If you live in Italy, chances are you have heard Giovanni’s voice many times on national TV and radio commercials or maybe in a film trailer, a TV promo, a cartoon or a lot of other media and applications.

You will certainly recognise Giovanni’s voice on the Vodafone customer services automated phone system!

Or if you like video games and cartoons, then you will be very familiar with Giovanni’s voice! Among many others, Giovanni is the voice of Nintendo’s best selling game Wii Fit! If you are one of the millions of Italians who like working out while having fun with their Nintendo Wii, then you will like to know that the soothing, calm, reassuring voice of your Wii Fit personal trainer belongs to Giovanni! And could you guess that the raspy, manly, adrenalin-pumping voice of the Wii Fit boxer trainer is... still Giovanni’s?

You will also recognise Giovanni as the announcer (only voice in the video game!) in Pokémon Battle Revolution, another amazing Wii video game based on the renowned Pokémon cartoon series!

Giovanni is also the official voice of Nintendo’s game tutorials and feature presentations! Listen to him on Nintendo’s website!

Giovanni has voiced hundreds of characters for the best selling video games for all major gaming platforms including PC, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, PSP, Xbox, Xbox 360, GameCube and Wii.

If you live in the UK, you will be familiar with Giovanni's voice as it’s on TV in many commercials and documentaries for the BBC, Channel 4, ITV, CNN, Discovery and a lot of digital channels, or on the radio on BBC Radio, Virgin Radio, talkSPORT and many more stations!

If you live in the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, India, AE or any other countries where English is spoken, then you have heard Giovanni’s on TV and radio commercials for any Italian products and brands or any commercials and documentaries requiring an authentic Italian accent, yet in an English that is smooth, pleasant and easily understood by all English-speaking audiences. In fact, Giovanni’s fluency in English is almost native-like, so he is definitely the best choice for foreign markets, and even more so as he can make his Italian accent lighter or stronger as required.
Giovanni is hired all the time for commercials of fine Italian cars, fashion, jewellery, foods and restaurants around the world and to voice many typical Italian stereotype characters e.g. mafia bosses, womanisers, restaurant owners, chefs, opera singers, etc.

The versatility of Giovanni’s voice paired with his strong acting background, plus a great deal of personal talent, enable him to provide a multitude of different voicing styles and moods.

Giovanni can easily switch from a deep rich voice to friendly, lighter and softer tones. His voice can be soft, warm, smooth, sophisticated, dreamy, intimate, sensual, sexy, breathy, stylish, aristocratic, suggestive, serious, institutional, informative, announcing, matter-of-fact, caring, concerned, friendly, joyful, posh, sincere, easy-going, energetic, excited, authoritative, tough, row, gravelly, raspy, in-your-face, nasty, evil, malicious, upset, enraged, sarcastic, ironic, allusive, middle-class, upper-class, lower-class - or anything else you could imagine! Just name it and Giovanni will work his magic for you!!

Artistically born as a character actor, Giovanni can adapt his voice to any requirements, evoking powerful images in the listener’s mind and bringing to life from the funniest cartoon character to the most formal and institutional corporate narrator to the darkest master of the underworld for the latest horror video game!

But Giovanni's talent doesn't end with TV/radio work or character voices!

Giovanni is the voice of choice of the most prestigious and globally recognised blue-chip corporate clients who regularly rely on his professional, polished and convincing corporate style to convey their important messages.

From Microsoft to Intel, Hewlett-Packard, Canon and IBM, only to mention very few, if they are major global players, they want Giovanni to be their voice!

This was the first time I have used Voices.com for my radio production and I was very pleased, because Giovanni Noto was a pleasure to work with. I hired him to help produce a 60-second radio spot that featured a script in both Italian and English. Giovanni provided prompt feedback and an excellent radio spot that was produced at a very high standard. I would recommend Giovanni to anyone, anytime.

Dear Giovanni,

Thank you for the great recording!

My customer ask for a few very small changes (a few different words in one sentence).

I will clarify the details with him on Monday and I will indicate them in a separate e-mail to you, just take a look if you can do it as part of this project or if you would like to charge for this (small) change.

Grazi, best regards,

Ivo Henckens

Professional, fast delivery and takes direction really well.

Giovanni was able to recreate the exact voice I heard in my head for my animated character. He gave me lots of performance options and alternate takes to choose from. I highly recommend him!

I look forward to working with Giovanni again!
