Giuseppe Ravenna in Colpo di stato (1969)

ravennacolpo.png

Here is another generico who appears everywhere. I recently found his name, and this makes me very happy because i research for years in order to found his name.
He do have an important role in Colpo di stato (1969), and thanks to Buono Legnani who told me what role he plays in the movie, because the youtube copy is almost with no audio, this was important because in the book Bianco e nero, Giuseppe Ravenna is credited as General di Lorenzo, and in the movie he plays the generale Di Lorenzo.
So welcome to this new friend, finally !

As i told you in Colpo di stato he have an important role as general di Lorenzo, and since they try to use look a like to famous politician you can see that in this case they made a very good choice

here Giuseppe
giuseppecolpo1.png
And here the real general

https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giovanni_de_Lorenzo

I can see that this generico always have a monocle, so he is easy to spot him, but i noticed he also wear the same tie in many movies


You can see the same tie in Io, io, io... e gli altri (1966) as a politician
giuseppeioio.png

And same tie in a nice speaking role in Italiani! È severamente proibito servirsi della toilette durante le fermate (1969) as tv game player

And here party guest with Irina Wassilchikoff in Il Prof. Dott. Guido Tersilli primario della Clinica Villa Celeste convenzionata con le mutue (1969) where he is called Ammiraglio

Wedding guest in Come imparai ad amare le donne (1967)
giuseppecomeimparai.png

And some roles from the 1970's with our friend off course much older

A nice speaking one from Spogliamoci così senza pudor (1976) as Pattirborn family friend, and if you see the dress it looks the same he wears in Il Prof. Dott. Guido Tersilli, it have the same little pin on the right and the same white pochette

Party guest of the contessa in Il secondo tragico Fantozzi (1976)
Secondo Tragico Fantozzi - Giuseppe Ravenna1.jpg
Secondo Tragico Fantozzi - Giuseppe Ravenna2.jpg

One of the thousands of generici in the famous resturant scene of Continuavano a chiamarlo Trinità (1971), again with his monocle and at the same table of Lella Cattaneo

Awful quality but this is Giuseppe as party guest in Io e lui (1973)

Here on the sofà
giuseppeioe.png
giuseppeio1.png

And as one of the many generici in the resturant in Paolo Barca maestro elementare praticamente nudista (1974)
giuseppepaolobarca.png

Also i can see that Giuseppe is credited in another Salce movies La cuccagna (1962) and i think i have found him again as a military man in a little speaking role
giuseppecuccagna.png
giuseppecuccagna1.png
Off course he is a little younger, but this was 7 years before Colpo di stato, and from the pshycic (noise, chin and his monocle) im quite sure is him.


He is credited also in Il dolce corpo di Deborah (1968) but he is nowhere to be found in this movie

Giuseppe often wears also a pair of glasses, which makes him a little older

Here in La bambolona (1968) with Domenico Ravenna
giuseppebambolona.png
giuseppebambolona1.png
To notice he have a little white beard, cut in the same way he have in his 1976's movies

In Maestro di violino (1976)
giuseppemaestro.png
giuseppemaestro1.png

And very old in Le braghe del padrone (1978), one of his last movies so far as member of the board

And again with his glasses in Adulterio all'italiana (1966) together with Vittorio Caprioli !
