Arcangeli was discovered in 1979 by photographer Helmut Newton in Venice, Italy where he used to live: some of the photographs made the covers of many International magazines: Arcangeli became a fashion model during the 1980's, and he was called by Federico Fellini at Cinecittà Studios in Rome, Italy, for a screen test to play the young lead of a movie that, eventually was unfortunately never made, however the actor worked later in Fellini's "Intervista" (1987) playing exactly himself at the times of that first screen test.
