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.

Pietro was born on November 21st 1926 and died on October 14th 1993, at the age of 66. He was the brother of Lanfranco Ceccarelli and the son of Stefano Ceccarelli. This information comes from Stefania Giolitti, granddaughter of Pietro, from my Peplum Paradise group on Facebook. (Note that most websites give an incorrect date of birth for Pietro and list him as being still living).

Some additional information from the Lazio Wiki website tells us that in the late 40's, before following his father into acting, Pietro was a professional footballer / goalkeeper. It also informs us that once he retired from acting he coached football youth teams.

Additional credits
  • Il trucido e lo sbirro (1976) .... Actor in film shown in prison (re-used footage)
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)
  • Raw Wind in Eden (1958) On-set images indicate that Pietro was somehow involved in this production, though it is uncertain if he actually appears
  • La resa dei conti (1966) IMDb, as Jack (checked by Rudy, maybe does not appear)
  • La vergine di Samoa (1966) IMDb, as Bruno
  • Giallo napoletano (1979) ANICA, as "another man in mental hospital"
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 played by Pietro's father, Stefano.
  • 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 Stefano.
  • 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.

Camping (1958) as Villager.

Initially I was uncertain about this one since popular opinion was that it was not Pietro, however now that we have a number of images of Pietro with hair for comparison, I don't think there can be any question that it is him.

Here we have a publicity shot with Pietro and our Barbarian Torturer, who has been mistaken for Pietro on a number occasions (see below the filmography) and there is a strong possibility could be his real-life father!
