Alfredo Varelli was born Alfredo Ciavarella on August 31, 1914 in Saracinesco, Rome, Italy. He began very young in the movies (1934). Varelli emerged during the Fascist era, but most of his work was post-Second World War. He played a leading role in the 1942 historical drama “La cena delle beffe” but appeared almost exclusively in minor roles in adventure and costume films, except for the 1945 film directed by Pino Mercanti “All'ombra della Gloria”, in which he starred in the title role. Since 1961 his appearances became less and less and working in small productions. His last major role was the 1987 film of a Peter Greenaway, “The Belly of an Architect”, in which he plays Julio.
Alfredo appeared in two Euro-westerns: “Seven Dollars to Kill” (1966) as the sheriff using the pseudonym Fred Warrel and in “30 Winchesters for El Diablo” in 1969.
Today we celebrate Alfredo Varelli’s 100th birthday.
