Veriano Ginesi in Satiricosissimo (1970)
Satiricosissimo - Veriano Ginesi.jpg

Veriano Ginesi is one of the most recognizable generici in the history of Italian cinema due to his big, hulking build and bald head. Active since the 1940s, he initially appeared in numerous peplum and swashbuckler films - often playing torturers, executioners, pirates etc. His career, however, continued until the end of the 1970s and includes appearances in pretty much every genre of Italian cinema, and also several films for Fellini. He also appeared in some fotoromanzi. He's very similar in appearance to another generico, Amerigo Santarelli.

Two new roles for Veriano ! First the credited one in Cuore di cane (1976) very tiny, he hardly speaks two words as the cook

And then in the middle of this crowd in Il mio amico benito (1962), you can see him on the right, and in the second photo he is at the left of Ciccio Ingrassia as they wait for Mussolini

And yet another Fellini role in Fellini Satyricon (1969) Man at the feast
Veriano Ginesi - Fellini Satyricon.jpg

In Cine Illustrato N. 36 (published 7 September 1952), there's an article about the film Serenata amara (1952) and a few pictures from the film, including this one. I wasn't able to get a good screenshot of him from that scuzzy-looking old (YouTube) print so I think that picture from Cine Illustrato will do nicely as Mario's cornerman.
Veriano Ginesi - Serenata amara.jpg

Anyway, Veriano plays almost the exact same role in Superargo contro Diabolikus (1966), but this time in the wrestling ring
Veriano Ginesi - Superargo contro Diabolikus.jpg

And here he's a prison guard in Maciste contro i Mongoli (1963)
Veriano Ginesi - Maciste contro i Mongoli.jpg

And as one of the sinful people in La Bibbia (1966)
