Ravaioli, Isarco

Isarco Ravaioli, in Cineguida 1968-69
Isarco Ravaioli was born as Isacco Ravaioli on March 3rd 1935 in Ravenna, Italy. He originally worked as a primary school teacher in Ravenna, but due to his passion for acting, he relocated to Rome to become an actor. He attended the school of stage director Pietro Scharoff and earned a few small acting parts in films before enrolling at the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia, graduating in 1957.[1]

He then worked regularly through the 60's, mostly in small parts but occasionally scoring some larger roles. Most of his prominent roles were for director Renato Polselli, who directed him in L'amante del vampiro (1960), La verità secondo Satana (1972), Rivelazioni di uno psichiatra sul mondo perverso del sesso (1973), Quando l'amore è oscenità (1973) and Mania (1974). Several of Polselli's films were shot at Isarco's private villa (including some that Isarco himself didn't appear in) so the two were probably personal friends.

Through the 70's until the mid-80's he worked more sporadically, when it would appear that he retired from acting.

Multiple websites repeat the unconfirmed details that he died in Rome on February 15th 2004.

I have started his filmography only with roles found by myself, so there are plenty more to be added.

Caravan petrol (1960) Credited but not found. IMDb says he should play "Fazil's soldier" however I failed to find him, or for that matter Fazil, so I think this is probably a credit only.

Maciste nella valle dei Re (1960) as Merchant, friend of Senneka (Nino Musco).

He has a reasonably sized role, but is oddly uncredited, barely speaks and, as far as I could tell, didn't have a character name.

Un giorno da leoni (1961) credited but not found, this is almost certainly a credit only.

Arrivano i titani (1962) Credited in the Italian version only, but not found. I've been through this film head-shotting and Isarco is nowhere to be found, so another credit only.
