Born in Naples, Italy, Satta Flores graduated from the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia in the Italian capital city of Rome. He began acting in amateur dramatics at the Piccolo Teatro, where he acted in Shakespeare and Sbragia plays. He made his cinema debut in the film The Lizards (I basilischi), premiered by filmmaker Lina Wertmüller in 1963.
In 1971, Satta Flores appeared in the film Four Flies on Grey Velvet but did not really establish himself in cinema until 1974, when he appeared in Ettore Scola's film We All Loved Each Other So Much where he shared leading roles with Stefania Sandrelli, Vittorio Gassman, Nino Manfredi, Aldo Fabrizi and Giovanna Ralli.
Satta Flores also appeared in the 1973 films The Funny Face of the Godfather and Teresa the Thief. His last film appearance before his death was in One Hundred Days in Palermo. He was best known for playing a variety of roles in more than 60 films. He was also a voice dubber. His role as the smuggler and rakish hero Han Solo (portrayed by Harrison Ford) in the Italian dub of the Star Wars original trilogy was instrumental in establishing the importance of star power in Italian voice acting. He also used his voice talents in Alien, as the fearless Captain Dallas, as well as in 10, as the romantically-obsessed songwriter George Webber.
An eloquent spokesman on artistic and social issues of the day, he also was a respected playwright and occasionally acted in television programs. A political commitment, he founded the company I compagni di scena (The Companions of the Scene) with which he devoted himself to research work on alternative tests.
Satta Flores died in Rome on October 22nd 1985 at the age of 48 years, following complications from leukemia treatment. In the Italian version of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the voice of Han Solo was passed on to Harrison Ford's regular Italian dub actor Michele Gammino.
