Biography

Fabio Testi débute au cinéma en tant que doublure, dans Le Bon, la Brute et le Truand, de Sergio Leone. Après avoir interprété ses premiers vrais rôles dans des western-spaghettis à petit budget, il apparaît en 1970 dans un film plus prestigieux, Le Jardin des Finzi-Contini, de Vittorio De Sica. Il donne ensuite la réplique à Charlotte Rampling dans Dommage qu'elle soit une putain et à Claudia Cardinale dans Les Gouapes. Devenu une vedette du cinéma italien des années 1970, il alterne films de genre et films d'auteur, apparaissant également, grâce au jeu des coproductions européennes, dans divers films français, comme Le Tueur, de Denys de La Patellière ou Nada, de Claude Chabrol. Il tient le rôle masculin principal de L'important c'est d'aimer d'Andrzej Żuławski, aux côtés de Romy Schneider et Jacques Dutronc.
