11 Oct Alberto Sordi
Dead: 24 February 2003
In: Piazzale Numa Pompilio, Roma, RM, Italia
He was an Italian actor, voice actor, singer, director and screenwriter.
He was known internationally as the dubbing voice of Oliver Hardy in the Italian version of the Laurel and Hardy films.
Sordi died shortly before his eighty-third birthday following a heart attack.
A crowd in excess of a million gathered to pay their last respects at his funeral by the Basilica of St. John Lateran, the largest of such event ever attended in Rome, second only to that of Pope John Paul II who died two years later.
Sordi was also a big supporter of AS Roma football team.
