In 70, we might have Ottorino Polentini, but I'm not sure.

Maybe the man on the left in pic n.38 is a younger Giuseppe Cardone.

Smacchi added.

Can anyone confirm the unsure ID's for Polentini and Cardone?

I agree with Cardone. No idea who Polentini is.

3 and 7: Isn't this one of the Daddis?

80: Surprised no one else has mentioned this, but surely the guy with red hair and beard is Franz Colangelo!

86: Man in the center behind the woman is Vito Fornari.

And the Gianluigi Crescenzi ID seems doubtful to me. Not that I know what Crescenzi actually looks like, but this boy doesn't look like he's any more than around 15 or so, which is surely too young to be a C.S.C. graduate.

Now that we have his topic my inclination is that this is indeed Polentini
