Marcolini, Antonio

Post by Ciavazzaro » 29/08/2018, 0:12

Antonio Marcolini portrayed in the book "Fellini's Faces"
Antonio Marcolini - Fellini's faces.jpg

Thanks to the book "Fellini's Faces", finally I was able to discover the identity of this particular generico, who I have found, always uncredited, in many movies.

I found him for the first time in 2008, around the time in which I came here for the first time, then in more recent times I have found this old man everywhere. Finally reading the book, to my biggest surprise I found him, with his name.

So welcome to Antonio Marcolini, an old, bald generico, who has as a characteristic a ring on his hand (maybe he was a nobleman too?). It seems he was never credited anywhere.

And more roles

As Lino Banfi's patient in La liceale, il diavolo e l'acquasanta (1979)
antonioliceale.png
He plays a man who is having an injection on his back side
antonioliceale3.png
But the woman (sister in law of Banfi) who makes the injection doesn't want to see the ass of Antonio, so she does that with her eyes closed
antonioliceale4.png
And in that right moment Banfi put his head, so he received the injection right in his head !!!

And just look who is among the party guest in La Traviata (1968) !!!

No matter if a movie or a sceneggiato
In the 1960's or in the 1980's our Antonio is everywhere !

In the sceneggiato Il furto della Gioconda (1978) a little speaking role with Maria Tedeschi in the same scene
antoniogicodonda.png

Another sceneggiato Vita di Antonio Gramsci (1981)
antoniogramsci.png

The earliest role so far - year 1962! - in the Totò movie Il comandante. He appears at least 3 times in the movie, and if i remember right they have also give him a name (i have to check the movie, again)
antoniocomandante.png

And since i just say he is everywhere, here again Antonio,party guest in The Lion of the Desert (1981)

Antonio is so desperate to appear in many movies, that he even try to enter the car with David Niven in The Statue (1971)
antoniothestatue1.png

And since Antonio makes so many movies, it is normal he fell a little asleep while filming the TV series FBI - Francesco Bertolazzi investigatore - episode 1: "Sparita il giorno delle nozze" (1970) as man at the funeral
antoniofbi.png

Im just amazed by how many roles i can found for Antonio, he is everywhere and in every age !
In just one year we are closer to found 50 roles for him, which is incredible, if we consider for many generici it took 3-4 years to found 50 roles

So im very happy to give a train of new roles i have collected in the last weeks:

Nice close-up in the sceneggiato Processo a Maria Tarnowska (1977) as juror
Processo A Maria - Antonio Marcolini.jpg

All'onorevole piacciono le donne (1972) as ambassador
