Rocco Antonio Tano was born in Ortona Mare, Italy. He chose the stage name of Rocco Siffredi from the character “Roch Siffredi” played by actor Alain Delon in the film Borsalino. Siffredi is an Italian actor, director and producer of pornographic films. To date, he has appeared in over 400 porn films. He was also the Playgirl Magazine centerfold in the December, 1990 issue. He is pictured on the front cover wearing an open shirt and tie and at the top of the page is the caption “At last, a centerfold to die for.”
Seffredi was unknowingly the focus on Scherzi a Parte, the Italian version of the US “practical joke” series Punk’d.
