Biography

Foà was born in Ferrara, Italy, to a Jewish family, though Foà was an atheist in his adult life.[1] Foà completed high school in Florence, where he moved with his family, and studied at the acting school of Rasi. He abandoned his studies in economics and at age 20 moved to Rome, where he attended the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia.

He was initiated to the Italian Scottish Rite Freemasonry in 1947 at the Lodge "Alpi Giulie" n.150 (in Rome),[2][3] taking later the highest degree.[4][5]

Foà died on 11 January 2014 from respiratory failure, just 13 days short of his 98th birthday.[6]
