Gilberto Galimberti
(pic courtesy of his son Giulio Galimberti)
Gilberto Galimberti was a prolific acrobat, "generico" and master of arms. He was active in Italian films from at least the early 60s until the early 90s.

He was born on February 25th 1933 in the heart of Rome, in the district of Testaccio, and died on June 16th 2017, also in Rome, aged 84. [1]

Former Judoka Italian champion, one time a casting agent from Cinecittà came to look for fit guys right in the gym where he trained and the owner pointed him out for his skill. His first role in the cinema was in a costume film. He started as a "generico" in Cleopatra, than he joined in the famous Musumeci acrobatic team. From an Acrobat he briefly ended up as a Master of arms, founding the Organizzazione Acrobati Cinematografi and from there he continued his career into the 90s, also providing professional advice. [1, 2]

He tended to be very animated while performing stunts, so it is often not too easy to get clear shots of him.

More Galimberti!
There are still a few movies where Gilberto is credited by various online sources, so if anybody has images of him in the films below you know what to do.
  • Cleopatra (1963) Mentioned by his son as being his film debut (filmed in 1961)
  • La feldmarescialla - Rita fugge... lui corre... egli scappa (1967) - IMDb as German paratrooper
  • Fenomenal e il tesoro di Tutankamen (1968) - I'm pretty sure he plays the smuggler who falls overboard in the pre-credit sequence, but it would take a good quality copy to be sure.
  • Lo chiamavano Verità (1972) - IMDb
  • Lo chiamavano Tresette... giocava sempre col morto (1973) - IMDb as Pappalardo brother
  • La missione del mandrillo (1975) - IMDb
Gone gone Gilberto!
There always has to be one.
  • I normanni (1962) - IMDb as Wilfred henchman. This would have been Gilberto's earliest known role - if he appeared!
  • Un bounty killer a Trinità (1972) - IMDb as Outlaw. There's an outlaw that bears some resemblance, but it isn't him. All the outlaws are played by unknown stuntmen.
