Did You Know?

Trivia:

His character of Fantozzi is hugely popular in Italy, and that name is a quite common one in that country. There is actually an association of Fantozzis, and they have made him an honorary member. See more »

Trademark:

His trademark character is a low-ranked white collar, with a mediocre life and poor tastes, always mistreated by his superiors, to whom he speaks always in a servile posture and coarse voice.
