As mentioned by Ciavazzaro, Amerigo Santarelli was particularly active in peplum films and (just like his friend Veriano Ginesi) he was very often used to play the role of the torturer. Here are three examples - all uncredited:

I cavalieri del diavolo (1959)

Gli amori di Ercole (1960)

But he wasn't always the torturer. Here he's a senator in Totò e Cleopatra (1963)

And as a prison guard in La sfida dei giganti (1965)

And here are two very brief and uncredited television roles.

First with Lina Alberti in the TV series Le inchieste del commissario Maigret - episode: "Non si uccidono i poveri diavoli" (1966)

And here very briefly as a street spectator in the famous Il segno del comando (1971)

And here in one of his final films as a prisoner mopping the floor in Detenuto in attesa di giudizio (1971)

A nice early role for Amerigo in Giorni d'amore (1954)
Giorni D'Amore - Amerigo Santarelli.jpg

Another early and very brief role as a soldier scared of a black cat in Amori di mezzo secolo (1954)
Amori Mezzo Secolo - Amerigo Santarelli.jpg

It's also important to note that Amerigo appeared in many, many fotoromanzi, but the most prestigious one is surely "Sei nata per me", published in Grand Hotel from N. 719 (2 April 1960) to N. 744 (24 September 1960).

Here, Amerigo appears in a wonderful role as a gangster (and, once again, together with Veriano Ginesi)
