Born in Ancona, Amurri was author of some of the most popular RAI variety shows, such as Canzonissima, Gran Varietà, Fantastico and Studio Uno.[1] He was also author of fourteen books, several of them best sellers, which were mainly collections of short stories consisting of satirical portraits of collapsing family groups.[1][2]

Amurri was the father of the television writer Valentina Amurri and of the film director Franco Amurri;[1] he was also the paternal grandfather of American actress Eva Amurri.
