is also named Renato Salvatori.
