Giovanni Baghino, most often credited as Gianni, was a bit part actor working consistantly in Italian films from the late 1940’s until his death in 1995. His floppy black hair (grey from the mid-70’s onwards) and thick eyebrows should make him easily identifiable. Like Mimmo Poli, who he frequently appeared in films with, Gianni often had small speaking parts, but the great majority of these roles were uncredited.
His unconfirmed biographical details, found on all the usual sources, are that he was born on June 25th 1919 in Carloforte, Sardinia, Italy and died in the same location on April 23rd 1995, aged 75. He was credited on a number of occasions with his surname spelled "Bachino", so there's a possibility that could be his real name.
There will certainly be more titles to be discovered for Gianni.
