Mr Massimo Rainieri, an accomplished Italian actor, singer and playwright, has long used his immense popularity as a performer and an actor to speak out on social issues.

He has regularly participated in campaigns to draw attention to the less privileged in his home country, and he has often urged his audiences to show solidarity with the under privileged.

When he was appointed FAO Ambassador in 2002 he said: "I am in a privileged position. Every morning I wake up thinking how lucky I am for the things I have received in life. If I can help FAO to convey their worthwhile message, by giving poor people a chance to live and a chance in life, then this is, in a small way, my way of repaying the debt."
