Remembering Fabrizio Moroni

Fabrizio Moroni, also known by the pseudonym Fred Munroe, was born in Florence, Italy on August 6, 1943. Moroni began his acting career at age 17 appearing in the Luchino Visconti film “The Leopard” (1963), his career continued with a long series of films ranging from “Four Flies on Grey Velvet” (1971) directed by Dario Argento to “La prima notte di quiete” directed by Valerio Zurlini, and several musicals such as “Da Nessuno mi può giudicare a Perdono” and blockbusters with Lino Banfi, Alvaro Vitali and Gloria Guida. He also worked in many TV soap operas. Fabrizio was perhaps best known to the general public for his work on television in many dramas by Anton Giulio Majano, like ‘David Copperfield’ (1965). Fabrizio appeared in two Euro-westerns: “Kill or be Killed” (1966) with Robert Mark and “The Longest Hunt” (1968) with Brian Kelly. Fabrizio died on August 6, 2006 in Rome, Italy after a long illness. Today we remember Fabrizio Moroni on what would have been his 70th birthday.


  1. There's not much information and pictures of Fabrizio Moroni these days. I was pleasantly surprised to find your blog.
    Thank you so much for remembering him.

    Even his own country Italy seems to have forgotten him. Do you know why? Is it because he's never played the main character?

  2. It could very well be he was a supporting actor and not a leading man. He was good looking and a capable actor who never made it to the top. Gone but never forgotten by Euro-western fans.

  3. He was one of the nicest persons I knew. What illness did he have?
