Domenico Ravenna, in of spite appearing in impressive number of films, was credited only in four films:

In the spy film A 008 operazione Sterminio (1965) he is credited under the anglicized name Johnny Ravenna and he plays an engineer who is kidnapped by the bad guys but.

Unfortunately, he only appears very briefly. First when he's kidnapped...
Operazione Sterminio - Ravenna1.jpg

...and then later when Alberto Lupo finds him murdered
Operazione Sterminio - Ravenna2.jpg
Operazione Sterminio - Ravenna3.jpg

And here his credit from the opening titles
Operazione Sterminio - Ravenna4.jpg

Domenico's next credited role is in another spy film Silenzio: si uccide (1967) where he plays the professor - pics by Emiliano
Silenzio Si Uccide - Domenico Ravenna2.jpg
Silenzio Si Uccide - Domenico Ravenna1.jpg

He's also credited in classic giallo Il dolce corpo di Deborah (1968) where he has a very short role as a doctor
Deborah - Domenico Ravenna.jpg
Deborah - Domenico Ravenna2.jpg

And his final credited role is in the horror film La bambola di Satana (1969), where he has a very good role as Mr. Shinton, who becomes the killer's first victim

Domenico also appeared in some fotoromanzi for Lancio. He was usually uncredited but here are 3 fotoromanzi where in which he was credited:

First in Le avventure di Jacques Douglas N. 4: "Love in Portofino - Operazione Sparrow" (January 1966) - scanned from the French edition
Jacques Douglas 4 - Ravenna.jpg

As a KGB man in Le avventure di Jacques Douglas N. 37: "Buongiorno spia" (October 1968)
Jacques Douglas 37 - Ravenna.jpg

And here in Le avventure di Lucky Martin N. 5: "Si muore solo tre volte" (February 1969) - together with Anna Maria Perego
Lucky Martin 5 - Ravenna.jpg

And then a few more fotoromanzo roles - all uncredited:

Darling N. 13: "Ogni notte il tuo volto" (March 1968)
Darling 13 - Domenico Ravenna.jpg

Le avventure di Lucky Martin N. 27: "Telefonata nella notte" (December 1970) - without his usual glasses this time
Lucky Martin 27 - Domenico Ravenna.jpg

Le avventure di Jacques Douglas N. 69: "Il fiore della morte" (June 1971)
Jacques Douglas 69 - Domenico Ravenna.jpg

And finally the biggest fotoromanzo role I have seen for him in Le avventure di Lucky Martin N. 48: "Hanno rapito Bob Carter" (September 1972), for which he'd deserved to be credited

Pretty nice little role for Domenico in the 3-part TV series L'olandese scomparso (1974) as a caretaker who uintentionally surprises and scares the protagonist (Giuseppe Pambieri) in the dark
L'Olandese Scomparso - Domenico Ravenna.jpg

Domenico is also in the bizarre giallo Spasmo (1974) where he appears two times as a priest seen in the 8mm footage.
First he leads the confirmation ceremony
Spasmo - Domenico Ravenna1.jpg

And a little later he leads the funeral
Spasmo - Domenico Ravenna2.jpg

He's a priest again - this time at the hospital - in L'uomo dalla strada fa giustizia (1975)
L'Uomo Dalla Strada - Ravenna.jpg

For his part as an honorable gambler in La città gioca d'azzardo (1975) he switched his usual glasses for a monocle
Citta Gioca - Domenico Ravenna.jpg

Domenico as one of the Megaditta bosses in Fantozzi (1975)

And finally as as Dayle Haddon's majordomo in the sex comedy 40 gradi all'ombra del lenzuolo (1976) - segment "La guardia del corpo"

I do think this is Domenico in an early role from Il comandante (1963)
Il Comandante - Ravenna1.jpg
Il Comandante - Ravenna2.jpg

Here Domenico in the night club scene of L'ora di uccidere (1964)
L'Ora Di Uccidere - Domenico Ravenna.jpg

And in Se permettete parliamo di donne (1964)
Se Permettere - Ravenna.jpg

Domenico in Le dolci signore (1968)
Le Dolci Signore - Ravenna.jpg

Here in La bambolona (1968) with Giuseppe Ravenna, i wonder if they are brothers, not only because the same surname, but also because they are really similar by a pshyical point of view (only Giuseppe is a little fat, but if you look at their faces they are similar)
