Riccardo Scamarcio

Of all the sizzling actors that Italy has produced, the 1979 born Riccardo Scamarcio from Puglia is one of the most remarkable presences in Italian cinema today.

From sexy Italian actors, the attention shifts to and Luciano Ligabue and Eros Ramazzotti, both Italian singers of internationally renowned.

Luciano Ligabue

Born in 1960, Luciano Ligabue is one of the best known italian artists, famous for being a rock singer-songwriter. He has also directed movies and written short stories, but what makes him sexy and puts him on this list is his rocker sensibilities, and to-die-for voice.

Some of his best albums include Ligabue, Il mio nome è mai più, Fuori come va?

Besides, the man is also an awesome poet, some of his songs reflect in-depth on the human condition, and the ones on romance are enough to get a woman weak in the knees.

Add to that his rock-star good looks and unforgettable smile, and you get a man who almost epitomizes Italian maleness.

Eros Luciano Walter Ramazzotti is one of the most internationally acclaimed Italian singers, and with good reason. His voice has a peculiar touch, and it has carried him into best-selling territory in many parts of the world.

Eros Ramazzotti

The fact that Ramazzotti releases in Italian and Spanish is also one reason for his popularity beyond the shores of Italy. He has marked his presence in the famous Sanremo festival time and again, and has sung with some megastar names like Andrea Bocelli, Cher, Laura Pausini, Pavarotti and Ricky Martin.

His sexy appeal lies in his voice, and his stage presence, a strange mix of aggression and vulnerability. His face has graced the covers of various magazines. He was married to Swiss actress Michelle Hunziker, and there are rumors that he has recently married Marica Pellegrinelli in a secret ceremony.

Flavio Briatore

It could be a stretch to compare Flavio Briatore, the aging but famous Italian businessman, to Casanova, the Italian sex icon. But as it turns out, the two have a lot in common. Brushes with the law, for one, and having women one-fourth their age as willing companions, for another.

Briatore has had a long and chequered history, which include conviction for fraud, running from the law, setting up different businesses, and dabbling in the management and ownership of Formula 1 teams and football clubs. But he has a reputation among women, too. Heidi Klum, Naomi Campbell and 27-year-old Wonderbra model Elisabetta Gregoraci, have all fallen for his charms. Or maybe for his money. As everyone knows, in some cases, money equals charm.

Paolo Nascimbeni is the owner of Lifeinitaly. Being sexy is all about thinking yourself sexy, and since he has inserted his name into this list on his own initiative, he qualifies! To know more about him though and see his pictures, you would have to ask him, because he is not a celebrity. Yet.
