Umberto Spadaro was born on November 11, 1904 in Ancona, Marche, Italy. Umberto followed in his father's footsteps, who acted in the company of Giovanni Grasso. It is said that he made his stage debut when he was just six days old in the arms of Angelo Musco. His passion was the theater although he also appeared in over one hundred films. Professionally, he worked often with Turi Ferro which promoted the creation of Teatro Stabile di Catania. Today the acting school of Stable is named after him. He was brother of actor Peppino Spadaro [1898-1950] and actress Grazia Spadaro.
Umberto appeared in two Euro-westerns “A Fistful of Dollars” and “Lost Treasure of the Aztecs” (both 1964).
Spadaro died of cancer in Rome, Italy on October 12, 1981.
Today we remember Umberto Spadaro on what would have been his 110th birthday.
