Guistino Durano

Birthplace: Not Available
An Italian actor who worked in nearly every medium that demands the talents of a thespian, Guistino Durano appeared in vaudeville, feature films, and nearly every imaginable variation in between in his enduring career. Born in Brindisi, Italy, Durano launched his career on the stage. Collaborating with such noted figures as Dario Fo and Patrice Chéreau at the renowned Piccolo Teatro in Milan, Durano later segued into feature films with early roles in What a Woman (1956) and alongside Vincent Price and Ricardo Montalban in The Black Pirate (1961). Continuing to appear onscreen through the mid-'70s, Durano disappeared from film through the remainder of the decade to the late '90s, when he turned up as Guido's ill-fated uncle in Roberto Benigni's acclaimed Life Is Beautiful (for which he would win the Nastro d'Argento award for Best Supporting Actor). Though he would appear in a few more films in the new millennium, Durano's long and varied career sadly came to an end when he died of cancer in early 2002. He was 79. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
