Emilio Cardi Cigoli (18 November 1909 – 7 November 1980) was an Italian actor and voice actor.[1]


Cigoli was born in Livorno to actress Giovanna Cigoli. His grandfather worked as a silent film actor. He began his career on stage at the age of 18 under the guidance of Alfredo De Sanctis and later did work for the EIAR.[2] Cigoli appeared in over 41 films and 20 television shows between 1935 and 1980, mostly in supporting roles. One of his major appearances was in the 1943 film The Children Are Watching Us as well as the 1950 film Sunday in August. Between 1943 and 1945, he worked in Spain with several colleagues to star in two Spanish-Italian films.[3]

Cigoli found great success as a voice dubber, eventually doing voice work for over seven thousand films.[4][5] He was the Italian voice of nearly every major Hollywood star from the 1940s through the 1960s, including Gregory Peck, John Wayne, Gary Cooper, Clark Gable, Henry Fonda, William Holden, Charlton Heston, Burt Lancaster, Steve Reeves, Vincent Price, Lee Van Cleef and Orson Welles. He also dubbed some Italian actors such as Andrea Checchi, Mino Doro, Alberto Farnese, Massimo Serato and Vittorio Gassman. Cigoli has dubbed the voice of the narrator in several documentaries, films and animated productions such as Sleeping Beauty, The Sword in the Stone and The Three Caballeros.

Cigoli married twice and had two children from his first marriage. He died in Rome on 7 November 1980 just 11 days before his 71st birthday.
