Carlo Verdone: 5'9 (175 cm)
Paolo Villaggio: 5'5 (165 cm)
Renato Pozzetto: 5'7 (170 cm)
Claudio Amendola: 5'9 (175 cm)

I don't know... Some of those listings really look just as random as those you can find on Google or sites like IMDb!
Just to name one, here's Michele Placido's (Violante's father) profile: Click Here I certainly refuse to believe that 185 is what he really claims, as that's simply absurd! I mean, look at him with a guy who truly claims 185 (or at least that's what he's listed at on his agency): Click Here Funnily enough, they're both listed at 185 on e-TALENTA: Click Here And that's one example, but I could go on and on...
Editor Rob
It's a casting site. Either the actor themselves or their agent is putting the details into it. Sometimes agencies can give strange heights for an actor!

@Editor Rob,

Franco (along with other Italian Actors) have claimed a height in cm on this site…….

Pretty interesting site BTW. Wonder if any of their listings are near the truth or exaggerated?

What do u think Rob?
Editor Rob
Not too surprising Nero had a 182cm listing, I will mention that on his page.
FE said on 14/Mar/19
@Editor Rob,

He's listed 181cm on his E-Talenta profile...

It's probably what he claims, which sounds very believable.

What do u think Rob?
Editor Rob
Yes that is a site used for casting, so I'll mention it at the top thanks.

Chiambretti second me is under 5'3"(160 cm). Here a photo with De Sica, he is 184cm(about 6'1") for the web:

Maybe Rob can say the height of Chiambretti

Italian politicians marco pannella and bettino craxi were 1,91 and 1,92.
Andrea said on 21/Mar/16
I have not seen anything of her, apart from Daredevil! Of course Raoul must have some camera advantage there but it's still hard to believe there would only 4 good inches between them! I'm sure that if you showed this photo to any random people they would say he's a lot taller than her!
As for Bova, he can definitely pull off 6' at times in movies but there are also photos (like those with self-claimed 193 Luca Toni) where he looks 5'11 at most!
Andrea said on 19/Mar/16
Rob, enjoy a Raoul looking 6'3 range next to a (5'7?) Rosario Dawson: Click Here
I don't know whether Rosario is really as tall as listed but he does look well over 181 there and he seems very happy about that xD
And you finally gave a photo to him too, nice! :)
Editor Rob: rosario can look 5ft 6 a fair bit, I know she made a point of having tall parent and not being as tall...maybe she wishes she was tall.
Andrea said on 24/Nov/15
Rob, how much do these shoes give? Click Here
The guy on the right claims 189 and he looks genuinely that tall! As you can see, Bova can look nearer 6' than 5'11 at times but i've noticed he wears thick shoes at some "events"... I don't think he's the kind of guy who would wear lifts but i know he was in a movie with Sly, maybe he got some tricks by him :)
I wish i could find a quote from him but i haven't. I've read on some italian forums that he claimed 181 on a tv programme but i haven't found anything "concrete"!
Editor Rob: those are certainly a thicker style of shoe, in the 1.5 inch range is likely.
Andrea said on 17/Nov/15
Rob, how tall would you say the guy on the left is? Sorry, if i post again on this page but you can see him with Bova, who is one of the few italian actors on here!
Click Here
I don't know what he says, i've seen some 185 listings but i do think he clears 185 when he stands tall... I don't think he's under 186-187 and can even look a bit taller than that at times... I know you should see more of him but at least do you agree he looks 2 good inches taller than Bova? Consider that he's got quite a big head too...
I've just seen him in a movie with Gassman and he looked about 2 inches shorter than him: Click Here
Editor Rob: in one photo he can look near 2 inches taller (not in the one he's standing loose)
Andrea said on 26/Oct/15
Rob, how tall do you think the guy on the left is?
Click Here
He generally claims 197, but i am sure he also claimed 196 at one point! I think he must be somewhere in 6'5 range... He's a guy who at times does not have good posture and can look 6'4-6'4.5 but i think he comfortably would be taller than that, if standing straight for a measurement! Also, he's 52 in this photo so it's possible he has lost a fraction by now... Incidentally, the blonde girl claimed to be 180 on her Twitter...
[Editor Rob: 196cm could be possible, his eyelevel is tilted down a fraction so I could believe he looked near 6ft 5 there.]

