Didn't know about that, arrigo, but from a quick search, they seemingly required someone between 188 and 190 as his stand-in, not 187: Click Here
Though I doubt Giallini is as tall as that...
As for Gassman, not only he described his father as tall as 187 (which is exactly what the same Vittorio claimed to be), but he also claimed that his grandfather was over 2 metres once. Funnily enough, his son (who recently became quite "famous" for participating in X Factor) looks shortish. Not sure about him, but probably not over 5'8...
arrigo said on 19/Nov/18
Giallini is 1,87 because the production of the fiction "rocco schiavone" made a request for a stand-in (controfigura) with this height.
Andrea said on 2/Nov/18
I'm not sure if Giallini is as tall as 188, but I agree that he looks taller than that 185 figure he generally gets listed at. Somewhere near 187 is quite possible and certainly more likely than 185, I'd say...
And Gassman, WHEN he stands tall, I think looks noticeably taller than him, certainly over an inch and possibly near 2 inches, from what I've seen...
lucad said on 27/Oct/18
I think that marco giallini is 1,88.

A picture with Gabriel Garko would be handy (he specifically claimed 192cm without shoes).
This guy could be a solid 192cm though
Kurtz said on 4/Nov/17
by no means how tall he is listed.
He is not even close to that height.
Marco Giallini an actor who is legit 185 cm. worked with Gassman in the movie "Beata Ignoranza" and Alessandro Gassman is no more than 6'2'' or 188 cm.
188 cm. or 6'2" no more no less.
lucio rome said on 6/Jul/17
in italian tv he said 1,93,sometimes 1,92. kim rossi stuart is 1,87-1,89 and alessandro is taller.

@ Nik - Oh, so would I!
Nik said on 4/Apr/17
I would still rather be called "Gassman" than "Trump" because at least "Gassman" usually refers to an occupation, well if you took out one of the s's it would!
Sandy Cowell said on 3/Apr/17
@ Nik - Though the two names sound completely different, the connotations are one and the same! And great fun! And smashingly rude! 👍
Nik said on 3/Apr/17
It could be worse, at least it is not "Trump"!
Nik said on 2/Apr/17
It was sinister that after I had finished on this page one of my brothers rang my Mum up and just happened to mention about a "gas man" at some point in the call!
Sandy Cowell said on 1/Apr/17
@ Nik - I must admit that the scope for fun with a name like that is enormous!
😖 😟💨 😷😥
Nik said on 30/Mar/17
Yes he has got an interesting name! I bumped into this page by accident when I was checking to see if Chris Gascoyne had a page (you will see the request soon). I couldn't resist coming on to see the comments and it is then that I found your amusing comment.
Sandy Cowell said on 30/Mar/17
What a funny name!
If I met him, I wouldn't be able to resist asking him whether he really is.....oh, I just noticed that he's 6ft3.5, so I don't think it would be at all wise to have a joke at his expense!
No, I'd sooner walk up behind him, tap him on the shoulder and present him with a can of baked beans and a jar of pickled eggs! Then I'd have to run for my life!
If he wasn't before, he would be after eating that lot!
said on 19/Mar/16
Rob, can you give him a photo?
Editor Rob: yes I intend to get through 90% of the pages by the end of the year, by adding missing photos.
said on 18/Nov/15
Rob, where do you think this 193 claim come from? A shoe measurement? It's strange that he ALWAYS claims to be 193, if he didn't measure that mark at some point... Especially if you consider, as i said, that he's said more than once that he'd like to be shorter than that! Why adding more height then? I can certainly believe he'd measure at least 6'3, when he stands straight, but me too i'm not so sure he'd be a big 193!
Editor Rob: he seems to genuinely believe it, and maybe one time he did get that reading, although I would have thought it would have been earlier in the day like 9am.
said on 5/Nov/15
Yeah, but more than ask him his height what can i say? If I insist and say "no you're not 193 because Big Rob has you at 6'3.5 which is nearer 192 so you're trying to steal a cm", he (and probably other people who see these messages) would probably think i'm stupid... He seems a nice guy but it's better not to piss him off ;)
[Editor Rob: I used to ask a few actors years ago, in fact I contacted a lot. Maybe I should try a few from my account again.
said on 4/Nov/15
What about 193? There are some photos where he struggles to look even 6'2 but he really has very bad posture at times... I wonder if he really would measure 193 if he stood tall...
