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
