Fortunato graduated in 1991 from L'Accademia d'Arte Drammatica of Calabria, run by Alvaro Piccardi and Luciano Lucignani. In 1990 Fortunato earned a certificate for his three years at L'Accademia del Teatro Diana in Naples, run by Guglielmo Guidi, during which he traveled broadly (Switzerland, Netherlands, Poland, Argentina) to study and to attend seminars about improvisation, voice training and body language. In 1995, he was an entertainer at Harrods in London. In 2000, he was part of the Chekhov Theatre Project directed by Anton Milenin.

In 2009, he joined the casts of "Distretto di polizia 9," directed by Alberto Ferrari, and of "R.I.S. – Delitti imperfetti 6," and, a year later, of "Distretto di polizia 10."

On the big screen, Fortunato was part of the cast of "La via degli angeli" (1998), directed by Pupi Avati, and of "Caro domani" (1999), directed by Mariantonia Avati. Fortunato appeared in "Ribelli per caso" (2006), "Lascia perdere," "Johnny!" (2007), directed by Fabrizio Bentivoglio, "Gomorra" (2009), by Matteo Garrone, and in "Fortapàsc: Il caso Siani" (2008), directed by Marco Risi.

Since 1990 Fortunato has also written for theater and directed many shows, most recently "Potevo far fuori la Merkel, ma non l'ho fatto" and "Edipo a Terzigno."

In 2015, Fortunato was seen in the German TV movie "Auf kurze Distanz" ("At Close Range"), directed by Philipp Kadelbach and produced by UFA Fiction.
