Carlo Rizzo was born in Trieste, Italy on April 30, 1907. As a young man he devoted himself to the theater, proving himself he soon had leading performances, in which he performed exceptionally alongside Erminio Macario, by which led to his film debuted in “Imputato, alzatevi!” by Mario Mattioli (1939). Later he worked in other famous stage companies along with such successful actors as Charles Dapporto and Wanda Osiris and appeared in numerous films, mostly light-comedies. In 1960, with his brother Alfredo [1902-1991], he formed his own theater company, which unfortunately did not last long. He was married to the ballet dancer Rosita Pinkel.
