Cast credited by image - First panel

The Italian version of this film does not include any actor credits as such, but does show images of 79 actors at the end of the film. The first 40 actors shown in the first panel are listed below in the order of the credit images (going left-to-right), which seem to be in totally random order, as seems to be who is included and who is not.

Cast credited on the Italian poster

In addition to the 79 actors credited with images above, the Italian poster for the film includes many more names, however a number of these actors do not actually appear in the film. I have listed the additional actors, omitting those already posted, in the order they appear on the poster (left to right).

English credits
You also have the minimal and quite ludicrous English credits, which only lists 12 actors, of whom 7 do not appear! These credits even manage to add an extra non-appearing actor not included on the Italian poster.

I'd say Enio Girolami is the guy in 55, and Renato Rascel waving in 42.
Not sure about Sanipoli in 47.

Thank you, Girolami added. Paris/Ricci corrected.

47 looks nothing like Sanipoli in my opinion.

Rascel seems possible but I'm not certain, so will await further opinions.
