Biography

The son of a marble mason, Renato Salvatori was able to launch a film career on the strength of his good looks and impressive physique. Active onscreen from 1952, he was most memorably cast in crime films, notably Visconti's Rocco and His Brothers. He was later a mainstay of such politically supercharged productions as Z (1968) and Quemada (aka Burn) (1969). Renato Salvatori was the husband of French actress Annie Girardot with whom he co-starred in Rocco and His Brothers. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
