Life and careerEdit

Born in Milan, Carraro started acting at young age in several amateur stage companies.[1] Carraro then graduated at the Accademia dei filodrammatici [it], and in 1941 he got his first personal critical success with his performance in an adaptation of Anna Karenina.[1] In 1952 he made his film debut, in the Duilio Coletti's war film I sette dell'Orsa Maggiore.[1] 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.[1][2] 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.[1][2]
