Michele Morrone (Italian pronunciation: [miˈkɛːle morˈroːne]; born 3 October 1990) is an Italian actor, model, singer, and fashion designer appearing in both Italian and Polish films. He gained international recognition after portraying the role of Massimo Torricelli in the 2020 erotic romantic drama 365 Days.

Early life[edit]

Morrone was born on 3 October 1990 in Reggio Calabria, Italy.[1] He is the youngest of four children, and he has three older sisters. His father worked as a construction worker and died in 2003[2] when Morrone was 12 years old.[3] His mother, Angela, a seamstress, and his father, Natale[1] are both from Bitonto, but moved to Melegnano when their children were young in order to find better employment opportunities.[4]

Morrone decided to become an actor after watching a Harry Potter film at age 11.[3] He began acting in an after school program at his middle school.[5] Morrone repeated his first year of High School after being held back for bad behavior.[6] He then studied professional acting in a theater in the city of Pavia, at the Teatro Fraschini di Pavia.[7]

Morrone's acting career began in 2011 by playing the role of Riccardo in Second Chance,[7] a three-episode web series directed by Piergiorgio Seidita,[8] which was cancelled after one season. He also appeared in a music video by the Italian girl band, Makay, in 2012. After gaining more experience in the field, he started playing lead roles in short films. He acted in Il Tempo di una Sigaretta and E la Vita Continua.[7] He was featured in a drama show titled Che Dio ci Aiuti. His projects include Italian TV series including Come un Delfino (2011), Provaci Ancora (2015), Squadra Antimafia (2015), Sirene (2016), Renata Fonte (2017), Il Processo (The Trial) (2018), and Medici (2018).[7] In 2016, he took part in the eleventh season of the Italian version of Dancing with the Stars (Ballando con le Stelle), where he placed second. In 2019, Morrone played the lead role of Luigi in Bar Giuseppe.

In 2020, Morrone became internationally known after performing the lead role of Massimo Torricelli, a mafia crime boss, in 365 Days. The film was released theatrically in Poland on 7 February 2020 and was subsequently made available on Netflix on 7 June 2020. He signed a three-year contract with the production company and will be filming two more films to complete the trilogy.

Music[edit]

Morrone is a professional guitarist and singer. He learned to play guitar at the age of 25 by watching YouTube videos.[3] He released an album titled Dark Room which has several songs featured in the official 365 dni soundtrack including one of his most famous songs, "Feel It", that has scenes with actress Anna Maria Sieklucka (Laura Biel), from the film, in its music video.[9] The album was released on 14 February 2020 and was produced by label company AGORA S.A.[10]
