Giampiero Albertini (20 December 1927 – 14 May 1991) was an Italian film, television and voice actor.[1]


Born in Muggiò, Albertini started his career as stage actor at the Piccolo Teatro in Milan, under the guidance of Giorgio Strehler.[2][3] In 1962, he made his film debut with Dino Risi's La marcia su Roma, and later worked with, among others, Mario Monicelli, Luigi Comencini, Carlo Lizzani, Francesco Rosi, Gillo Pontecorvo, Nanni Loy. Albertini also was active in poliziotteschi and giallo films, in which he was sometimes credited as Al Albert.[4]

During the 1970s, Albertini was featured in the Ignis commercials as a disgruntled customer struggling to find the items he is searching for.

As a voice actor, Albertini was best known as the official Italian dubbing voice of Peter Falk as the title character in Columbo.[3] He has also occasionally dubbed other actors such as Martin Balsam, Donald Pleasence, Phil Brown, Brian Keith, Terry Jones and Vic Tayback. One of his final dubbing works was the voice of Saddam Hussein in his interview with Bruno Vespa on Rai 1.


Albertini died of a heart attack, at his home in Monte Mario in Rome, on 14 May 1991 at the age of 63.[3] The dubbing voice of Columbo was passed on to Antonio Guidi in the remaining seasons of the show.
