Little Known Spaghetti Western Actors ~ Franco Aloisi

[These daily posts will cover little known actors or people that have appeared in more recent films and TV series. Various degrees of information that I was able to find will be given and anything that you can add would be appreciated.]

Franco Aloisi was born in Genoa, Liguria, Italy on November 16, 1943. Today he is best known as one of Italy's most important artists of paintings and serigraphs. When he was very young, he asserted himself as an author of comic strips, which were printed in Italian, European and South American periodicals. Starting in the early 1950s, Aloisi contributed to magazines like Lo Scolaro, Calandrino and La Domenica del Corriere. Through Bottaro's studios, the Milanese artist created several characters for the publishing house Alpe, including 'Pietro e Genio', the monkeys 'Trik e Trak', the gorilla 'Napoleon', 'Re Pistacchio', 'Nicolino & Carmelino' and 'L'Incredible Ernesto'. Aloisi eventually abandoned comics to work in theatre, films and the television field.

Franco appeared in only one Euro-western as Fred in 1968’s “Uno di più all'inferno” aka (Full House for the Devil and One More to Hell) with George Hilton and Paolo Gozlino.
