Faux Fornari

"Faux Fornari", in the fotoromanzo Killing n. 59
This tall, slim and handsome generico with large, characteristic nose was active in Italian cinema from at least the mid 1950s and until the late 1960s.

He was appeared frequently in the Killing fotoromanzi published during 1966-69, which is how first became aware of him. He played several large roles in this series, but unfortunately, the actors were never credited in these fotoromanzi.

When I was trying to identify him some years ago, it was suggested that he is Vito Fornari, who also appeared regularly in the Killing fotoromanzi, but as it eventually turned out, they are actually two different people, and hence I have nicknamed our man "Faux Fornari". Hopefully, we'll soon be able to substitute it with his real name!
