When you call a man a Casanova, you know you’re describing a sexy man, a serial lover. The original, Giovanni Giacomo Casanova de Seingalt ((1725-1798), was of course an Italian man, and he is as good a place as any to begin a list of sexy Italian men, despite the fact that he was mostly a rogue.
Marcello Mastroianni(1924-1996), another legendary Italian film actor, is the next on the list of sexy men from Italy. An Italian icon from the movie La Dolce Vita by renowned director Frederico Fellini, this dashing actor made quite an impression on women all over the world in his hey-days, and was known for his effortless, cynical charm.

Accorsi is worshipped by many women for his sauve good looks and his urbane, accessible charm, but he is not shy in the acting department either.
He has won various awards, notably the Coppa Volpi, the award for best male performance as the Italian poet Dino Campana in the film Un viaggio chiamato amore (A Journey Called Love). He is engaged to the French supermodel, Laetitia Casta and they have two children Orlando and Athena.
Raoul Bova' s piercing eyes are as much of an asset as the rest of him. Women around the world drool over this hunk who at one point was known as the sex symbol of Italian cinema with his Una storia italiana, a TV movie, and later Piccolo grande amore by Carlo Vanzina.
