Altamura, Tullio

Tullio's acting career seemed to go from being quite prolific to barely existent at the start of the 1970's. While searching for him on the Radiocorriere TV guide website I found something that could provide an explanation why.

There is a director of short television documentary features named Tullio Altamura who was active and quite prolific from 1969 and throughout the 1970's. Given that his name is rather unusual and considering the timing coinciding with the rapid decline of his acting career, I feel sure that this must be the same person. It is quite possible that he continued directing beyond the episodes listed, since Radiocorriere's listings became a lot less complete after the 70's and directors for such small shows would no longer have been credited. Unfortunately I was unable to find any other references online to Tullio Altamura, the director, but a selection of his programmes can be found on Rai Teche (thanks to Johan for providing the link).

Here are a selection of the credits I found for him. The years are a little uncertain since I only found listings for repeat broadcasts for some of the programmes. The length of these shows appears to have been between 15 to 30 minutes.
