Fabio Lanzoni, widely known simply as Fabio, is a famous international Italian fashion model, spokesperson and actor who appeared on the cover of hundreds of romance novels throughout the 1980s and 1990s.

He became famous as a model for kitschy romance novel covers, the first of which was Hearts Aflame in 1987. He has even co-penned a series of romance novels.Later on, he ventured into television making a few small movie appearances (including cameos trading on his fame as a model), and roles on TV series like the short-lived Acapulco H.E.A.T. (1993) and the soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful a number of times, as a close friend of the character Sally Spectra (Fabio and Sally's portrayer, Darlene Conley, are close friends in real life.)Fabio is a frequent guest on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, where he consistently garners laughs with his campy quality. He has also starred in commercials for I Can't Believe It's Not Butter and Wickes Furniture. Fabio is also known amongst video game enthusiasts for his box cover pose for the NES game Ironsword: Wizards and Warriors II in 1988.On March 30, 1999, Fabio made news after being hit by a low-flying bird while riding the roller coaster Apollo's Chariot at Busch Gardens, Virginia. The bird, which one park guest claimed to be a goose, slammed into Fabio's face during a 210-foot drop, leaving an inch-long laceration on the model's nose. After the ride ended, he was rushed to Williamsburg Community Hospital where he was promptly treated and released.
