Brazzi was born in Bologna to Adelmo and Maria (nee Ghedini) Brazzi. He attended San Marco University in Florence, Italy, where he was raised from the age of four. He made his film debut in 1939.
He was propelled to international fame with his role in the English-language film Three Coins in the Fountain (1954), followed by the leading male role in David Lean's Summertime (1955), opposite Katharine Hepburn. His other notable English-language films include The Barefoot Contessa (1954), The Story of Esther Costello (1957), South Pacific (1958), Count Your Blessings (1959),The Light in the Piazza (1962), and The Italian Job (1969).

In 1940, Brazzi married baroness Lidia Bertolini (1921--1981) to whom he was married until her death in 1981. The couple had no children. In 1982, he married Ilse Fischer, a German national, who had been the couple's housekeeper for many years. This marriage was also childless.