You could ask him via Twitter how tall is he too, i am sure he knows english! And maybe asks him also about his father :)
I didn't want to bother him, so i didn't insist... Anyway, he seems pretty active on Twitter so he probably would answer you!
[Editor Rob: as soon as they see a tweet from celebheights they would be less likely to answer than if a fan asks ;)]
said on 1/Nov/15
Rob, he actually has recently claimed to be 1.94 on Twitter...
[Editor Rob: it seems too much]
Andrea said on 29/Nov/14
As i said, he can look barely 6'2 in many photos or videos but his posture is horrible at times... I doubt he'd measure under 6'3 if he stood straight for a measurement! He's no less than 4.25 inches taller than a guy like Raoul Bova, so 6'3.5 seems a good guess!
said on 10/Nov/14
Rob, here's a scene from The Transporter 2 showing Jason Statham having a brief standoff with Alessandro
Assuming Statham is 5'9 and is "forcing posture" does alessandro appear 6'2 or 6'3?
[Editor Rob: it is hard to imagine him 6 inches taller there...]
said on 20/May/14
Rob, since he claimed both 192 and 193 a lot of times, wouldn't a 6'3.75 listing be fairer? He's really a tricky guy, you can find a lot of pics where he looks like a 6'1-6'2 man tops but then he can look 6'3+...
[Editor Rob: I'd need to see more again of him]
luca said on 5/Jan/14
italian actor max tortora is 1,97.
gianfranco from rome said on 3/Jul/13
gassman junior:193 (sometimes he said 192)
kim rossi stuart in the magazines is described 187.My aunt was friend of kim and she said that he's very tall (but my aunt is short!!).
luca said on 17/Nov/12
Italian fencer giulio gaudini was 2,05 (his son said the real height).
Lo sgozzatore said on 15/Nov/12
Me? The one who's trying to downgrade everyone is you... Nanni Moretti at worst is 6'1.5! If he's really 5'11 as you say, then Ewan McGregor is max 5'6.5-5'7, dont think so :)
Lo sgozzatore said on 3/Nov/12
Yeah Larc! Nanni Moretti is actually pretty tall! I remember Staffelli interviewed him and commented about his height! He said something like "noi che siamo belli alti"! Moretti actually looked a bit shorter than Staffelli!
Larc-186.7cm-188.6cm said on 31/Oct/12
192cm is good for Gassman, he looks near 6'4, an awesome height to be if you ask me.
Didn't know that Nanni Moretti was this tall, I'm surprised, he really looks 6'1.5-6'2 next to Ewan McGregor.
Lo sgozzatore said on 13/Oct/12
Nanni Moretti only 5'11 is impossible! He always looks solid tall, a bit shorter than Gassman! Where do u see 10 cms difference? ahahahha there are some pics of him with Ewan Mcgregor and hes much taller! Anything under 6'1.5 for him is crazy! I'd say hes 6'2 range! Gassman with bad posture can surely look just 6'2, but if he stands straight he probably is near his claim!
ANDREA[ITA] said on 22/Aug/12
Argentero made a movie with Javier Bardem and Julia Roberts and he looked near 6'1! When he joined Big Brother, he was listed at 183 but he recently said 184! I think he might be a strong 6', maybe 6'0.25 but no more! He didnt look much smaller than Gassman but as i said Gassman has very bad posture. I recently saw a movie of him and he was in airport. He actually looked pretty tall and towered most of the people...
Maio said on 17/Aug/12
I'm agree with Andrea: he has usually bad posture. However i think he's not a solid 192 cm, i'm surreale he's not over 190 cm! He looked around 6-8 cm max taller than Luca Argentero, Who claims to be 184 cm but in the truth he's 182-183 cm max!