In this photo with 6'3 listed Garko he appears taller than 5'11. I can't see 4 inches difference, considering garko is standing on his left feet. Maybe Garko exaggerate his height and is more in the 6'1 range
Marco said on 18/Oct/14
I'm from Pesaro too. I don't know how tall Federica Pellegrini is, but i can certify that Filippo Magnini is 1.85 mt, because i met him few times, while Valentino rossi is between 1.78 and 1.80 mt.
Federica looks about 10 cms shorter than Magnini, so 1.75 mt sounds good.
kevin mask said on 8/Oct/14
@marla singer, Federica Pellegrini is 5'10
Simo said on 26/Mar/14
Mika is a good 192cm

next mika looks short maybe 1,79mt
Lo sgozzatore said on 12/Jun/13
Having seen many movies/tv series with Bova, I'd say he can look anything from 5'11 to 6'. 5'11.25 is a good guess...
marla singer said on 22/Apr/13
A friend of mine met Federica Pellegrini in Pesaro a few days ago and took a photo with her and a guy who was with her, does anyone know how tall is she? My friend is a strong 5'2" but in the picture she got dwarfed... there was like a 25 cm difference!
Larc 74in said on 4/Feb/13
Hogans shoes brand new adds 4cm, nothing more, after a while they drop to 3.5cm.
And Mammucari isn't over 182cm.
Lo sgozzatore said on 25/Jan/13
Hogan add 5.5 inches, Rob? I think that if they did, Sly would already have bought the entire company :)
Teo Mammuccari claimed 187, but he himself didnt believe that... He always looks tall on television, but if you see him next to Amendola, he looks a bit taller. He was shorter than Andrew Howe, that claims 183 on his site. Anyway, he can look anything in the 182-184 range in my opinion. I noticed that he sometimes wears shoes like hogan, so he can look taller than he is.
marla singer said on 23/Jan/13
Anyone knows how tall Teo Mammucari is? He looked taller than most people on the "Guinness World Records Show" and "The Illusionist". I think just looking at his frame (nobody to compare him with) he could be 6 ft 1 or 6 ft 2 range.
P.s. Of course it depends on brands/models etc., but it's impossible Hogan shoes or similars give any less than 4-5 cm, they look double sized beside my classic Dr Martens
HeightSpotter said on 23/Jan/13
Those hogan add at least 5 cm. I got them. This is why bova looks taller than butler, who clearly is 181-182 flat, no more.
Mark Till toronto said on 22/Jan/13
Hogan shoes add 5.5 inches...believe me!!!
Lo sgozzatore said on 16/Dec/12
Agreed, Rob, you rule out 6'0.25 for butler? I'd start with downgrading him to 6'0.5, same as Cooper
[Editor Rob: although of course he can look below 6ft 1 at times, I'm not sure he really is just 184cm.]
Larc-186.7cm-188.6cm said on 16/Dec/12
@marla singer:
Those shoes are Hogan's, but they aren't elevator shoes, they add 1.5 inches max, I have them.
Butler has Adidas Superstar on, which are 0.75-1 at most, so Bova has only 0.5-0.75 advantage, and still the height difference is minimal.

Bova 5'11.25+1.5 = 6'0.75
Butler 6'0.25+0.75-1 = 6'1-6'1.25

Seems reasonable to me, let's not forget the fact that Butler looks at 100% the same as Bradley Cooper, who is also around 6'0. And Cooper is shorter than 186-187 Ryan Reynolds, this means that Butler is nowhere near 185, let alone 186.

Butler is 6'0.25 to me, he just doesn't look as tall a legit 6'1 man, like Kevin Costner or Bill Murray.

My father is also 5'11.25 today, and I look clearly taller than him at 6'1.5, even with footwear disadvantage, and Butler is supposed to be only 0.25 shorter than me? No way, just no way.

