Post lot text
Nino Manfredi was an influential Italian actor, director, singer, screenwriter and personality of the Dolce Vita period, noted for his work in the genre of the Commedia Italiana. During his 54 years’ career, he won many awards including the David di Donatello, the Prix de la Première Oeuvre at the Cannes Film Festival and the Nastro d’Argento, which named one of its prizes after him. He collaborated with renowned directors such as Ettore Scola, Dino Risi and Vittorio de Sica. He met his partner Erminia in 1955, asked for her hand a week after their meeting, and stayed with her for 49 years. Erminia, a former fashion model, was Nino’s professional partner in many of his theatrical plays, working as a scenographer. After Nino’s death in 2004, she joined forces with the charity Viva la Vita in the fight against Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis.
