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.