6'0.25 max.
Lo sgozzatore said on 14/Dec/12
2-2.25 inches is impossible, come on! He's not Tom Cruise or Stallone! I agree that he has shoe advantage, but i doubt those shoes give more than about 1.5 inches! That's why i said Butler could be 6', i'm being generous because he looks shorter than that with Bova! Bova looked shorter than 181 with Luca Toni, who claimed 193. Butler is a bit taller than Bova. Do your maths
marla singer said on 14/Dec/12
@Lo sgozzatore: actually Butler is leaning his neck a lot (imagine if he stood properly straight, he would look taller) and he has pretty thin insoled shoes... Raoul Bova's ones look a lot similar to Hogan elevator shoes that are so popular in Italy (though they are so ugly looking). My mum has them (they're not original of course) they add about 1.75in to actual height but she's UK size 4.5 (eu 37). Bova has a much bigger foot (on him they might add 2-2.25in) so Rob has listed them (roughly) right.
Lo sgozzatore said on 13/Dec/12
I know, Larc :)
Thats why i said Butler could easily be 6' range, he looks that with Cooper! But Rob has to protect his celebrities then keeps italian celebs higher than they are! An italian 5'11 celebrity is taller than a 5'11 celebheights celebrity! I saw that with most of the celebrities on here... It seems italians downgrade their heights, dont ask me why, ask Rob

Lo sgozzatore said on 12/Dec/12
Its not only a photo, i posted many photos, Rob! Maybe not 179, but 180 flat could be on the money
[Editor Rob: 180 is not impossible]
Lo sgozzatore said on 11/Dec/12
Then, rob, why you still keep him at 181?
[Editor Rob: it's just one photo, as a whole if he kept looking 179 in lots of cases then i'd change him]
Larc-186.7cm-188.6cm said on 11/Dec/12
@Lo sgozzatore:
Luca Toni claimed 193-194-195 in different interviews, he looks very tall however, but he's for sure an hair shorter than Ibrahimovic, so 193 is a good guess.
Lo sgozzatore said on 11/Dec/12
Thanks rob for ignoring again the question! :)
You still think Bova is 181, next to 193 Luca Toni?
[Editor Rob: in that one photo he looks less than 181]
Lo sgozzatore said on 11/Dec/12
And what about Bar Refaeli? You didnt answer! She makes that girl look almost 5'9, she claimed 170 and always looked 5'6 range... Its not the first time that an italian "celebrity" looks taller than their claim next to your listed celebrities! I remember Butler with Bova, James marsden with Facchinetti and Argentero, Argentero with Bardem, Jennifer Lopez,etc... You think that it is the italian celebrities that are downgrader (no sense) or you're too good with a lot of celebs?
Lo sgozzatore said on 11/Dec/12
Rob, maybe you're used to illegit 6'4 guys like jason segel... You say he can look very tall... A real 6'4 doesnt look very tall? Think about a Alexander Skarsgard, a Jeff Goldblum, a Jared Padalecki. Dont they look very tall?
[Editor Rob: luca looks very tall, as do other guys like that in 6ft 4 range. ]
Lo sgozzatore said on 10/Dec/12
Rob, i found the interview of Toni, Click Here
He says he is 193, wears 45 eu shoe size (which should be 11 us), so not very big feet, like a Tom Welling who's supposed to be shorter but wears 14 us! You still think he's 6'5? Why should he claim 193?
[Editor Rob: he can look very tall, if he says 193 then maybe that's what he is measured at then.]
Lo sgozzatore said on 10/Dec/12
Rob, you think Bar is 5'9? She makes this italian girl look around 5'9, she claimed 170 but she's more likely 5'6 range!
Larc-186.7cm-188.6cm said on 10/Dec/12
@Lo sgozzatore:
Bar Refaeli doesn't look over 5'6 with Canalis, even if Canalis is 5'7 (which I doubt), this blonde girl looks around the same as her. Nowhere near 5'9.
Lo sgozzatore said on 8/Dec/12
Well, Fulco himself claimed 189, so 6'2.25 is bang on in my opinion! De Sica can still look 6' today, so he could have been near 6'1 at peak! Elisabetta Canalis looks near or even taller than Bar Refaeli (both in heels)... Rob listed bar at 5'9 and says she's near that! Look for the pics...
Larc-186.7cm-188.6cm said on 8/Dec/12
@marla singer:
Alessandra Mastronardi looks 5'4 to me, Penelope Cruz can be 5'5, and with a bit of footwear advantage can look almost 3 inches taller.

I met Fabio Fulco some days ago, and he was barely taller than me, he is either 188 or 189 max so 6'2-6'2.5, Cristina Chiabotto said that he's 188 and I believe her claim. If he's just 188 then Cristina is 180-181 max and not the 184 that she claims.

