Mirko Bajocchi in "Fantozzi" (1975)

Mirko Bajocchi (alias Mirko Baiocchi - in the Italian language of those years, the letter "j" and "i" were as it were "interchangeable”) was a musician (accordionist) and an extra. He was present in dozens of films from the early forties, till seventies, almost always playing a musical instrument, often a piano, a bass or a guitar.

Listed exceptionally at the end of the first Fantozzi (1975) as Baiocchi, he plays the famous role of Maestro Canello, the one who, to take a double pay, puts forward the hands of the watch at the Fantozzi's party, to be punctual elsewhere.

Over the years this character become very famous, so much to become an object of worship and reinterpretations in the form of tribute designs, which inevitably sprout every Saint Sylvester's Day on the italians social networks.

He lived in Rome, in Via Enea, 14.[1]
