Vladimiro Picciafuochi in Messalina, Venere imperatrice (1960)

Robust actor familiar from numerous peplums, hopefully some appearances in films from other genres will follow. He has a distinctive dimple in his chin to aide identification.

La scimitarra del Saraceno (1959) as Pirate.

Like Veriano, he's seen more clearly in the publicity shot than he is in the film.