I was probably still a bit over 187 when I met him, since it was in the late morning.
--
Belen at 5'9 is a joke, those girls are way shorter than we can imagine, but I think she's 5'7-5'8 range in truth, she looks tall, Canalis claims 5'7 but looks 5'5 range.
Neri Marcorè is 6'2-6'2.25 for sure, he's pretty much always taller than most people he has around.

@Maio:
Say what you want but I believe that Christian De Sica was close 6'1 at peak, he still looks tall today at 61y and looked taller than basically everyone in his old movies.

He was a guest at "Chi ha incastrato Peter Pan" in 2009, and next to Bonolis (who claims 5'11 but is more like 5'10 range) he looked almost 3 inches taller.
marla singer said on 5/Dec/12
@maio: Belen under 5 ft 7? O.o she looks taller than Elisabetta Canalis who claims 5'7 but is more like 5'6
@Larc-186.7-188.6cm I found out that Alessandra Mastronardi met 5'4 Penelope Cruz, and Penelope had like 3inches on her! Click Here Penelope might have higher heels, but she still is too taller than her... here their heels are visible Click Here either Penelope is 5'6, or Alessandra is 5'3
Lo sgozzatore said on 20/Nov/12
Well, first of all i gotta say i didnt see many things with him. I think ive read somewhere a 180 listing for him. He does look near that! Before reading that listing, i guessed around 5'10.5 too. Abatantuono can look anything in the 5'11-6' range... He looks a guy who has lost height but i'd say 5'11.5 today! I know about the pics with marcore, who claimed 188, 189 and even 190. For me, he could easily be 6'2.5, he looks pretty tall! I seriously doubt abatantuono is under 180... Yeah, in that pic he looks 3-4 cms taller than Ruffini but Ruffini does wear thin shoes lots of times, so the difference could be less... In that pic with Vieri theres not much difference, i doubt 6-7 cms: ruffini does look max 5 cms, but thats just a pic, i didnt see the show (which really sucks, its not funny at all)... FabioDe Luigi always looked 5'11.5 to me, 180 flat maybe but no less...
So i'd say: Ruffini 5'11 Abatantuono 5'11.5 Fabio De Luigi 5'11.5 Vieri 6'1
Lo sgozzatore said on 15/Nov/12
Yeah, in fact i said i dont know about De Sica's peak... I have no idea if he lost height or not but i doubt he's anything under 5'11.5, 182-183 i think is ok... Mammuccari can look anything in the 182-185 range. He claimed 187 which is a bit too high. Luca Argentero looked close to 6'1 next to Javier Bardem and James Marsden, he claimed both 183 and 184, i think he's quite honest about it. Gassman can look slightly taller than him but that's probably because of his very bad posture. Pirlo is listed at 5'9.5, if im not wrong, even if 5'9 is not impossible at all. The lowest i can give to Conti is 5'7.75, he can look it sometimes but other times he can surely look 5'8-5'9. For sure he's not the 180 he claimed!
Lo sgozzatore said on 14/Nov/12
Hey maio, sorry to say that but it seems you downgrade people a bit too much! De Sica always looked tall, i dont know about his peak, but he still doesnt look under 5'11.5-6' today! I just saw some pics of him with Carlo Conti where De Sica is at least 4 inches taller (i doubt Conti is under 5'8, he looked a bit shorter than Andy Garcia and Sylvester Stallone, who had lifts on for sure)... Amendola at 175, well that's not impossible but i think 5'9.5 (176-177), considering he often wears big shoes. He didnt look much shorter than Teo Mammuccari, that isnt under 182-183! About Sgarbi, i think he's about 5'10 range, maybe a bit less. He sometimes doesnt have good posture, so he can look shorter! I read somewhere that someone asked Luca Toni how tall he is and he answered he got measured at 193. 194 is not impossible at all, but he looked shorter than Ibrahimovic in some pics. About Gassman, he's a tricky guy because he can look max 6'2 in a lot of pics but i believe that when he stands straight, he's pretty close to his claim. He's a guy who has very bad posture and can look noticeably shorter than 192-193. I doubt Bova is under 5'11. No way he wears lifts ahahahah Dont say BS, man
Lo sgozzatore said on 10/Nov/12
Well, he has big physique which helps him look even bigger... I dont remember where, but i saw some photos of him with Ibrahimovic and Toni did look clearly shorter, something like 1-2 cms... If he claimed to have been measured at 6'4, maybe that's really his height. Don't you think?
Lo sgozzatore said on 9/Nov/12
Rob, see the guy on the right of Bova... He's a famous footballer, Luca Toni, claimed 195 but i remembered he also claimed he was measured at 193... He probably is a big 6'4 guy, like Jared Padalecki...
Click Here Click Here
You agree that Bova struggles to look 181 with him?
[Editor Rob: toni does always look a big guy on the field, I would have thought he was near 6ft 5 by how he looks, he makes bova look average.]
Lo sgozzatore said on 28/Oct/12
Rob, finally some pics of the two italian actors you have here, Bova and Gassman:

