Giovanni Nannini passed away on Saturday night in Florence at the age of 90. His first love was the Theatre for which he is best know here in Italy. Nannini appeared in minor film roles first in the film Toto cerca pace, Toto is looking for Peace directed by Mario Mattoli back in 1954 and he was still making films in 2009 where he appeared in Piove sul bagnato directed by Andrea Muzzi and Bruno Andrea Savilli . His most succesful  film was no doubt Tea with Mussolini, Un te con Mussolini directed by Franco Zeffirelli in 1999, where he played the part of  Sacristan.
