Yes, Ugo has a credited role in the fotoromanzo "Anime nella bufera" (1949) that I posted some scans from, but I've now found out that Ugo's involvement in fotoromanzi began even earlier, and it was in a crew capacity!

He is credited as aiuto produzione on the fotoromanzo "Perdutamente tua", written by Damiano Damiani(!) and published in the magazine Bolero Film from N. 54 (30 May 1948) to N. 74 (17 October 1948)

Of course, we already know that some of our generici also had some productions jobs (Luciano Foti for example), but it's very interesting to see the same thing happening in fotoromanzi.

But how can I be 100% sure that this Ugo Mari is the same as the actor Ugo Mari, you might be wondering. Well, I'm sure because Ugo also has a little uncredited acting role in this fotoromanzo. Or actually, he has two roles!

First, he appears as the father-in-law of Enzo Fiermonte
Perdutamente Tua - Ugo Mari2.jpg
It's a very small role - Ugo is only seen in three frames

Then a little later he plays a policeman, but now with a moustache
Perdutamente Tua - Ugo Mari3.jpg
This, too, was a very little role - only three frames

I think it's quite possible that Ugo was a production assistant etc on other fotoromanzi from this period too, but unfortunately, such production roles are usually not credited. Usually, only writers, directors and photographers (and sometimes costume designers and make-up artists) are credited.
