BIOGRAPHY OF RICCARDO SCAMARCIO
Riccardo Dario Scamarcio was born in Trani, Puglia, on November 13, 1979. Rebellious boy and undisciplined student, he moved to Rome in the second half of the 90s and studied acting at Experimental Center of Cinematography, where he learned the trade with Mirella Bordoni, Mino Bellei, Marco Baliani and Nicolai Karpov. After a short apprenticeship with photo novels, he made his debut on television in 2001, starring in the series Classmates. Almost simultaneously he participates in the two-part miniseries Love your enemy 2.
Scamarcio’s debut in front of the camera takes place in 2002 with the film by Lucio Pellegrini Now or never.
The next year Marco Tullio Giordana he entrusts him with a small part of it The best youth. The actor appears only in the final scenes of the film, but still stands out. The stroke of luck arrives the following year thanks to the film based on the novel by Federico Moccia Three meters above the sky, Sentimental Bible of the teenagers of northern Rome. He is called to transform it into celluloid Luca Lucini, that among many boys chooses Riccardo Scamarcio for the role of Step, a grumpy biker and a bit of a hooligan who falls in love with the good high schooler Babi. The film was a resounding success, also thanks to the song by Tiziano Ferro “Dark nights“, and Riccardo becomes the idol of teenagers.
After Three meters above the sky – which in reality for the actor is subsequent to Try to fly is The smell of blood – Scamarcio becomes one of the faces most requested by Italian directors. Self Lucini draws him to the romantic comedy The perfect man (2005), Fausto Paravidino makes him play one of the young and listless protagonists of Texas (2005). On the set of the film the actor knows Valeria Golino, with which he begins a relationship that still lasts today. Also in 2005 Michele Placido entrusts him with the part of Black in Criminal novel, film reduction of the homonymous book by Giancarlo De Cataldo: in the fresco on the Band of the Magliana Scamarcio he’s perfect with the gun and the leather jacket – too bad his character disappears soon.
In 2007 Riccardo Scamarcio he is directed by four directors. Luis Prieto asks him to impersonate again Step in I want you, while in Love manual 2 – Subsequent chapters Giovanni Veronesi makes him the protagonist of a hot scene with Monica Bellucci. They complete the group Abel Ferrara (with Go Go Tales) and especially Daniele Luchetti, which supports the actor a Elio Germano in My brother is an only child, abridged from Antonio Pennacchi’s Fascist Communist. Scamarcio concludes the decade dividing himself between comedies – like Italians (2009) – and films that tell our hottest political history – we think of The big dream (2009) and The first line (2009), in which is the militant Sergio Segio. We must also not forget the collaboration with Sergio Rubini – who wants it so much in the refined Glance (2008), as much as in the more light-hearted The boogeyman (2009) – and the partnership with Costa-Gavras, which directs it in Towards Eden (2009). The latter film is presented at the Berlin Film Festival and the actor proves to be perfectly up to the task entrusted to him by the Greek director: acting without speaking.
The following decade opens under the banner of Wandering Mines (2010), in which Riccardo is a young homosexual struggling with a retrograde family. Another important step is Red and blue (2012) of Giuseppe Piccioni, in which the actor acts together with Margherita Buy is Roberto Herlitzka and plays a young substitute for literature. During the same period he has the opportunity to fill a small role in To Rome With Love of Woody Allen and to work with Francesco Amato in Cosimo and Nicole, which wins the Perspectives Italy section of the seventh Rome International Film Festival.
2013 for Scamarcio, on the other hand, is the year of A small southern company – in which he is a former priest confined to the countryside by his mother – both of important experience as a manufacturer. The film is Honey, debut in the direction of Valeria Golino. Satisfied with the result, Riccardo Scamarcio repeats the experiment with The Obscene Life of Renato De Maria (2014). Always in 2014, is directed by Pupi Avati in A golden boy – where he splits more than one scene with Sharon Stone – and renews the collaboration with Abel Ferrara. The author of The Bad Lieutenant entrusts him with the character of Ninetto Davoli in Pasolini, bringing it to the Venice Film Festival. In 2015, Riccardo appears in the ensemble film of Taviani brothers Wonderful Boccaccio and lets himself be guided by Sergio Castellitto in Nobody saves himself alone next to Jasmine Trinca, stepping into the shoes of the failed screenwriter Gaetano. Winner of a Golden Ciak and three Golden Globes, Riccardo Scamarcio it also has some television dramas behind it – like The black arrow (2006). His most significant recent theatrical experience is the part of Romeo Montecchi a version of Romeo and Juliet directed by Valerio Binasco.
