Franco Nero, a leading actor in international cinema, was born in Parma (Northern Italy).
His inclination for acting had already become obvious in his teenage years when he began
organizing and participating in student plays.
After a short stint at a leading theatre school, he moved to Rome where he joined a small
group of friends for the purpose of making some documentaries.
Still unsure of his ultimate vocation, he worked various jobs on the crew.
The role as Abel in John Houston’s film The Bible (1964) marked a crucial point in his
career.
A few months later he had his big break with the internationally acclaimed cult-classic
Spaghetti-Western, “Django”. The following year Joshua Logan cast him in the film
version of “Camelot” (Warner Bros.), opposite Vanessa Redgrave, for which he was
nominated for a Golden Globe award.
Nero has appeared in more than 185 movies around the world and has worked with
Europe’s top directors, such as Luis Bunuel, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Claude Chabrol,
Sergei Bondarciuk, Michael Cacoyannis, Elio Petri, Marco Bellocchio, just to mention a
few. He has also played the role of leading national heroes such “Garibaldi” (Italy),
“Arpad” (Hungary), and “Banovic Strakigna” (Former Yugoslavia). In the United States
he has been seen in successful mini-series such as “The Pirate” (Warner Bros.), “The Last
Days of Pompei” (CBS), “Young Catherine” (TNT), “Bella Mafia” (CBS), “The Painted
Lady”, “Saint Augustine”, and movies such as “The Legend of Valentino”, “21 Hours to
Munich” , “Force Ten from Navarone”, “Enter the Ninja”, “The Versace Murder”, “Die
Hard 2”, and recently “Letters to Juliet”.
At the beginning oh the 80’s, he also began producing, writing and directing.
Between films, he participates in various theatrical events.
Over the last fortyfive years he has been a benefactor of the Don Bosco orphanage in Tivoli

Republic was bestowed on him by the President of Italy
In 2011 he was honoured by Brunel University of London with the honorary degree of
