and yet Anna Maria Aveta, who has at least 5 c.s.c. credits, is not on the list!

Interesting, given that there is usually a ratio of about 5 actors to 1 actress in most Italian films, that it looks like the female graduates had the more successful careers. There are a good number of actresses on the list who went on to become leading ladies (Gabel, Neri, Guida, Valli, Carra, Calamai), but very few men who went on to become lead actors (Rik Battaglia did a few leads early on, but ended up further down the cast lists quite quickly - and his real name is Caterino, who knew!).
Definitely some names on that list that I never knew were educated at C.S.C. I haven't studied the list in any detail, but I see there's also Mariella Lotti, who was also a pretty big name back in the day.

As for actors, there's also Dario Michaelis, who landed a couple of leading roles in the 1950s, though he never became a big star. He's a rather curious case in that he graduated in 1952 according to the list, yet the only times he appears to have been credited with the C.S.C. initials was several years later - in a couple of mid 1960s films. Very strange...

Looking through the list about 30% of the graduates from the 50's and 60's have no credits at all and about another 20% had lengthy careers with no c.s.c. credits. From the remainder who do have credits there are still plenty of new names to add. I'll work my way through the list adding a few each day til I'm done.

Does anybody know why there are no graduates for the 70's and 80's? They seem to stop at the end of the 60's and start again in the 90's.

I've added quite a few more names from the list Johan discovered, sticking to the original remit of only including actors who were credited with c.s.c. in films, but there are plenty of interesting names there who I think are deserving of future topics, and we also have a number of names who are missing from that list for whatever reason.

It would appear that 30-40 per cent of students who graduated never went on to act in films, or at least never had any credited roles.

I think the cause was the great crisis of Italian cinema which started in the mid-70s and continued throughout the eighties. There were many actors but no one was working anymore, so why train others? Probably in the 90s there was a small recovery and that new courses were managed.

I assume if I didn't include him it was because he wasn't on the C.S.C. list, there were a few actors who have C.S.C, credits who weren't on the list (those who don't have dates by their names). It looks like they have re-designed the website and if the list is still there I can no longer find it - the link used to go to it directly but now only goes to the main page of the website. You can always add him.

I have updated the link. Indeed Zerbinati does not appear. I have to find some credit where he have the C.S.C. credit. Maybe they forgot him?

I've added this name: Virginia Onorato. Maybe we can identify her because she made some films.
Here the titles from Mondo pazzo... gente matta! (1966)

Vincent Consey is a new name for me (as are most of this cast!!) who doesn't appear on the official c.s.c. website list. Unusual for them to put c.s.c. on the poster too. I've added him to the mystery c.s.c. actors at the bottom of the main list since this seems to be his only credit - unless it's a pseudonym for someone else...
