| Decio Gambini, former 'Isarco Ravaioli lookalike' in the fotoromanzo Le avventure di Ray Kolman N. 34: "Un'orchidea rossa di sangue" (September 1972):
Here is another generico who shows up everywhere. I think he looks a little bit like the well-known actor Isarco Ravaioli so I have nicknamed him 'Isarco Ravaioli lookalike'. Since then, he has been identified as Decio Gambini, a.k.a. Decio Gabin.

| He can be seen very very briefly in the asylum sequence in Giallo napoletano (1979)
And here in the great TV mini series Marco Polo (1982)
And also in another big TV mini series - Verdi (1982)
Here he is a man hiding from the evil soldiers in Rush (1983)

do you think it's him?

|Posted by: Johan Melle June 24, 2011 09:58 pm|
| Yes, I'm quite sure it is him. That's great. Thank you!
And I also forgot that he appears in the TV series FBI - Francesco Bertolazzi investigatore - episode 1: "Sparita il giorno delle nozze" (1970) as a man in the film footage:

| This is one of the men in the opening sequence of Mamma Roma...
What do you think? Just a similarity?
|Posted by: Johan Melle June 26, 2011 01:55 am|
|I don't think it's the same man.|

| La dottoressa ci sta col colonnello (1980) .... Doctor attending the operation
|Posted by: Ghibarian July 04, 2011 05:18 pm|
| I think this could be him..
Quando c'era lui... caro lei! (1978) .... Priest
|Posted by: Johan Melle July 05, 2011 07:15 pm|
| About Quando c'era lui... caro lei! it's a little difficult to see because the picture is small but I think that you are right.
And this, too, should be our man (the second man from the right) as a fingerprint analyzer in Una farfalla con le ali insanguinati (1971)
|Posted by: Johan Melle July 23, 2011 10:24 pm|
| Our man can be seen briefly at the airport in La via della droga (1977)

| La cittÓ gioca d'azzardo (1975)
|Posted by: Ghibarian July 29, 2011 01:07 pm|
| I think that maybe it could be him:
|Posted by: Johan Melle July 29, 2011 02:36 pm|
|Yeah, that certainly looks like him. Don't know if there are better shots of him in the film though...|
|Posted by: Ghibarian September 21, 2011 01:41 pm|
| I think this should be him:
L'anatra all'arancia (1975) .... Restaurant customer
|Posted by: Johan Melle September 23, 2011 05:08 pm|
| He is a waiter at the party in Roma, l'altra faccia della violenza (1976)
|Posted by: Ghibarian October 05, 2011 02:27 pm|
| It could be probably him as priest in this scene:

| Vediamoci chiaro (1984) .... Male nurse
|Posted by: Johan Melle October 24, 2011 05:15 pm|
| I found our man in another fotoromanzo - more precisely in Le avventure di Ray Kolman N. 29: "Ogni giorno nel tuo ricordo" (March 1972)
He has a fairly large role as a character named "Robin" and - to my great surprise - he is actually credited!!
As you can see, his name is DECIO GABIN. So that's another mystery solved!

| Thanks to vecchiaguardia this is Decio in Amore amaro (1974) with Bertocci and Antonio Marcolin
But i also have a role for Decio as waiter in Razza Selvaggia (1980)
Sadly i can't put a pic on the face, because he have a close-up of a few of seconds without a good zoom, but when you see the movie, he is him.
|Posted by: Ciavazzaro July 30, 2018 12:03 am|
| And i found a second fotoromanzo where Decio is credited !
In a Superflash quite a big role
|Posted by: Johan Melle July 30, 2018 12:14 am|
|Yes, and he is credited as Decio Gambini! I, too, have a fotoromanzo where he is credited as Decio Gambini, so I think maybe this one fotoromanzo where he is credited as Decio Gabin is probably wrong. My suggestion is to change the name to Decio Gambini and list Decio Gabin as an alias.|
|Posted by: Ciavazzaro July 30, 2018 12:14 am|
|Why not ! i agree with you.|
|Posted by: Johan Melle July 30, 2018 12:18 am|
|Posted by: Ciavazzaro July 30, 2018 12:23 am|
| And on imdb there are also these more roles
For Carlos he seems to appear in Zanna Bianca as man in saloon and in Testa t'ammazzo, croce... sei morto - Mi chiamano Alleluja as us government official
And in A pugni nudi (1974) as man at church
|Posted by: carlos July 30, 2018 01:50 am|
Zanna Bianca as man in saloon - I think he is in the long coat by the bar
Testa t'ammazzo, croce... sei morto - Mi chiamano Alleluja as us government official - on the right
Mauro this is what I found. As i'm not too familiar with this one, what do you think?
I don't have A pugni nudi. I searched on eMule and a couple mor sites and did not find it, so maybe someone else has it.
|Posted by: Ciavazzaro August 05, 2018 10:07 pm|
| Sorry i haven't read your question til now !
He is him !
Also in the pic there is Osvaldo Peccioli !
One thing in Zanna Bianca can you put a pic of the man who is drinking on the left of Decio, i think he is again Osvaldo but i need to see his face
