n32 is the fat man with brown hair
viewtopic.php?f=58&t=200&p=29948&hilit= ... air#p29948

The woman in n8 is probably a generica, she plays the wife of Antonio Pane in Ecce Bombo (1978)
Rita Scipioni is credited also in Il ginecologo della mutua do you think the woman at minute 22 in the link could be her ? (i just gave a very quick look to the movie)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TjAl-qD-tzg

Angela Pintus is credited as neighboor in I ragazzi di celluloide, seconda puntata (TV)
which is easy to be found so we can check

Vittorio Campanella is very possible a generico infact he is credited as capogruppo in Cattivi pensieri (1976)
He also have a credited role in the rare Triangolo rosso episode le due verità and is credited also in Ruba al prossimo tuo (a problematic movie because not all the credited actors appear, but we can still check and see if we found the same man in both movies)

Thank you :thumbup: The actress playing the secretary nurse of Montagnani seems to have darker eyes and a mole at the beginning of the neck (that n. 08 doesn't have). Let's hope to discover Pintus and Campanella

Hi Mauro, I didn't mean Paola Senatore who doesn't appear in the scene you indicated but the other actress who could be Isabella Biagini. Now I understand that you were referring to the actress who plays Stefania Spugnini's mother. I'd love to know your opinion. Thank you.
