Vincenzo Maggio in Lo chiamavano Bulldozer (1978)

Vincenzo Maggio was a stuntman and actor active in Italian films from at least the early 50's to the early 90's.

Much confusion is caused by there being 2 actors who were credited regularly both as Enzo and Vincenzo Maggio, both of whom were active concurrently from the 50's until the 70's. It is my personal belief, though with no solid evidence to support it, that Vincenzo was the son of the older Enzo (see image below). I see a strong physical resemblance and he is referred to by some sources as Enzo Jr., besides which if they were not related it is unlikely he would have been allowed to act under the same name as the more established older actor. Hopefully some evidence will present itself sooner or later to clarify matters. In the meantime this confusion results in all filmographies you find for either actor (except ours obviously) being incorrect and mixing up the credits for both actors.

I have started his filmography only with roles found by myself, so there are plenty more to be added, particularly westerns and films from later in his career.

La città si difende (1951) credited as Enzo Maggio, as Alberto Tosi.

I came across this role completely by accident while searching for Amedeo Trilli. Every online source credits this role to the older Enzo, except, oddly, IMDb, where it is the sole credit for "Enzo Maggio Jr.". Coming some 8 years before any other known roles, the young Vincenzo has a large and dramatic role here and it's surprising he didn't move into more roles of substance as a result. On the strength of this I think it's quite possible that some other 50's roles ascribed to the older Enzo could also turn out to be Vincenzo.
