And a little later in another scene too:
Do you agree, Ghibarian?

| This should be him in Genius N. 3: "Una bara per Sam" (April 1966):
He is actually credited too but only under a pseudonym: August Bren.

| Too bad we haven't his name
But at least we can hope he do more fotoromanzi with his real name !
|Posted by: Ghibarian June 03, 2011 01:04 pm|

|I don't know. I'll have to check the DVD to see if there is a better shot of him but I won't be able to that until next week...|
|Posted by: Johan Melle August 19, 2011 08:54 pm|

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!
|Posted by: Johan Melle December 30, 2011 06:08 pm|
|Absolutely fantastic news! And it makes perfect sense since he was credited as "August Bren" in Genius N. 3!|
|Posted by: Ciavazzaro December 31, 2011 01:02 pm|
| Wow that's a wonderful news !!!
A great way to ending to the year,hoping the next we will found a lot of more names of our beloved generici !!!
My compliment ghibarian !!!!!
|Posted by: Emiliano December 31, 2011 02:14 pm|
|I echo the words of Ciavazzaro, Ghibarian is doing a great job. It also has a great intuition.|
|Posted by: Emiliano December 31, 2011 02:37 pm|
| This is the picture from Un uomo, una città (1974):
But honestly, now I'm not sure that he is Augusto. He seems to be younger. The monocle who has remembers me certain Alberto Mariconda, on the "Fellini's faces" N° 321.
|Posted by: Ghibarian December 31, 2011 03:16 pm|
I agree, it's not Augusto in Un uomo, una città.

|Posted by: Johan Melle November 05, 2014 08:20 pm|
|Yes, for sure!|

He is praying before going to sleep, when another monk says to him, "remember you have to die", but he answers "not yet !" and in that moment a statue fells over his head
But don't you worry, because the day after Augusto is safe:
