Life and careerEdit

Born in Rosignano Marittimo, Province of Livorno, before starting his acting career, Mannari was a soccer player and played for his local team.[1]

He made his film debut in 1969, chosen by director Mauro Bolognini to play a scene of rape in the Italian drama film L'assoluto naturale (internationally released as He and She and She and He), a scene that at the time raised a slight of controversities and launched his career.[1]

Later Mannari played a number of leading roles, but his career was mainly limited to conventional roles of handsome seducer.[1] He died at age 43 by complications due to HIV/AIDS.[1]