ANDREA[ITA] said on 1/Aug/12
He actually never looks a big 6'3.5 guy to me but that could be his posture makes him look shorter! He complains about the fact of being too tall, so i dont think he has any reason to lie about that! He really doesnt look over 6'2 most of the times but if he stood straight he probably would measure near that!
maio said on 16/Jun/12
192 cm is absurd for him! 189 cm, max 190 cm is right! no more!
said on 1/Feb/12
ROB? You really think he looks 192? I really dont know what to think about him. He can look just a bit taller than average height people but at the same time, when he's with legit tall people, he looks very tall. For example, i saw some pics of him with Kim Rossi Stuart, who i think is no less than 6'2, and he actually has at least an inch on him. He's still a mistery to me. Sorry for the question but why do you add people that you know very little? Where did you see Gassman? I mean, you could add other italian people that are surely more famous than Gassman...
[Editor Rob: I don't have enough knowledge about Italian actors, but since he claims to be this tall, maybe it's worth just listing him at it.]
ANDREA[ITA] said on 23/Jan/12
Ok, Rob, i gave you the claim because he always speaks about his height. But do you really think he's this tall? He really doesnt look neither 6'3 lots of the times to me...
said on 22/Jan/12Click Here
Rob, in this article he claims that at just 14 of age, he was already 193. But i can also give you videos where he claims 192. He sometimes claimed 192, other times 193. Are you gonna upgrade him? I think too that he doesnt look over 6'3 but maybe he's got poor posture, not sure on him. He can look just normal tall lots of times.
[Editor Rob: I'll put him at 192 and mention that quote]
said on 21/Jan/12
Rob, i was reading the comment of a girl that said that Kim claimed during a conference to be 194 and that she has the video. On the net there's no trace of this. He's very tall but 194 sounds impossible for him. Am i right? :O
[Editor Rob: it would seem unlikely, if you find me a gassman quote from Italian interview I would add it to the top.]
ANDREA[ITA] said on 21/Jan/12
Yeah i'm the first saying he could be a solid 6'2. But why should he say 187, if he isnt? He always looks very tall on screen and i read some comments of people that met him and always described him as very very tall. He's very thin so he could appear even taller. The thing is that i saw some pics of him with Alessandro Gassman and he appeared at least 1 inch shorter. So maybe Gassman is really 192-193 as he always claim? Rob why dont you post his quote about his height? You always do it with the celebrities in this site. I can give you some articles where he claims 192 or 193. He often talks about his height and the fact that he is too tall. You want them?
said on 20/Jan/12
Rob, any answers? :O
[Editor Rob: 187 with long legs could be like a 6ft 3 man. If he claims 187, then it is quite possible, but what if you get measured 187.5...some might just drop the 0.5 rather than saying 188.]
ANDREA[ITA] said on 18/Jan/12
Rob, so you'd give 188 more than 187 to kim rossi stuart? I read an article where he complained about the berths (im not sure that's the correct word in english) on the trains because he's too tall for them and there he claimed 187! You think that already at 187 you have "problems" about your height?
ANDREA[ITA] said on 14/Jan/12
Rob, but this thing that a guy doesnt stand as tall as he could, you could apply to every celeb that look taller, like Tom Welling. He probably measured almost 6'3 not standing tall, if he stood tall he'd be over 6'3 and that's explained why he looks taller
said on 14/Jan/12
You mean a bit taller than 187? Why should he claim that, if he's more?
[Editor Rob: maybe he was measured 187, but other times he could measure near 188. Possibly didn't stand as tall as he could.]
Attila_194cm. said on 14/Jan/12
Andrea,I think that Kim Rossi Stuart is 190,no less than 189.I saw in a italian transmission Kim near Alessandro Gassman and there is a clearly less difference between the two actors,Gassman is 1/2 cm taller tahn Kim.
said on 13/Jan/12
Rob, do you know Kim Rossi Stuart? He's an italian actor. In an interview i read he's 187, on a lots of a sites he's listed at 188. Click Here
here he is with Paz Vega, in heels and looks way taller! But that's not the only photo of them! In a lot he looks way taller, while she's wearing heels! If she's 5'6.5, she must be about 5'10 in those heels and he should be max 190 in shoes (if he really just 187 as he claimed). That's not only 13 cms. What do you think? He always appears very tall
I saw some pics and videos of him with the italian actress Valeria Solarino and he looks much taller than her, who's no less than 170. There are pics of Valeria Solarino with Rupert Everett, listed here at 6'4, and there's clearly less difference.
