Amedeo Trilli

Amedeo Trilli in Il ferroviere (1956)
vlcsnap-2020-01-25-16h09m06s164.jpg

Amedeo Trilli was a robust character actor who worked steadily in Italian films from the start of the sound era through until his death in 1971. While he played a fair number of scene-stealing credited character roles and even a one-off lead role, he was just as likely, throughout the length of his career, to be found in uncredited bit parts. Sadly he seems to be largely unknown or forgotten these days.

His unconfirmed biographical details (found on IMDb, Tototruffa, CIDb and various Wikipedia pages) are that he was born on July 9th 1906 in Ronciglione, Italy and died on November 30th 1971 in Rome. He was occasionally billed under the name Amedeo Novelli, so it’s possible this could be his real name. No other information is currently known.

I have turned up at least 10 previously undocumented appearances by Trilli, so I am certain there must be more to be found.

  • Teseo contro il minotauro (1960) Listed by IMDb as Ctesiphorus
  • La meravigliosa Angelica (Merveilleuse Angélique) (1965) Listed by ANICA with no role given.
