Valentino Orsini (19 January 1927 Pisa - 26 January 2001, Cerveteri) was an Italian film director.

After his first interests to arts (he had been sculptor, stage designer, cinema critician, cineclub animator) in his hometown, in 1954 Valentino Orsini directed with the brothers Paolo and Vittorio Taviani (born in the near small city of San Miniato) the documentary San Miniato: luglio 1944. After other documentaries, most with Taviani brothers, he realized his first fiction films in 1962 and in 1963, both with the two brothers. After other documentaries Orsini directed his first fiction film alone, I dannati della terra in 1969.
Despite his few fiction films (but he realized a lot of documentaries all around the world) Orsini is highly considered for his role in renowing Italian cinema in 60s and 70s, facing subjects such as the paesants' fights in Sicily, the divorce, the under-developed countries. More, he was a teacher at Italian Cinema National School. In his last films his civil commitment was less present.

Valentino Urbani (born Udine; fl. 1690–1722) was an Italian alto castrato who sang for the composer George Frideric Handel in the 18th century. He sang the role of Eustazio at the premiere of Handel's Rinaldo, the role of Silvio at the premiere of Il pastor fido, and the role of Egeo at the first performance of Teseo. His powers of singing seem to have been limited and by the time of his Handel roles his voice was declining but he is reputed to have been a fine actor. Charles Burney noted that "his voice was feeble, and his execution moderate", but Cibber praises his acting enthusiastically: "his hearers bore with the absurdity of his singing the part of Turnus in Camilla, all in Italian, while every other character was sung and recited in English".

Urbani was the first castrato to sing regularly in London, and made his début at Drury Lane in 1707. He sang in many different pasticcios and several bilingual operas - operas that were sung in both Italian and English - and had a benefit concert each year. His last known dramatic appearance was in Hamburg in 1722. He had earlier sung at Venice, Parma, Rome, Bologna, and Genoa.

Valentino Leoni (pope Valentine), (in Latin: Valentinus), pope for thirty or forty days in 827, was a Roman by birth, and, according to the Liber Pontificalis, was first made a deacon by Paschal I (817-824). The entries in the Liber Pontificalis at this date are contemporary, added shortly after the death of each pope, and, so, although reflecting biases of the authors, they are at least reasonably accurate. Nothing further is known of Valentine's history.
