And finally the topic for another generico who did appear everywhere from the 1970's until the 1990's.
He was also in some fotoromanzi, and was finally identified by Johan who found out his name in the fotoromanzo Femmina n.10 (1974)

Yes, I did find him in a fotoromanzo! This is our man in Femmina N. 10: "I sogni cominciano all'alba" (published October 1974)
Femmina 10 - Franco Ricci1.jpg
Femmina 10 - Franco Ricci2.jpg

He plays the count Bruni and he is credited, too
Femmina 10 - Franco Ricci3.jpg

So it looks like our man is named Franco Ricci! However, I don't think he's the same as the actor named Franco Ricci on the IMDb. Also, there could be a mistake with his name, because in the same cast list we have Luciano Zanussi credited as Ettore Zanussi (and in Femmina N. 11 he is credited as Franco Zanussi)! I don't know any more. I don't have any other fotoromanzi where Franco Ricci is credited...

And now I have found him too! He's in the audience during the first trial in Il vero e il falso (1972)
Vero Falso - Franco Ricci.jpg

I've changed the first post with the filmography a little by removing the main picture and replacing it with a really good close-up of Franco from Mannaja (1977).

The original main picture was from Il portiere di notte (1974) so I'm now posting the pic of that role here instead
