Adriano Celentano is probably one of the most important singers of Italian pop music, but has also been a creator of a comic genre in the movies, with his characteristic walking and his facial expressions. For the most part, his films were commercially successful, in fact in the 70s and part of the 80s, he was the king of the Italian box office in low budget movies. Probably, as an actor, his best film is Serafino (1968), directed by Pietro Germi. As a director he frequently casts Ornella Muti, Eleonora Giorgi and his wife Claudia Mori. He and Claudia are the parents of Rosalinda Celentano and Rosita Celentano. He also works often as a host for several Italian television shows.
