Ferruccio Fregonese was very active in the 1960s and 70s but I've traced his career back all the way to 1949 when he appears to have enjoyed a certain success as a fotoromanzo actor under the pseudonyms Ferruccio Murer and Ferruccio Mürer.

The earliest fotoromanzo I've found him in is "Il bacio dell'aurora" (published in Sogno from April to September 1949)

Bacio Dell'Aurora - Credits.jpg

Another notable appearance is in the famous trilogy of Lalla Acquaviva, which is composed of 3 fotoromanzi: "Dormire e non sognare", "Lalla che torna" and "Il velo sulla fronte" - all based on the novels by Liala, and published consecutively in Sogno from October 1949 to June 1950.

Here are pics of the credits and of Ferruccio (with a toupee) in the first part of the trilogy, "Dormire e non sognare"

And then comes Ferruccio's biggest success: a very important role in the fotoromanzo "La maschera e il cuore" (published in Sogno from November 1950 to March 1951).

It's such a substantial role that he even got to grace the cover of Sogno together with the story's leading lady, Giuliana Gardini!

And here in a romantic scene with Giuliana Gardini, who had previously played his daughter is "Il bacio dell'aurora" (1949)!

Unfortunately, we have yet to dig up any film roles with Ferruccio from the 1950s, but we've discovered plenty of 1960s roles.
