Does anybody recognise this actor from La Strada, or know if there is a comprehensive list of actors that appear in the film somewhere since there seem to be for other Fellini films?

I was looking for Pietro Ceccarelli, who is listed as playing a barman or bar keeper on CIDb and IMDb. I couldn't see Ceccarelli, but there is this actor who bears some resemblance to Ceccarelli, but to Ceccarelli at age 40, not 20. He also bears some resemblance to the Barbarian Torturer, but I don't think it's him either

I searched on google books for the book where the full cast list of La dolce vita is but sadly the page with the cast from La strada cannot be see.

Mm personally he reminds me the torturer, but im still not a big expert of him i have to say.

Wondering if this could be Tony Casale in Dieci bianchi uccisi da un piccolo indiano

For me it is 100% barbarian. I recognize it quite well because he appears in one film with Franco and Ciccio that as a child I saw hundreds of times (Satiricosissimo) and so every actor who appears in this film I recognize immediately.

He is not credited in the film, but it is a significant role so if there exists a list of non-credited supporting players from La strada (like exist for other Fellini films) he should be included, and therefore identifiable - and such a list should also tell me if I am wasting my time looking for Ceccarelli

Yeah, definitely the Barbarian torturer in La strada. Same eyes and nose, and also that distinctive line at the bridge of his nose.

I don't know about the priests. The quality is a bit fuzzy and I'm not sure if the aspect ratio is 100% correct...

Browsing around on Google Books, there are various Fellini books, but none of them have a comprehensive cast list for La strada. They only list the same bunch of actors that the IMDb etc do. None of them list Ceccarelli, though, so that is surely a case of someone having confused him with the Barbarian torturer.

Btw, there's a certain Gustavo Giorgi listed as an uncredited cast member in La strada but I can't find any source that lists him with a character name. Any idea who he is? IMDb have only 6 films in his filmography, and at least 4 of them are uncredited.

I don't know him, but I have watched Un americano a Roma several times recently, which is one of the films where he should appear, and am fairly sure that Barbarian Torturer does not appear. The 7 credits he has on Anica are all from 1954-1955, so just a 2 year career
