Life and career
Son of a barber and of a cinema cashier, Franco Fabrizi started his career as a model and an actor in fotoromanzi. Fabrizi also starred on several revues and stage works, then he debuted on the big screen with a supporting role in Chronicle of a Love (Cronaca di un amore) (1950), Michelangelo Antonioni’s long film debut.
The role that made him known was as Fausto in Federico Fellini’s I vitelloni; from then he was inextricably linked to the character of a full-time seducer, a young wastrel, a young not-so-young man who refuses to grow up, a character that he reprised, with different facets, in a great number of films. Past the 1950s, Fabrizi was mainly relegated to character roles in Italian, French and Spanish minor productions; he still appeared on several major works of Italian cinema, and one of his last great roles was in Luchino Visconti’s Death in Venice.
In 1993 he had a serious car accident from which he recovered; immediately after, however, it manifested the illness that led him to death. Fabrizi died of bowel cancer in 1995.
