Credits for L'italia in pigiama pic by vecchiaguardia

Also in Una moglie americana (1965):

Ang again in Il maestro di Vigevano (1963):

Still, I'm not able to find this Casolari in both Cara sposa and Cattivi pensieri, where is also credited, but I think that his credited role as the Maresciallo in the first movie can rule out the chance that he could be the man we're looking for.
