Galeazzo Benti (6 August 1923 – 21 April 1993) was an Italian actor. He appeared in 78 films between 1942 and 1991.[1]

Life and career

Born Galeazzo Bentivoglio in Florence, Italy, a descendant of the Bentivoglio family, which ruled Bologna from 1401 until 1506 and from 1511 until 1512, he started his career as a cartoonist and a set designer.[2] After his first roles in 1942, he had his breakout in 1943, in Sergio Tofano's Gian Burrasca, in which he played a frivolous and falsely modest snob, a role he specialized during his career.[2] After successfully alternating between cinema and revue, in the late 1950s he moved to Venezuela, where he worked in a television channel dedicated to Italian immigrants.[2] He came back to Italy in the early 1980s, and here he reprised his acting career equally splitting between films and TV-series until his death from a heart attack in 1993.[2]
