Unidentified credited actors
I would expect the 2 child actors playing Scipione's children should be credited and also Scipione's 4th servant since the other 3 are. Since you have Alegny and Morris credited in background roles then those remaining could really be playing anybody.
  • Bernard Luis Rigal - He has no other known credits
  • Gudrun Kiess (Kiess Gudrun Mardou) - She was reportedly in Roma and did some pornographic fotoromanzi, so may be familiar to some people here, and was involved with arms smuggling several years later, but there were no images online. I think we can safely say she isn't the child actress.
  • Brizio Montinaro - credited with c.s.c., so may not appear, but I don't know him so maybe someone else can spot him
  • Maria Adele Bigotti - She has no other known credits. By process of deduction I would guess at her being the child actress.
  • Alessandro Coppola - He has no other known credits
  • Karl Cik - He has one other credit, which I checked without success. From his positioning in the credits I would guess at him being the 4th servant.

In pic 18 we have Ugo Ballester on the right with a wig.

The older man in pic 50 is very important for me, he infact is Giuseppe Righi a very famous fotoromanzo actor, one of the busiest in the 1960's-early 1970's, but i have problems founding him in movies, this is actually his 2nd movie role i found for him, so we only need a third one and he will have his topic too !

I think the older man in 85 is the Elegant old party guest

In pic 91 even if out of focus im quite sure we have Osvaldo Peccioli.

Pic 82 - I didn't post any more as it's impossible to get any shots where the faces are clearer
