The actor Bruno Torrisi was born in Giarre (CT) and decided to live in the town of Etna despite his considerable work commitments always take him out. An artist who on tiptoe has slowly established himself to the general public first starting as a theatrical actor and then moving on to cinema and television. He became popular for his roles in television dramas beginning with the Police Commissioner Licata in the series Squadra Antimafia-Palermo Oggi and then in Rosy Abate La Serie which gained a remarkable audience and appreciation from television audiences. His training as an actor was hard and tiring, however he managed to emerge with the solid and qualified training obtained at the School of Dramatic Art of the Teatro Stabile di Catania. During these years he has played increasingly demanding parts in Mafia films and in those that have been set in Sicily. Remember that he played roles in the fiction: “The Inspector Montalbano”; “Paolo Borsellino”; “The last of the Corleonesi”; “The head of the leaders”; “The island of secrets-Kore”; “Carabinieri 6”; “R.I.S. 4”; “A case of conscience 4”; “The third truth”; “The child of Sunday” and “Bread and freedom”.
