The actor ribbon went to Kim Rossi Stewart for his role as a Milan mob boss in “Angel of Evil,” Fox Intl. Prods.’ first foray in Italy. The biopic also nabbed nods for editing and music.

Alba Rohrwacher took the actress award for her role as an emotionally scarred woman in Saverio Costanzo’s “The Solitude of Prime Numbers.” Her sister, Alice Rohrwacher, reaped the prize for debut helmer with “Corpo Celeste,” about Catholic education in southern Italy, which screened in Cannes Directors’ Fortnight.
