Tocci, Bruno

Bruno Tocci in a fotoromanzo publicity shot
Bruno Tocci was a leading actor in fotoromanzi who also had a parallel career as a small-part actor in Italian films. He was active from the start of the 1950's into the 1980's.

He was born on April 22nd[1] or 23rd[2], 1923 in the Testaccio, a district of Rome.

Around 1949 he was 1.80 m. tall, weighed 80 kg., with brown hair and light-blue eyes. He attended a ballet school and he had knowledge of English and French[2].

He made his first fotoromanzo appearance in 1949 and made his film debut the following year. While his film career is fairly patchy and always in small supporting roles, his work in fotoromanzi was far more prolific and varied, with more than 300 appearances in roles of varying sizes, his last coming in 1992.

His fotoromanzi-topilio profile says his final role was "just before his death", from which we can surmise that he must have died around 1993. No other websites give any details of his death (or birth).

He lived in Roma, in via Giovanni Amendola, 24-a[2].

1. The bulk of Bruno's biographical details come from his profile on the fotoromanzi-topilio.it website.
2. "Cineguida 1949" - Dante Lazzaro.

Robin Hood e i pirati (1960) credited in the Italian version, as One of Robin's men in prison.

Typical of Italian continuity, Robin frees his men from prison, then they are never seen again.
