Life and Career

Saul Nanni was born to Samuele Nanni and Mascia Agnani on February 4, 1999 in Bologna, where his parents were working as a doctors. From an early age he was attracted to the entertainment world and in 2011 started doing some auditions. One year later, he was called to play a small role in La Certosa di Parma and Questo nostro amore 70, both Rai 1 miniseries, and some commercials.

From 2013 to 2018, he attended the international liceo scientifico (scientific secondary school) Luigi Galvani in Bologna, with English language discipline. His life changed dramatically the first year of school, as he was chosen for a role in the movie Un boss in salotto that made him move to Alto Adige and Rome for shootings during Spring 2013.[1]

He soon got the most success while playing Christian Alessi in Alex & Co.. After leaving the series in late 2016, he moved to Los Angeles, USA, for some months to attend a theatre course. In 2017, he starred in the TV movie Il Fulgore di Dony and the series Scomparsa, both from Rai 1.
