Vincenzo Maggio in Lo chiamavano Bulldozer (1978)
vlcsnap-2020-04-04-10h20m00s234 copy.jpg

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.

More Maggio!
There are still a few movies where Vincenzo is credited by various online sources, so if anybody has images of him in the films below you know what to do. Be aware that with any of these roles it is quite possible that it could be the older Enzo Maggio who appears. ANICA lists a number of titles for "Enzo Maggio" that look like they could probably be Vincenzo - I have included the more obvious-looking ones and left the rest.
  • I clowns (1970) ANICA as Clown Italiano. I have searched for him without any luck, but if he is hidden under clown make-up then he may be pretty impossible to find. There is also a credit for "Maggio" which someone may have mistaken to be Vincenzo, but almost certainly refers to Dante Maggio, who definitely does appear.
  • Il furto è l'anima del commercio?!... (1971) ANICA
  • Piedone lo sbirro (1973) IMDb as Gennarino
  • Di Tresette ce n'è uno, tutti gli altri son nessuno (1974) IMDb as Frank Faina
  • Noi non siamo angeli (1975) IMDb as Shark henchman
  • Piedone a Hong Kong (1975) IMDb
  • El macho (1977) IMDb as Sam
  • Le grand escogriffe [Il genio] (1977) ANICA
  • La soldatessa alle grandi manovre (1978) IMDb
  • Pari e dispari (1978) IMDb as Tappo
  • Piedone l'africano (1978) IMDb as Bus hooligan
  • Primo amore (1978) ANICA as Trottolino
  • Uno sceriffo extraterrestre... poco extra e molto terrestre (1979) IMDb as Airman
  • Chissà perché... capitano tutte a me (1980) IMDb as Cop
  • Piedone d'Egitto (1980) IMDb as Coppola's pal
  • Big Man: La fanciulla che ride (1988) IMDb as Vasco's thug
  • Big Man: Polizza droga (1988) IMDb as Thug
  • The Last Temptation of Christ (1988) IMDb as "Stunts", maybe a stunt credit?
  • La storia spezzata (1990) TV mini-series, episodes 1 & 2. IMDb as "acrobti", maybe credited
  • Year of the Gun (1991) IMDb as "Stunts", maybe a stunt credit?

Vincenzo has vanished!
Titles where Vincenzo is credited somewhere online, but neither he nor the older Enzo appear
  • Fai in fretta ad uccidermi... ho freddo! (1967) "Vincenzo" is credited, but I could not find either Vincenzo or Enzo.
  • Zorro (1975) Listed on IMDb as "Townsman". There is an actor who bears some resemblance to Vincenzo, but it is not him.
The Other One!
Films where "Vincenzo Maggio" is credited, or listed somewhere online, but it is actually the older Enzo who appears
  • I due vigili (1967)
  • I due deputati (1968) ANICA
  • Rimase uno solo e fu la morte per tutti (1971)
  • Gli altri racconti di Canterbury (1972)
  • Posate le pistole, reverendo (1972) ANICA
  • Trinità e Sartana figli di... (1972) ANICA

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.
