Tullio Carminati (21 September 1894 – 26 February 1971) was an Italian actor.

He rose to fame in Italy and the United States initially as a silent film-actor, starring in such films as The Duchess of Buffalo (1926), The Bat (1926), Honeymoon Hate (1927), and Three Sinners (1928) alongside Pola Negri. Carminati went on to star in Stage Madness (1927), One Night of Love (1934),[1] Let's Live Tonight (1935), Paris in Spring (1935) and Three Maxims (1936). In the latter part of his career he starred in such movies as Beauty and the Devil (1950), Roman Holiday (1953), War and Peace (1956), A Breath of Scandal (1960), El Cid (1961), and The Cardinal (1963).

Beside his film roles, Carminati starred in several plays, including Joan of Arc at the Stake (which was later adapted into Rossellini's movie of the same name[2]) and Broadway productions Strictly Dishonorable and Music in the Air.


Carminati was born into an Italian family in Zara (today Zadar, Croatia), then belonging to the Austro-Hungarian Empire.[3]

After achieving his first successes on the theatrical scene with the companies of Ettore Paladini and Ermete Novelli, he had the opportunity to make his debut in the world of cinema, around 1914, thanks to his elegant and refined presence.[4]

He took part in about thirty silent films before founding his own production house in the late 1910s.[3]

In 1921 he obtained such popularity, thanks to his interpretation in The Lady with the Camellias (from the novel of the same name by Alexandre Dumas) alongside Alda Borelli, as to induce the diva Eleonora Duse to offer him the direction of her company.[4][1]

He staged Duse's last performances, including The Lady from the Sea written by Henrik Ibsen and The Closed Door by Emilio Praga.

During the year 1924 he moved to Germany and two years later in the United States, where he continued his career with some success until 1940. During the Unites States period he made a single participation in an Italian-French production in 1934.[4]

In America he participated in the 725 performances of the comedy Strictly Dishonorable, being acclaimed for his role as "Latin lover".[4] In this period he also devoted himself to musical comedies, thus also performing as a singer. In 1932 he was Bruno Mahler in the world premiere of Jerome Kern's Music in the Air at Broadway's Alvin Theater, with Al Shean, Walter Slezak and Marjorie Main, reprising the role in the 1933 premiere at Broadway's 44th Street Theatre.

After the beginning of the hostilities of the Second World War he returned to Italy where he was active the most from that moment, although he continued to participate in French, Spanish and American productions.[3]

His films of the latter period include l'Antigone (1946), directed by Luchino Visconti, and René Clair's Beauté du diable (1950).[3]

In 1953 he starred as Saint Dominic in Joan of Arc at the Stake alongside Ingrid Bergman, Marcella Pobbe, Miriam Pirazzini, Agnese Dubbini, Giacinto Prandelli and Piero De Palma at the San Carlo Theater in Naples. In 1954 the play was adapted into a movie directed by Roberto Rossellini.

He died in Rome on February 26, 1971.[3]
