Pietro Ceccarelli

Pietro Ceccarelli in Sette contro tutti (1965)
pietroc3.jpg

Pietro Ceccarelli, or "Puccio" as he was often credited, was an actor and stuntman active in Italian films from the mid-50's through until the late 80's. Instantly recognisable among the ranks of gladiators and cowboys for his tall stature and shaved head.

All the usual online sources (IMDb, CIDb, Wikipedia) give his date of birth as January 26th 1934. Beyond this things get mysterious. Both Fabio Melelli and forum member J. Christoffer Slotte have said that they were informed in interviews with other stuntmen that Pietro is dead, yet there is no evidence anywhere to support this and all internet sites show him to be still living. Another common supposition is that he is the brother of actor and production manager Lanfranco Ceccarelli, but once again there is no positive confirmation of this. Adding further confusion, there is a mysterious presence of "Pietro Ceccarelli" on Facebook, who shares posts, "likes" and occasionally comments "grazie", but who posts no original content and does not reply to messages. General consensus seems to be that this is not actually Pietro and, much as I would like to think that he is silently watching my Facebook posts, I am inclined to agree.

Più Pietro!
There are more titles in which Pietro reportedly appears, so if anyone has shots of him in any of the titles below, you know what to do!
  • Le notti bianche (1957) Wikipedia (maybe mistaken for Lanfranco Ceccarelli)
  • La resa dei conti (1966) IMDb, as Jack (checked by Rudy, maybe does not appear)
  • La vergine di Samoa (1966) IMDb, as Bruno
  • Agente Sigma 3 - Missione Goldwather (1967) ANICA
  • Avere vent'anni (1978) IMDb, as "Elder bald head"
  • Giallo napoletano (1979) ANICA, as "another man in mental hospital"

    There are a further 9 titles I am aware of where Pietro may appear, but which I am unable to include for information copyright reasons
Manca Ceccarelli!
and of course we have the list of titles where Pietro is credited somewhere online but almost certainly does not appear.
  • La strada (1954) - Does not appear. Most websites would have you believe that Pietro made his debut for Fellini, however the role he is credited with playing is actually none other than our own Barbarian Torturer, who could feasibly play Pietro's father, but is way too old to be 20-year old Pietro.
  • Superargo contro Diabolikus (1966) Does not appear. Credited by IMDb as Henchman, searched for by Nick, Rudy and Johan. Maybe once again mistaken for the Barbarian Torturer.
  • I nipoti di Zorro (1968) - Does not appear. Credited by ANICA and elsewhere as playing the hangman, but it is Veriano Ginesi in the role.
  • Ritorno del gladiatore più forte del mondo (1971) - Does not appear. Listed by ANICA and elsewhere, but once again it is Ginesi in the role..
  • In nome del popolo italiano (1971) - Does not appear. Listed on various websites, including ANICA, but for a 3rd time someone has mistaken him for Veriano.

Here we have a publicity shot with Pietro and our Barbarian Torturer, who has been mistaken for Ceccarelli on several occasions (see below the filmography) and who would have been a good fit to play his father!
