Easily recognisable from his short and stocky build, bald head and beard, Spartaco Nale's earliest known film appearance was in Visconti's Senso (1954), after which there is a 3 year gap before his next found credit. From 1957-1962 he worked steadily in peplum and historical features, including a number of credited supporting roles in high profile productions, after which he seems to have vanished completely.

A couple of oddities!
There are 2 films found in some filmographies online that date from many years after Nale's career seemingly ended.
- Catacombs (1988) contains a credit for a "Sparco Nale" as Present-day monk. None of the monks who are of an appropriate age look anything like Spartaco, even allowing for 25 years of aging, so I would say certainly that this is not him.
- Ricky & Barabba (1992) ANICA and IMDb credit Spartaco with no role given. I have not been able to find a copy of this one to check, but I would say his appearance would be unlikely.
