Gaetano Quartararo was an actor active in Italian films and fotoromanzi from at least the start of the 50's until the end of the 70's. He is one of those borderline cases who could be considered a bit part actor or a generico, but since he had a number of credited speaking roles in the late 60's I have opted for the former.
His earliest known film role was in 1950, after which there is currently a 12-year gap until his next roles in 1962, so presumably there must be some roles to be found for the intervening years. He remained very busy for the remainder of the 60's, including a couple of production credits. His last known film role currently dates from 1973, but since he is known to have been appearing in fotoromanzi until the end of the decade there may well be more later film roles to be uncovered too.
No biographical details are currently known, however there is a Manuela Quartararo credited as script supervisor on the 2 films where he has production credits, who must presumably (given the unusual surname) be somehow related.

Titles to check!
- Letto di sabbia (1962) ANICA
- Una forca per un bastardo (1968) This is Manuela Quartararo's 3rd credit as script supervisor. Since he appears in the other 2 it could be possible he appears here too.
As always there are some titles where he is credited somewhere online, but does not seem to appear.
- Tormento (1950) credited by ANICA with no role. There are no actors who resemble his look in his other 1950 role
- Omicron (1963) ANICA and IMDb both credit him with playing the role of Midollo, but he is not credited and as far as I could find does not appear.