[Editor Rob: there might be more chance paz is a bit shorter and he is a bit taller. I've not seen anything of the guy apart from a few pictures.]
ANDREA[ITA] said on 9/Jan/12
mmm, shoes with heels for garko? are you kidding? he doesnt need them! he's 188-189 like you said, same of staffelli!
Attila_194cm.(ITA) said on 8/Jan/12
Alessandro Gassman is no less than 191cm(6'3),his father Vittorio Gassman was 188/189 peak.Giulio Berruti is 188 claimed by herself in a italian transmission.Gabriel Garko claimed 190 but he is no more than 188/189,maybe he looks 191/192 in shoes with heels in italian fiction 'Onore e il Rispetto'.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 18/Dec/11
Luca, Giulio Berruti claimed to be 188-189 and i think he was honest about it... Garko claimed 190, he's surely near that but more likely a bit shorter like 188-189. Alessandro Gassman claims 192 and 193 but he doesnt look over 190!
maio said on 11/Dec/11
i saw him once. He's a strong 6 ft 2.75 in/190 cm. His father Vittorio Gassman was probably 6 ft 1.5 in/187 cm at his peak, and then he lost a good inche (my dad, who was 6 ft 2.5 in/189 cm at his peak, took a pic with him in 1965 and the actor was slightly shorter)...in 'Sleepers' he was in the 5 ft 11.5/182 cm - 6 ft 0.5/184 cm range...
luca said on 8/Dec/11
garko is 190,gassman 193 and berruti 190.gassman's father was 187.
said on 28/Oct/11
Rob, who's taller between the two guys?
the one with the white shirt claims to be 6'2 and he actually looks it!
The other man looks taller but he's close to the camera... what you think?
Another one: Click Here
said on 19/Oct/11
which is the difference here, rob?
[Editor Rob: in one photo maybe 2cm]
said on 15/Oct/11
Hey Rob! This guy claims to be 188,189... If he's that heigth, how tall the woman should be? She's wearing heels...
[Editor Rob: she looks like she might drop more posture than him, but appears roughly 5 inches smaller. Depends on heels]

Wow larc are you italian? Have you got a contact or something similar? Id like to talk with an italian user! Grazie :)
Larc 6 ft 1.75 in said on 4/Oct/11
Gabriel Garko isn't quite 6'3, he looks shorter than Gassman all the time, only a blind or a fan would say the opposite, let's be honest.
My aunt is a tailor (so she's very good at guessing heights), and she has met him at Rome 3 years ago, when I asked her how tall he was, she replied: - barely 1inch taller than you.
He's 6'2.5 or 6'2.75 at most.
said on 30/Sep/11
Rob, this is Gabriel Garko and Danny Quinn, the son of Anthony! If you look for photos of Danny and his father, Danny looks about 1 inch taller but Anthony was old in those photos so i think he was no more than 6'1! Danny Quinn is listed at 188, i think it's fair! He's the one on the right! How tall does Garko look? Is it a good photo to compare Garko?Click Here
[Editor Rob: looks about an inch between them]
said on 28/Sep/11
ROB, Could you tell me what you think are the difference of heights of the people in the photo?
If the guy on the right is about 189-190, how tall are the others?
[Editor Rob: from a screengrab like that maybe near to 179-180 or 170 for other guy]
said on 21/Sep/11
ROB, what about this comparison?

here Steve della Casa with Garko: Click Here
What do you think? And sorry if write in this page, but you dont have a page for him.
said on 20/Sep/11
ROB, you said he looks six-three to you, right? But who do you compare him with? Is he famous, outside italy? Last week i asked you about Gabriel Garko. You know him? you said you have not people to compare him with! Then why you have Gassman? Can you add Garko? Look at this: Click Here
there's some photos, there's Garko and Brody Hutzler, not together. If you compare them to the wall they look very similar. Is that a good way to compare them or not? Thank you, Rob. From italy
[Editor Rob: if they were in the same position and the same cameraman it'd be a rough idea, but they look different positions]
ANDREA[ITA] said on 20/Sep/11
6ft3 is a strong 190. ROB, why would he give 192 and sometimes 193 as his height! I mean: he complains about the fact hes too tall and he gives a bigger height?
said on 18/Sep/11
ROB, how tall do you think he really is? He claimed to be 192 and 193! He said he's too tall, he always talks about that, also that he would like to be 15 cms shorter! In many pics he doesnt look over 188 so i dunno what to think! Do you think he really is 193? Could be that he slouches a lot, then i notice that he often wears thin shoes... Dunno! Who met him said that he's very tall but in pics, most of the times, he doesnt look 192-193! Where did you take the 6ft3?
