Nazzareno Zamperla

Nazzareno Zamperla in Sette contro tutti (1965)

Nazzareno Zamperla was a stuntman, actor and Master of Arms, active in Italian films from the early 50's, working steadily for the next 50 years until 2003. For awhile, in the mid-late 60's, he scored some larger, credited acting roles, but he was back in uncredited stunt roles from the start of the 70's. Later he worked more often behind the scenes as a stunt coordinator or weapons master.

He was born in Treviso, Italy on April 25th 1937 and died in Rome on March 19th 2020, aged 82. He came from a well known circus family and was the brother of stuntman Rinaldo Zamperla. His sons, Mirco and David, followed their father into the business. (these details found on all available sources)

I have started his filmography only with titles found by myself, so there are still quite a few to be added, particularly westerns, films from later in his career and titles where he has production credits.

Capitan Fantasma (1953) as Pirate. Nazzareno's earliest known role, when he was just 16 years old. He reportedly also body-doubled for lead actor Frank Latimore.

Il diavolo nero (1957) as One of Osvaldo's men. My notes say he should also play a second role, with a moustache, as One of Lorenzo's guards, but I'll need to search harder to find that one.
