Life and careerEdit
Born in Milan, Carraro started acting at young age in several amateur stage companies. Carraro then graduated at the Accademia dei filodrammatici, and in 1941 he got his first personal critical success with his performance in an adaptation of Anna Karenina. In 1952 he made his film debut, in the Duilio Coletti's war film I sette dell'Orsa Maggiore. The same year, Carraro became first actor at the Piccolo Teatro in Milan, starting a long and critically appreciated collaboration with the director Giorgio Strehler. Carraro is also well known for his television work, which include some very successful RAI miniseries, particularly Sandro Bolchi's Il Mulino del Po, I Miserabili and I promessi sposi and Vittorio Cottafavi's A come Andromeda.
