Arnaldo Dell'Acqua is a stuntman, actor and stunt coordinator active in Italian films from the early 1960's until the early 2000's.

Born on May 14th 1938 in Campobasso, Italy, he is the non-identical twin brother of Alberto 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, Arnaldo began his film career in the early 60's with appearances in a few peplums. He then worked steadily in stunt roles and behind the scenes as a stunt coordinator for the next 40 years. Unlike brother Alberto, the majority of Arnaldo's film appearances were uncredited bit parts.

Gli invincibili tre (1964) credited, as Pico.

Like brothers Alberto and Roberto, Arnaldo kick-started his career with a substantial peplum role in 1964. Along with Alan Steel and Vincenzo Maggio he is one of the invincible three of the title.

Ursus, il terrore dei kirghisi (1964) as Juggler (along with brother Alberto) and One of Ilo's men, which I assume are the same role.

Agente 077 dall'oriente con furore (1965) as Nightclub dancer-brawler.

It looks like there's probably also brother Alberto beside him in the final image, though I didn't spot him during the preceding fight.
