Italy’s most famous playboy has died aged 63 while having sex with a 23-year-old tourist.
Maurizio Zanfanti, dubbed the Romeo of Rimini, slept with more than 6,000 women after becoming famous as a nightclub promoter in the beach-side city in the 1970s, according to reports.
He was entertaining a tourist from eastern Europe at his estate on Tuesday night when he suffered a fatal heart attack, Daily Mail Reports.
The shocked woman called paramedics but he could not be revived. Italian media said it was the way he would have wanted to go.
Zanfanti spent his winters in Scandinavia working for tourist agencies. His exploits became so famous that some of his lovers erected a wax statue of him in a Swedish town.
In 1986, Italian newspaper L’Espresso named Zanfanti ‘Italy’s most successful lover.’
In his final interview with German newspaper BILD in 2014, he announced his retirement and said: ‘At 59, I’m getting too old for it.’
