Elio Germano
Elio Germano, April 2008
Born 25 September 1980

Elio Germano (born 25 September 1980) is an Italian actor.

Born in Rome, he debuted, aged twelve, in the Castellano e Pipolo's movie Ci hai rotto papà (1992). Seven years later, he abandoned an opportunity to work in theatre to play in Carlo Vanzina's Il cielo in una stanza, which launched Germano as one of the most popular Italian actors.

He subsequently worked with numerous directors such as Ettore Scola (Concorrenza sleale), Emanuele Crialese (Respiro), Gianluca Maria Tavarelli (Liberi), Giovanni Veronesi (Che ne sarà di noi), Michele Placido (Romanzo criminale), Gabriele Salvatores (Quo Vadis, Baby?, Come Dio comanda), Paolo Virzì (N (Io e Napoleone), Tutta la vita davanti), Paolo Franchi (Nessuna qualità agli eroi), Francesco Patierno (Il mattino ha l'oro in bocca), Daniele Vicari (Il passato è una terra straniera) and Ferzan Özpetek (Magnifica Presenza).

For his role in the movie Mio fratello è figlio unico (2007), by Daniele Luchetti, he won the David di Donatello as best actor in a leading role. In 2010, he won the Best Actor Award, ex-aequo with Javier Bardem, at the Cannes Film Festival, for his interpretation in La Nostra Vita. It has been announced that he will play the son of Italian journalist Tiziano Terzani, Folco Terzani in an upcoming biopic.[4]
