Remembering Vincent Crocitti

Vincenzo Crocitti was born on July 6, 1949 in Rome, Lazio, Italy. Vincenzo always played sympathetic characters, with his very pronounced nose and a smile always on his face.
Crocitti started his career as an actor with many appearances in Italian comedy films, then in the 1990s he came to television in series such as ‘Un medico in famiglia’ for several seasons in which he played doctor Mariano, and in the fictional ‘Carabinieri’. He also appeared in a few episodes of Terence Hill’s ‘Don Matteo’. He’s probably best remembered by Italian audiences for his role as the son of Alberto Sordi in the film “Un borghese piccolo piccolo” for which he won a David di Donatello and a Nastro d'Argento.
Vincenzo appeared in only one Euro-western “Roy Colt and Winchester Jack” (1970) playing a deaf mute.
Crocitti died in Rome on September 29, 2010. He was only 61.
Today we remember Vincenzo Crocitti on what would have been his 65th birthday.
