I know Ugo! I actually have a very old fotoromanzo where he is credited! "Anime nella bufera", published in the magazine Tipo from N. 37 (18 June 1949) to N. 50 (17 September 1949)!

Here are a couple of new and really nice roles for Ugo!

He's a party guest playing strip poker in Totò, Peppino e... la dolce vita (1961) :D
Toto Peppino Dolce Vita - Ugo Mari.jpg

Cool little speaking role for him in Rita, la figlia americana (1965) as an audience member who complains during the concert conducted by Totò and then finally leaves in anger
Rita Figlia Americana - Mari1.jpg
Rita Figlia Americana - Mari2.jpg
Rita Figlia Americana - Mari3.jpg

In spite of this, he's back as an audience member at another Totò concert, but looks no more impressed this time :p
Rita Figlia Americana - Mari4.jpg

Ugo can also be spotted as a patient in the waiting room in Il medico della mutua (1968)

And in Lady Barbara (1970) he's an old man playing scopa with Carlo Delle Piane - another brief speaking role

Cameriera bella presenza offresi... (1951) as an admirer of Vittorio De Sica who congratulates him after his performance

And a brief but very cool speaking role in Satyricon (1969) - the Polidoro version - as a rich, old homosexual named Pistone

Yes, Ugo has a credited role in the fotoromanzo "Anime nella bufera" (1949) that I posted some scans from, but I've now found out that Ugo's involvement in fotoromanzi began even earlier, and it was in a crew capacity!

He is credited as aiuto produzione on the fotoromanzo "Perdutamente tua", written by Damiano Damiani(!) and published in the magazine Bolero Film from N. 54 (30 May 1948) to N. 74 (17 October 1948)

Of course, we already know that some of our generici also had some productions jobs (Luciano Foti for example), but it's very interesting to see the same thing happening in fotoromanzi.

But how can I be 100% sure that this Ugo Mari is the same as the actor Ugo Mari, you might be wondering. Well, I'm sure because Ugo also has a little uncredited acting role in this fotoromanzo. Or actually, he has two roles!

First, he appears as the father-in-law of Enzo Fiermonte

It's a very small role - Ugo is only seen in three frames

Then a little later he plays a policeman, but now with a moustache

This, too, was a very little role - only three frames

I think it's quite possible that Ugo was a production assistant etc on other fotoromanzi from this period too, but unfortunately, such production roles are usually not credited. Usually, only writers, directors and photographers (and sometimes costume designers and make-up artists) are credited.
