YES! Great idea! This is another very familiar face.

And here of course a picture of his role in Il secondo tragico Fantozzi (1976)

I've also found a nice little role for him in 3-part TV series Il furto della Gioconda (1978) as an art expert who examines the Mona Lisa and verifies that it is authentic

Unfortunately he is uncredited...

He also appears in some scenes as a poker player in La città gioca d'azzardo (1975)

Gentleman i have another wonderful news, after the 200 roles for Maria, now we have the name of our croupier !!

Today i was watching an episode of the tv series La famiglia Benvenuti

Here our friend have a nice little speaking role as neighbour of Enrico Maria Salerno, and as always he is playing cards
renatobenvenuti.png
renatobenvenuti1.png
renatobenvenuti2.png
So i check the cast list, to see if he was credited and i found RENATO MARZANO in the role of Stelvio acqua storti.
Our friend was not called by name in this tv-movie, but RENATO MARZANO have other credits so i checked first IMDB and the CIDB
And the both lists RENATO MARZANO in IL PROFETA (1968)
And in IL PROFETA our couprier is actually present with a speaking role !!! (a judge)

But i also search on the ANICA WEBSITE for more movies with RENATO MARZANO
And they listed:
COLPO DI STATO (1969)
DIVINA CREATURA (1975)

I had seen colpo di stato the other day, and just look who have a role here:
renatocolpo.png
Yes our friend

So i checked also DIVINA CREATURA for the final confirmation, and look who is among the party guests:

p.s. also i was able to give a name to all the Others males roles in the sceneggiato la famiglia benvenuti,so there is no doubt our friend is renato.

So let me officialy introduced to you COUNT RENATO MARZANO DI SESSA !!!
Yes my friends our Renato was our the nobleman generici !!!

reactions:
Vecchiaguardia: Good!
Carlos: Congratulations!
Johan Melle: Excellent! A belated congratulations on this terrific discovery!

Another croupier role - this time in Camille 2000 (1969)

He's present at some sort of meeting (not exactly sure what it is) near the end of Giovannona Coscialunga disonorata con onore (1973)
