Alberto Dell’Acqua was born on May 14, 1944 in Campobasso, Italy. A member of the Dell’Acqua family of circus performers he is the brother of acrobats, stuntmen and actors Arnaldo, Ottaviano [1955- ], Roberto and Fernanda Dell’Acqua. Hired for his athletic abilities Alberto became a main supporting actor in the Italian film industry starting in the mid-1960s. Sometimes billed as Robert Widmark and Cole Kitosch he appeared in two dozen Euro-westerns. Some of his better known westerns are: “7 Guns for the MacGregors” (1965) “Up the MacGregors” (1966) “Texas, Adios” (aka “The Avenger”) (1966), “This Man Can’t Die” (1967), “Kill Them All and Comeback Alone” (1968) and “Alleluia and Sartana, Sons of God” (1972). He starred in “Trinity and Sartana are Coming” (1972) and “Son of Zorro” (1973).
His career has since tailed off and he once again is participating in the circus as a knife thrower.
Today we celebrate Alberto Dell’Acqua’s 70th birthday.
