Happy 75th Birthday Renzo Girolami

Renzo Girolami was born on January 12, 1939 in Rome, Italy. A member of the Girolami clan he is the nephew of directors Marino Girolami [1914-1994], Romolo Guerrieri [1931- ] and cousin of actor Enio Girolami [1935-2013] and director Enzo Castellari [1938- ]. Renzo was primarily an assistant director on a dozen films including two Euro-westerns:2 RRRingos from Texas” (1967), “The Wild and the Dirty” (aka Johnny Hamlet) and “Execution” (both 1968), “Durango is Coming, Pay or Die” (1971). Girolami also used the alias Renzo Spaziani. Under this alias he directed “For a Book of Dollars” (1973) starring Lincoln Tate.
Renzo died in Italy sometime in 2000.
Today we remember Renzo Girolami on what would have been his 75th birthday.


  1. Thanks for remembering him, Tom. But: Where does the informatin bout his death come from? Can't find anything.

  2. His death was mentioned to me by Enzo Girolami in a question I sent to him via his website a few years ago asking if Renzo was a relation.
