Born in Rome’s Garbatella neighborhood, at just 43 he’s appeared in over 5 dozen films and won David di Donatellos, Golden Globes, Nastri d’Argentos, and best actor at the Venice Film Festival for his role in Gli Equilibristi.
Americans can get to know and love him in these movies that are readily available in the U.S.A.

Giudo falls for a beautiful convict with a day pass played by Valeria Golino.
Il Comandante e La Cicogna (Garibaldi’s Lovers)
Rollicking, silly, good fun from Silvio Soldino.
And in DVD form:
Valerio plays a political advisor with a serious headache in Roberto Andò’s comedy, a sort of ‘Parent Trap’ for adults.
“Mom’s been ruining our life all her life. Maybe she’ll ruin yours too!”
And for those of you who can watch movies that have not been distributed in the U.S.A., please don’t miss:
