Born in Milan, Mori started his career in the 1950s, appearing on several television series and acting on stage. Starting from the 1970s, he was often cast in roles of inspectors, police commissioners and men in uniform in poliziotteschi and crime films and TV-series, notably Il marsigliese and La piovra.[2][3]

A co-founder of Sefit, the largest Italian company of dubbing, he was the official voice of Morgan Freeman, James Earl Jones and John Rhys-Davies, among other actors. He also substituted for his colleague Sergio Fiorentini as the Italian voice of Gene Hackman.[2]
