Italian film and theatre actor and dubber.
Montagnani debuted as a theatre actor thanks to the help of Erminio Macario. His first cinema success was his dramatic role in Metello (1970), but he later switched to the 'commedia all'italiana' with his roles in the last two chapters of the Amici miei series (1982 and 1985). In the 1980s he also participated to a TV show as Don Fumino, an easy-speaking Tuscan parish priest.
Montagnani also intensively worked as a dubber, dubbing actors such as Michel Piccoli, Charles Bronson and Philippe Noiret for the Italian version of movies.
In his later years he participated in numerous 'commedia sexy all'italiana' films, often pairing with Edwige Fenech, the most popular actress of the genre, and also with Alvaro Vitali as the comic sidekick. Montagnani died in Rome of cancer on 22 May 1997.
