Very good news: I've found his name!

In the book Fellini's faces there is almost the same shot from the movie Roma (1972)
and according to this book our generico is Augusto Brenna.

So finally we know his name; I'm very happy!

Johan Melle: Absolutely fantastic news! And it makes perfect sense since he was credited as "August Bren" in Genius N. 3!

It's been a long time since I've discovered Augusto in any films but here he is in James Tont operazione D.U.E. (1966) at the congress of secret agents:

Augusto as one of Gia Sandri's suitors in La sfida dei giganti (1965):

And Augusto's filmography continues to grow. Now spotted as an audience member at the gladiator fight in I due gladiatori (1964):

Here's Augusto's nice little role in the 'fotoromanzo nero' Genius N. 3: "Una bara per Sam" (April 1966)
Genius 3 - August Bren1.jpg
Genius 3 - August Bren2.jpg

The Genius fotoromanzi usually have cast lists but they tend to 'Americanize' the names of the actors, and so Augusto is credited here as August Bren
Genius 3 Credits.jpg

And here's Augusto at the casino in Kriminal (1966)

Kriminal - Augusto Brenna2.jpg

Also seen very briefly (on the right) as a spectator in Assassinio made in Italy (1963)

And as a party guest in the TV series FBI - Francesco Bertolazzi Investigatore (1970) - episode 5: "Labbra serrate"
