Aldo Ralli


Born - 21 October 1935, Pisa, Tuscany, Italy
Died - 6 March 2016

Puggy, beak-nosed, dark-haired Italian comedy actor, almost a comic version of Hollywood's Alexander Knox. Born Aldo Matarazzi, he entered films in the Sixties, although the body of his cinema work came much later: after Rick and John, Conquerors of the West (1967) and Isabella, Duchess of the Demons (1969), he was off screen for a decade. Then: Summer in the Country (1980), Biancaneve & Co (1982), Delitto in Formula 1 (1984), Roba di Ricchi (1986), Il Volpone (1988), Mutande Pazze (1992), Vacanze sulla Neve (1999), Il Divo (2008) and The Great Beauty (2013). He signed off with his portrayal of the spa hotel manager in the award-winning Youth (2015).
