Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Massimo Serato began his prolific acting career in Italian cinema at the age of 24, with his role in the 1938 drama "Inventiamo L'amore." It wasn't long before Serato found a niche playing athletically inclined roles in Italian sword-and-sandal pictures and historical dramas; he scored several starring roles over the next decade, including a well-known turn as the affluent nobleman Franco Maironi in 1941's "Piccolo Mondo Antico." Serato captured Italy's Silver Ribbon award for Best Supporting Actor for his role as Major Heinrich in the 1946 war drama "Il Sole Sorge Ancora," but it wasn't until the 1960s that he would really find international recognition.

He also made appearances in major international films like the Oscar-nominated "El Cid," where Serato shared screen time with Charlton Heston, and the BAFTA-winning 1973 film "Don't Look Now."
