Quinto Gambi
Quinto Gambi (Rome, November 9, 1939 ‒ November 14, 2017) was a stuntman and occasionally actor. He was best known for been the trusty stunt double of the actor Tomas Milian from the 60s, till the 80s.

Gambi was born in the Shangai District in Rome, his father was Italo Gambi, a fishmonger with a past as a partisian during the war, before and after working in the cinema, Quinto did the same job of his father.

Gambi and Tomas Milian were very close friends, they met for the first time in the middle of the 1960s at the Piper Club, a famous disco club in Rome, both were immediately impressed by their great similarity, from that meeting Milian brought Gambi in some of his movie sets as his stunt double.

According to Tomas Milian words, his legendary movie character Nico Giraldi was based on his friend Quinto.

Credited as Micio in the two parts tv mini-serie La gabbia (1977), probably Gambi's biggest role, also for the first time he acted with his real voice!
