BiographyEdit

Born in Montecchio Emilia, Pisu was considered to be one of the most elegant performers of the Italian cinema. He began his career on stage and screen in 1935, making his debut appearance in The Joker King and also making frequent on-stage collaborations with Andreina Pagnani, Evi Maltagliati, Rina Morelli, Paolo Stoppa and Gino Cervi. Pisu appeared in 90 films between 1935 and 1976 and among his most popular appearances includes the 1965 film Juliet of the Spirits starring Giulietta Masina. He also appeared on television.[2][3]

Pisu was also a popular voice actor and dubber. With a very modulated voice, he dubbed actors such as Gregory Peck, John Wayne, Ward Bond, Walter Pidgeon, Lee J. Cobb, Robert Mitchum, Victor Mature, Fred MacMurray, Kenneth Tobey and many more. In Pisu's animated roles, he voiced Captain in the Italian dub of the 1961 animated film One Hundred and One Dalmatians.

Pisu died from a cerebral hemorrhage at the age of 66.
