Long after the days of Giacomo Casanova, Italians are still stealing the hearts of women the world over. According to a recent survey in Europe, they are more desireable than both the French and the Spanish.

As a result, The Local decided to delve into the world of the Italian stallion, uncovering the ten most desired Italian men.
While a few actors make the cut, the list also includes a beautiful ballet dancer, a fashion executive, a swimmer and a couple of footballers.