Larc-186.7-188.6cm said on 20/Oct/12
I agree with Lo sgozzatore.

@marla singer:
Sometimes Branciamore looks taller than Amendola, sometimes shorter, there's maybe a difference between their footwear, or Amendola wears bigger shoes? Who knows?

Anyway I don't think that Matteo Branciamore is under 5'10.
Yes the average female here in Italy is 5'4, Alessandra Mastronardi claims 166 and is listed at that height, but looks more 164 to me, maybe 163, if she's under this mark I'd be surprised.

Returning to Raoul Bova, he claims 181cm and pretty much always looks it.
marla singer said on 18/Oct/12
I'm not sure 5'10" for Matteo... if you Click Here you'll see Amendola and Branciamore are about the same height, or Amendola is slightly taller... and Alessandra has heels on like all the other women but she doesn't look average. Our female average in Italy is just 5'4" so she might be 5'3", or 5'4" even, but for sure nothing around what she claims to be.
Lo sgozzatore said on 15/Oct/12
Yeah, Amendola is about 176-177... Branciamore is nera his claim, about 5'10. Alessandra Mastronardi really doesnt look over 5'4, i saw pic of her (in heels) with an actor who claims 188-189 and she's dwarfed... Fassari really looks 171-172, as Larc says. About Max Tortora, he claimed 196 and 197. He surely is very tall but i wouldnt be surprised if he'd measure just 195. Fremont is listed at 173 but he just doesnt look it, next to Branciamore. I think he's nearer the 5'7 mark. Elena Sofia Ricci looks about 162-163, last week she said to be short (i dont think 168-169 is short for a woman).
Larc-186.7-188.6cm said on 15/Oct/12
@marla singer:
- Claudio Amendola is more 176 than 177, but claims 179.
- Matteo Branciamore is quite honest, he claims 178 and looks it.
- Alessandra Mastronardi looks 164cm to me, but claims 166.
- Antonello Fassari looks 171-172cm.
- Max Tortora isn't under 196cm.
- Ludovico Fremont seems clearly shorter than Branciamore, he's maybe 172-173cm.
- Elena Sofia Rocci seems to be 168-169cm next Amendola.

Don't know much about the others.
marla singer said on 14/Oct/12
@ITALIANS: how tall are "Cesaroni" cast's actors, if Amendola is 5'9.5"?
I'm curious about Walter, Alessandra Mastronardi who claims 5'5.5" but always wears heels on the episodes and Elena Sofia Ricci.
Lo sgozzatore said on 13/Oct/12
If Tortora stands straight, there are 5 inches between them! So lets say that Tortora is about 6'5, De Sica really doesnt look over 6' today!
Larc-186.7-188.6cm said on 13/Oct/12
@Lo sgozzatore:
Vittorio Sgarbi looked just over 5'11 in his younger days, he was not far from a younger Pippo Baudo, who wasn't less than 185-186cm.
De Sica still looks close to 6'1 next to Max Tortora.
Lo sgozzatore said on 13/Oct/12
Yep! Not sure on De sica, today he looks in the 5'11-6' range. Dunno about his peak. Berlusconi without his lifts isnt really over 5'5 and not 5'6 as Rob said. Sgarbi looks 5'9.5 to me. Belen is not under 5'7, i think 170-171 is a good guess. 166 is quite impossible since she looked taller than Elisabetta Canalis, who isnt under 5'6! Celentano today looks a bit taller than Gianni Morandi, who's like 167-168 i think, maybe 170 and about 5'8-5'9 when he was younger. Filiberto is about 180 for sure.
Larc-186.7-188.6cm said on 13/Oct/12
@maio:
No way, I'm italian too and it goes more like this:

