Italian actor who appeared in 107 films between 1939 and 1969.
The son of the journalist and playwright Vincenzo Tieri, Aroldo Tieri moved to Rome at 18 to study law at university, and in the meanwhile approached acting and enrolled at the Accademia Nazionale di Arte Drammatica Silvio D'Amico. Graduated in 1938, he almost immediately made his debut in theatre and in film. Soon Tieri became one of the most popular and appreciated young actors, with a predisposition to the comic genre. In cinema Tieri specialized in roles of jealous, irascible, nervous boyfriends, and this characterization limited his career and caused his retirement from films in the late 1960s.
His versatility was revealed especially on stage and on television, that at the end of the 1950s gave him notoriety with a successful adaptation of the Dickens' novel Nicholas Nickleby and then as host of Canzonissima in 1960. Companion for many years of the actress Giuliana Lojodice, later his wife, Tieri formed a stage company with her in 1965 and the couple was very active in multiple projects in theatre, radio and TV.
He died on 28 December 2006, aged 89, in Rome.
