Capanna, Pietro

Pietro Capanna in Per pochi dollari ancora (1966)

Pietro Capanna was a small-part actor, often in roles requiring some stuntwork, active in Italian films throughout the 1950's and 60's.

No biographical details are currently known.

Pietro was someone who I had always assumed had a much larger filmography due to most of his largest roles having been in peplums, but he only has 16 titles listed on his IMDb page (and one of those he does not appear in). I have found a few undocumented roles for Pietro, so I expect that more will follow.

I have found no evidence to suggest that he is related to the other Capanna stuntmen, Otello and Omero.

Titles to check
  • Ben-Hur (1959) I've been told he should appear, but I have never found Pietro in this film, however I don't rule out that I may have missed him if he appears in a small role.
No Pietro!
Titles where Pietro is credited with appearing somewhere online, but cannot be found. There always has to be one!
  • Lucrèce Borgia (1953) IMDb with no role. I have previously head-shotted this film and Pietro is nowhere to be seen.