De Sica: 6'1 (peak) - 6'0.5 (now)
Bova: 5'11.25
Magnini: 6'1.5
Berlusconi: Not over 5'5 flat
Valentino Rossi: 5'10
Sgarbi: 5'11.25 peak, 5'10.5 now
Belen: 5'7-5'8 range
Celentano: 5 '8.5-5'9 (peak), around 5'8 now
Corona: 6'0-6'0.25
E. Filiberto: 5'11

I'm italian. Now the average of the 20-year boys is 5.10 for the polentons and 5.9 for the terrons.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 24/Jan/12
I believe you, maio. A real 196 guy is gonna look huge to almost everybody, he could say to be 2 metres and a lots of people can believe that. I actually see very few people that are 6'5+... That's normal :)
maio said on 22/Jan/12
there is a friend of mine who's a REAL and STRONG 6 ft 5 in/196 cm (198 cm in the morning and 196 cm before bed, and he claims to be 2 mt). I can garanted to you he's considered abnormal: he's to tall and we call him (friendly) "pertica". Personally i think, averagely, when an italian guy is considered tall he's in the 5 ft 11 in - 6 ft 0 in range...it's difficult meet people from the 6 ft 1 in to the 6 ft 2 in , and over 6 ft 3 in is very very difficult...
ANDREA[ITA] said on 21/Jan/12
Well, Attila according to Rob, if you're 193 before bed, you're just 193. Not 194 as you say. Anyway, i live near Milan and i agree in part with you. I mean, today, at least where i live, its not rare at all to meet guys in the 6'-6'2 range. But it doesnt mean that's average. The thing is that you probably just notice tall guys so you think that most are in the 6'-6'2 range. To me, a guy that is 6'2 is just tall. After 6'3 someone starts to be very tall. After 6'6 a guy is huge.

I'm really 194cm,195 out of bed,194 during the day,193 before bed.I don't need to declare higher than I'm.I also know many people who claim higher than they are,but i consider ridiculous.About overall average i agree with you,180 for Italy is true,maybe i met many tall people than you met...can be explained so.
maio said on 19/Jan/12
i don't belive you're 194 cm, firts. Everyboy in italy claims to be taller, i know diffrent people who are 185 cm and claims to be 190 cm!ahahahah! second, i go every year in sicily on holiday, because i've house near palermo and i never seen many people over six feet, perhaps i'm not lucky but personally, but i don't think so...the 'height' range in italy is in the 180 cm, you can see a lot of people shorter than this mark and not very much people higher.
Attila_194cm. said on 18/Jan/12
maio you're wrong...now you talk of urban legends...maybe in the 18th/19th terroni were shorter than polentoni...now the difference no longer exists..In Sicily or in the south of Italy there are a lot of people over 6ft.However i'm a terrone and i'm 1,94 m. and i have blue eyes,so who is the terrone?...ahahah don't make me laugh maio...You remember the Normans domination in the south of Italy around the XI/XII A.D (d.C).Some knowledge is not bad...
maio said on 17/Jan/12
in sicily guys are in the 6 ft- 6ft2? but, please... i come from the north of italy and it's unusual to find someone who's over 6 ft 2 in! i dont think in sicily is diffrent, also because terroni are shorter than people who came from the north!

sorry, but from which part of italy you came from? A LOT OF guys in the 6'/6'2 range?!?!?! mmmm, i think you're wrong...
Attila_194cm. said on 8/Jan/12
I'm italian and i'm 6'4,today a lot of italian boys are around 6'/6'2,Raul Bova belongs to the older generation,so 5 ft 11.25 in is possible,i meet him and he looks a bit taller than 5'11(180),so 181/182 for Raul is accurate.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 3/Jan/12
Rob, Bova is really no more than 180! What about downgrading him? I think i know him better than you :)

@michele90: Gerry Scotti is 179-80 cm barefeet and 182 with shoes on, i think.

Then I wanted to say I've seen immature and did not seem to drop that much, and Luke seemed to Raoul Bova at the same level, perhaps they removed 2 cm.

