Riccardo Pizzuti is a stuntman and actor active in Italian films from the start of the 60's and still working as recently as last year (2019).

Riccardo was born on April 28th 1934 in Rome, Italy. (IMDb and Wikipedia both say May, but he has corrected this via his Facebook page).

He worked regularly in peplum films for the first half of the 60's, mostly in background stunt roles. With the arrival of spaghetti westerns and poliziotteschi he became a ubiquitous presence scoring a number of larger, credited, featured stunt roles, notably in the films of Bud Spencer and Terence Hill, as the ringleader of gangs or instigator of barroom brawls.

Riccardo is an active presence on Facebook, where he regularly posts photos and news and where he currently has around 26,000 followers! You can visit his Facebook page here.

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.

  • Giarrettiera Colt (1968) IMDb
No Riccardo!
Titles where Riccardo is credited somewhere online, but does not appear. There always has to be one!
  • Joko invoca Dio... e muori (1968) IMDb as Paco, Mendoza's henchman. I couldn't find Riccardo nor characters called Paco or Mendoza.
