BIOGRAPHY OF VALERIO MASTANDREA
Valerio Marco Massimo Maria Mastandrea, known simply as Valerio Mastandrea, is born the February 14, 1972 in Rome, precisely in the Garbatella district, where he grew up. After a difficult adolescence, marked by parental divorce and many personal problems, he writes to Maurizio Costanzo Show to participate in the program, but soon becomes one of the regular guests of the show. He is only 19 years old, he left university and recently made his debut in the theater, when in 1994 he made his debut on the big screen with Cinema thieves of Piero Natoli. To this small role, many others follow, but they are Palermo Milan – One way (1995) and the low-budget film Artichokes will grow in Mimongo (1996) to highlight it. In 1996 he is also the protagonist of the show Infiltrated (1996), his first acting experience on the small screen, and was awarded the Grolla d’oro and the Pardo at the Locarno Film Festival for his interpretation in Everybody on the ground (1997).
Mastandrea does not take long to excel with his acting skills, in fact while at the theater he repeats for several evenings the sold out with Rugantino, the first major roles arrive at the cinema. By now fully affirmed, Mastandrea with his Romanity and pouting face is directed by Giovanni Veronesi in Viola kisses everyone (1997) and works with Marco Giallini, colleague with whom he will share the set several times, ne The smell of the night (1998) and Barbara (1998). In 2002 he won the Pasolini Pigneto Award for Best Actor in Full speed, drama film by Daniele Vicari starring Mastandrea as the mechanic involved in clandestine racing. Vicari himself wrote the story for the actor’s directorial debut with the short film Trevirgola eighty-seven (2005) on the problem of white deaths in Italy, on average 3.87 per day.
In these years Mastandrea with his tough side takes part more in dramatic films, such as Love me (2005) or The horizon of events (2005), although he repeatedly proves to be able to bring out a substantial dose of comedy when necessary, which he had already demonstrated in the video clip “Supercafone” by Er Piotta and which will crop up in No message on the answering machine (2005) of Paolo Genovese is Luca Miniero. In 2006 he starred together with Giallini in the sitcom Bouncer, completely focused on the dialogues between the two, ranging from sarcasm to philosophical. Soon from the cinema other awards arrive for Mastandrea for his actoriality and this is how in a few years he receives his first nomination for the David di Donatello – the first of a long series – as Best Supporting Actor for N- Napoleon and me (2006), the one at the Golden Globe for Night bus (2007) and the nomination to the Ciak d’oro with Whole life ahead (2008). It will be with comedy Forget about it (2007), from which a TV series of the same name will also be taken – which Mastandrea will be able to obtain, as well as the second David nomination, the Ciak d’oro for Best Actor in the role of rock musician Stefano Nardini.
Later he is directed by Ferzan Ozpetek in A perfect day (2008) with Isabella Ferrari and the following year takes part in Nine (2009) directed by Rob Marshall, where he acts alongside international stars such as Daniel Day- Lewis, Pené; lope Cruz is Sophia Loren. In 2010 he finally managed to win the David di Donatello and also won a nomination for the Silver Ribbons with the comedy by Paolo Virzì, The first beautiful Thing (2010). The David di Donatello seem very fond of the Roman actor, who not even two years later, in 2012, was renamed again, this time with the historian Novel of a massacre, where he plays commissioner Luigi Calabresi. In the same year, the dramatic also comes out in theaters The Equilibrists (2012), for which the following year he won the David, the Pasinetti Award at the Venice Film Festival and two nominations, one for the Golden Globe and one Silver Ribbon with what can be defined as one of his best interpretations .
Loved by the Italian public for his versatility, by women for his sex appeal and by Roman spectators so much so that he is nicknamed the “fourth king of Rome”, Mastandrea never ceases to amaze Italian cinema, which promptly repays him for his masterful interpretations . Even when he is not the protagonist, the actor amazes and highlights himself, as well as in Long live the freedom (2013), for which he won yet another David and the Ciak as a supporting actor. He demonstrates more and more his eclecticism, moving from comedy with The chair of happiness (2013) in more dramatic tones with Happiness is a complex system (2015), up to the real drama, with the bio-pic Pasolini (2014) of Abel Ferrara. Back to share the set with old friends, including Giallini and Joseph Battiston, and more recent, such as Edoardo Leo, Alba Rohrwacher and many others, in the hit comedy Perfect strangers (2016) by Genovese, whose entire cast was awarded the special Silver Ribbon. Team that wins, you don’t change and so in 2017 the director returns with part of the previous cast for a new success, The Place, a dramatic film in which Mastandrea is given the mysterious leading role. 2018 wants him in his first sci-fi film, Tito and the aliens, in which he plays a scientist looking for aliens and slightly out of his mind.
