Life and careerEdit

Born in Rome, after his debut as a stage actor, Marconi had his breakout role in 1977 playing Gavino Ledda in the Paolo and Vittorio Taviani's drama film Padre Padrone.[1] For his performance in that film he was nominated to a BAFTA Award and won the Nastro d'Argento for best new actor.[2][3]

After some other significant roles in films directed by, among others, Gillo Pontecorvo, Luigi Comencini and Pasquale Squitieri, in the mid-eighties Marconi retired from acting to devote himself to a career of stage director, especially of Italian editions of famous American musicals.[1][3]
