The only unidentified role of any importance is the actor on the left here. Might he be the unidentified Valerio Tordi?
uk28a.jpg

Is this maybe Rinaldo Zamperla?
uk68a.jpg

and I'm undecided if this can be our "Balding Black Guy"

Yes, for sure! I know him very well from fotoromanzi.

I would say yes, though I'm no expert on him.

Pic 10: on the far left is probably Franz Colangelo. He looks strange here (too slim) but I think this is another case of a print that is squished at the edges.

Pic 11: On the far left is maybe the 'Fat man with squared head', though again he looks strange (too slim). Next to him is Mario Pascucci.

Pic 15: Girl on the right is maybe a very young Carla Romanelli...?

Pic 19: The woman on the far left could be Anna Manduchi. Not used to seeing her with hair like that, but I think it could be her.

Pic 33: Maybe Angela Palmieri but not sure.

Pic 36: On the far left is Quinto Marziali.

Pic 37: Quinto Marziali again (second from the right) in a different costume.

Pic 44: A bit unclear, but on the far right I believe we have Nando Sarlo.

I've attempted to get the potential Colangelo and "Fat Man with Squared Head" a little more in proportion. I agree it's probably Colangelo. I'm not very familiar with "Fat Man".
