Paolo Villaggio was born on December 30, 1932 and died on July 3, 2017.
He was an Italian actor, voice actor, writer, director and comedian.
Villaggio was 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 favourite character in Italian comedy.
Villaggio authored several books, usually of satirical character.
Villaggio also acted in dramatic roles, and appeared in several movies.
Paolo Villaggio passed away at 84 years old.
