Dell'Acqua, Alberto

Alberto Dell'Acqua in 7 donne per i Mac Gregor (1967)
screenshot18.jpg
Alberto Dell'Acqua is an actor, stuntman and stunt coordinator active in Italian films from the early 1960's until the early 2010's.

Born on May 14th 1938 in Campobasso, Italy, he is the non-identical twin brother of Arnaldo and older brother to Roberto, Fernanda and Ottaviano. He is still alive at the time of writing.

Having worked in the circus as a youngster along with his brothers, Alberto began his film career in the early-mid 60's with appearances in a few peplums. When spaghetti westerns came along he graduated to credited supporting roles and in the 70's he even scored a few leading roles. In spite of this he never quite graduated to becoming a star, quite possibly due to his being lumbered with a succession of unlikely pseudonyms such as Cole Kitosch, Albert Nova and Robert Widmark (as I've commented in other topics, how is the public supposed to identify an actor when they don't know what to call him?).

I giganti di Roma (1964) credited in some versions, as Valerius

Like brothers Arnaldo and Roberto, Alberto kick-started his career with a substantial peplum role in 1964. Alberto was 26 here, but due to his boyish looks is playing a character clearly intended to be in his teens.

L'uomo, l'orgoglio, la vendetta (1967) as Remendado.

I believe he should be credited in the Italian version, but wasn't in my English copy.
