Renato Salvatori (20 March 1934 – 27 March 1988) was an Italian multi-purpose character actor.

Biography

Salvatori was born in Seravezza, province of Lucca.

He 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 1960s, turned into one of Italy's strongest characters actors of grim, harrowing drama.

He met French actress Annie Girardot on the set of the 1960 movie Rocco and His Brothers and married her on 6 January 1962. In sharp contrast to their off-camera relationship, in the movie Salvatori played a boxer-turned-thug who viciously rapes Annie, who played a prostitute. They had a daughter, Giulia; later they separated but never divorced.

Salvatori died in Rome of cirrhosis of the liver.
