Let’s be honest, girls; we love Italian movies because we love Italians, and Italian men are pretty good-looking. We’ve been drooling over Italian movie stars for years:
Exhibit A - Marcello Mastrioanni
Those who say the golden era of Italian movies is over are obviously not paying attention, because there are some very handsome Italian actors making movies these days; leading the pack is Raoul Bova, star of Under the Tuscan Sun. In that movie, he was every American woman’s fantasy – the gorgeous guy you’d have an affair with it you ever got the chance in Italy.
These days Raoul is making Italian women’s hearts beat a little faster in movies like the Nastro d’argento award-winning Nessuno Mi Può Giudicare.
Or how about Flavio Parenti? You saw Flavio as Edoardo Recchi Jr. in I Am Love, and soon you’ll see him in the new Woody Allen movie that’s being made in Rome.
Filipo Timi is one of my favorites – he’s hot in every possible sense of the word. He’s not only good-looking, he is one of the most talented, successful actors of the last few years, starring in Vincere, La Doppia Ora, and The American, with George Clooney.
And it wouldn’t be a list of handsome men without Riccardo Scamarcio – probably the hottest thing in Italy today. He starred in Manuale d’Amore 2 and 3, Mine Vaganti, and we’ll see him soon too in Woody Allen’s new movie.