[Editor Rob: thats my first thought- he look six three, but maybe he slouches more than we think ]
Andrea [ITA] said on 1/Feb/11
He claims to be 192-193 lots of time. I was the first to say that he was no way over 190... But i notice that he always slouches in the photos... Lots of people say he's very tall and he also said hw would like to be 10 cms shorter... Don't think he lied. He could be 192/193 in the morning and 190 (no less) in the night...
Kratos said on 8/Apr/09
There is no way Gassman is 6'4,people tend to lie about their height,jhe is more like 6'3.
And that 6'2 for Bud Spencer is ridicoulus,he is more like 6'4.
luca said on 12/Jan/09
He said:"I'm 1,93".6'4" is his real height.Not 190-192.
italian boy said on 11/Jan/09
i saw him 1 years ago in the theatre and he is very tall..a bit more than 190cm maybe 192cm is the real height
luca rix said on 5/Dec/08
Yesterday I read an interview to Alessandro Gassman;he said:when i Was 17 I played with "Fabia Roma" in the second division of italian basketball(A2) and I was pivot because I was 1,93(6'4").The other Pivots were taller than me so I became point guard but I wasn't a good player.So I became actor".
193 is the official height of Gassman.His father was 1,92 when he was young and I became 1,88 in his last years of life.
Kim Rossi Stuart is 1,88-1,89.
teddy89 said on 20/Nov/08
to be italian like me (i'm 5'8) they're very tall, but i think that gassman is 190cm and kim rossi stuart is 188cm.
marcello said on 4/Mar/08
gassman said that when he was 12 he was 1,80.His father said that from 14 to 16 he gained 20cm(8 inches)
said on 2/Mar/08
Alessandro Gassman is described 1,93.I read 1,92 too.He is for sure taller than 1,90.
Glenn said that vittorio gassman was 1,88.Some sources give him in his prime 1,92.
Kim Rossi Stuart is described 1,88.Some people say 1,89.
I saw Vittorio Gassman and Kim Rossi Stuart in a theatre of Rome and they were tall.
this is kim rossi stuart Click Here
Lynn said on 29/Feb/08
not sure that Alessandro Gassman is more than 190 cm.
Furthemore I have always had the impression that his father Vittorio was the same height of Pippo Baudo.
luca said on 28/Feb/08
he played in the second division of italian basketball.I watched a friendly match of his team against a team of famous italian players of the past(Walter Magnifico 2,09 and Carera 2,06).

Bud Spencer was a slight taller until the 80's when he started to be a little older and lost a pair of inches....anyway on that interview in the 70's he said that he is 1,93 meters barefoot (6'4'') and weights 132 kg (291 pounds oucch!!!) plus a 13 us size of shoes!!!Bud Spencer was really a huge man, and it is all true considering that terence hill was listed at 1,82 meters (5'11,75'')barefoot and the difference in all their movies was clearly at least 4 inches or more than 10 cm....By the way why anyone has put the profile of these great actors??

yes Gotxco,raul bova is 181cm.three years ago i read that he was 183-185 cm.but his real height is 181cm.bud spencer was 194cm but now he's 190cm.daniele liotti is very tall but i don't know his height.
Gotxo said on 19/May/06
I can't agree with you, another italian poster in this page has given 181cm for Raul Bova, supossedly that's what he self reported on some italian channel show.
And Bud Spencer is clearly taller than 6'2" dude! He was a former professional swimmer (belive it or not he was thin when young), he was listed 194cm then. The others are unknown to me, but i'm curious in Umberto Eco's height and Daniele Liotti's ones. Any kind italian can help me on that?
