Marco Stefanelli in Intervista Istituto Luce 1988
Born in Roma, on September 30, 1955, Marco Stefanelli is the son of the stuntman and stunt coordinator Benito Stefanelli. Marco began his career in 1967, at the age of 12 as child actor in western movies and thanks to his father's guidance he gradually learned the trade of a stuntman.

Marco worked as a stuntman in numerous films during his career, but his specialty has always been horses, a passion and tradition passed on to him by his father.

Is currently still in business working as stunt performer, stunt coordinator, horse master and actor. He lives in Sacrofano near Rome in the historical Stefanelli’s stable.
