Giorni di sangue (1968) seen on the fotobusta (thanks to Carlos for finding it). Role and credit status are uncertain.

Check-up érotique (1976) as "The medicine man".

This obscure porno film made for the foreign market has Pietro participating in a long, unsimulated XXX scene! A woman who is feeling bad calls the doctor to have some medicine delivered, but what shows up at her door is actually Pietro, who introduces himself simply as "the medicine man" and who uses a rather untraditional method to make her feel better :tears_smile:

The cast list is made up entirely of fake names, but it's extremely likely that one of the names Raoul Colombo, Lou Belford, Bobby Krivit and Sam Silver must refer to Pietro. Impossible to say which one, though...

Una cavalla tutta nuda (1972) credited, as Torello.

Pietro has only a very minor role here, and for whatever reason, he is almost constantly shot either from a distance or in such a way that you can't really get a good look at his face.

Martin Scorsese's Gangs of New York (2002) as Member of Priest's gang

Unfortunately, the only frontal shots of Pietro are from a distance and you don't see him too well. During the actual battle sequence, he's shot only from behind, but still recognizable from his hairstyle, massive build and what little we do see of his face.

Despite getting killed by Daniel Day-Lewis, Pietro can be seen alive and fighting again shortly afterwards :D
