Antonio Spinnato in a portrait from his memorial Facebook profile.

Born in Monrelale, Palermo (Sicily) on June 18, 1951, Antonio "Antonino" Spinnato, moved to Rome when was a child and his passion for cinema became a job. He was a "generico" who between the 1970s and the 2000s was present in dozens and dozens of movies, but apparently credited only in Sogni erotici di Cleopatra (1985).

He passed away in 2009 at the age of 58. Married with Anna Maria Quartararo, he had three children: Francesco, Serena and Valentina. The latter takes care of the Facebook page in his memory.

La soldatessa alle grandi manovre (1978) as Soldier who take off too much blood

Spinnato is the protagonist of a funny gag thanks to his minute body. While Nino Terzo is distracted by a beautiful woman, he takes too much blood and so the poor Spinnato, already thin, faints.

Il bandito dagli occhi azzurri (1980) as Man in the police lineup. A new action comedy movie role, beside my favorite Franco Nero.
