Renato Lupi was born on November 19, 1930 in Rome, Italy. After studying at the University of East Naples, he began courses in drama school and had the ability to begin almost immediately as an actor both in theater and film. In films he became a reliable character actor, but his career is fragmented and rather discontinuous so he becomes just another anonymous face on the screen. Renato also became active in the field of radio and dubbing, as well as playing in a few television series such as “Graziella” (1961), directed by Mario Ferrero, and “Vita di Cavour” (1967) directed by Schivazappa in an episode of the series “Le inchieste del commissario Maigret” (1968) directed by Mario Landi. Lupi appeared in one Euro-western “A Man Called Apocalypse Joe” (1970) as Brother Antonio. Today we celebrate Renato Lupi’s 80th birthday.
