Paolo Villaggio

Italian actor, voice actor, writer, director and comedian.

Paolo Villaggio (30 December 1932 – 3 July 2017) was an Italian actor, voice actor, writer, director, and comedian. He is noted for the characters he created with paradoxical and grotesque characteristics: Professor Kranz, the ultra-timid Giandomenico Fracchia, and the obsequious and meek accountant Ugo Fantozzi, perhaps the favorite character in Italian comedy. He wrote several books, usually of satirical characters. He also acted in dramatic roles and appeared in several movies.