Bruce Willis never been 182 cm! A friend of mine met him in summer 2007, when he comes in Costa Smeralda and they were at the same level (my friend is 179 cm, strong). Parhaps, when Mamun met him he wore lifts.
I think Elle Macpherson is 180 cm, max 181 cm because:
A) he looked not much taller (around 2-3 cm max) than Claudia Schiffer, who claims to be 180 cm but the truth is that she's in the 178-79 cm range.
B) if you she South Kensington, she always looked shorter than Morelli, also with heels on, and the italian actor is in the 6 ft 2-3 in range, max.
I think Columbro is 175 cm now, he was less than 5 cm shorter than a strong 179 cm Gerry Scotti...
ANDREA[ITA] said on 21/Dec/11
Edoardo Costa looked much taller than Bruce Willis, he looked 2-3 cms taller than Alessandro Preziosi, who's about 184-185! Garko is about 2 cms taller than Edoardo Costa, surely in the 188-189 range! Staffelli is the same, 188-189! Ibra looks no more than 5 cms shorter than Isaksson, he's surely 194-196 range! Giampaolo Morelli is no way near 6'4, neither 6'3 in my opinion! He looks tall but he's always looked just a legit 6'2 to me! There are some photos of him and Scamarcio and the difference between them is less than that between Kim Rossi Stuart and Scamarcio! He's just 187-188, in the pic of him and Elle Macpherson, she probably is wearing ballerina and he's wearing shoes so he's got shoe advantage! Marco Columbro is just 173-174!
maio said on 20/Dec/11
Error: Giampaolo Morelli is less than 6'4, i'd say. I think he could be in the 190-92 cm max...i think 6 ft 3 in/191 cm is perfect for him, considering in the fiction 'Baciati dall'Amore' he's about 12 cm taller than Marco Columbro, who is in 178-79 cm range. I think also Elle Macpherson is less than 6 ft 0 in: considering in 'South Kensington' she played with Giampaolo Morelli and she always looked shorter, also with (Click Here), i think she's not taller than 5 ft 11 in/180 cm, max 181 cm.
maio said on 20/Dec/11
i don't think rob is an encyclopedia. Edoardo Costa is 186 cm, Gabriel Garko is in the 187 cm range, Staffelli the same, max 188 cm! Scotti is perhaps shorter than 180 cm, because he's shorter than De Sica and i've met Christian and he was in the 181 cm range, so Gerry could be 179 cm, i'd say: i think 190 cm for Gigi is the best choice.
Ibrahimovic is no more than 194 cm, but i think he's in the 6 ft 4 in/193 cm range. He was around 5-6 cm shorter than Andreas Isaksson, Swedish goalkeeper, who's 199 cm (Personally i'd say 6 ft 4.25 in for him barefeet and 6 ft 5 in with normal shoes on).
Cristiano Ronaldo is 6 ft 0.75 in/185 cm, you're right, he's 0,5 in/1,25 cm shorter than a legit 6 ft 1.25 in/186 cm Kakà.

hey master, look at this pic: Click Here here giletti is a good 5 cm shorter than Baudo. Pippo Baudo was 6 ft 1 in/185 cm at his peak, how he said, but today he's around 181-82 cm, max (he's a very very little over Fiorello who's not over 5 ft 11 in). Staffelli never looks 189 cm, how you said. He was shorter than Buffon who was listed 188 cm when played for Parma FC and now 191 cm, but i think he could be at least 6 ft 2.75 in/190 cm. Staffelli could be max 188 cm, but i think he's 187 cm, no more.
If you want belive Giletti is 180 cm and Staffelli 189 cm this is your choice, but the truth is different.
About Ibra? well, look at this pic (Click Here): there isn't any deslevel in the field, Zlatan is straight while Marco not. The diffrent in the pic is very very tiny...mmm, i think 6 ft 5 in/196 cm for him is a bit absurd...
ANDREA[ITA] said on 18/Dec/11
You should check the article of heels on this site! You really dunno height differences, sorry to say but thats it! The pic with Cristian De Sica isnt fair to judge, they look very similar! He's for sure about 180, never appears short! Rosolino claimed 192, he doesnt look full 192 but about 190 for sure! Rob, the editor of this site, said Ibrahimovic must be in the 6'4.5-6'5 range and i trust him, cause he looks it! Materazzi appeared shorter than Staffelli, dunno how. I agree about Cristina Chiabotto!
maio said on 18/Dec/11
Giletti is 180-81, are you joking? He's shorter than 181 cm Christian de Sica (Click Here). He's 178 cm, no more, so 180 cm with shoes on? You said Milly Carlucci is 171 cm barefoot? With a good 4-5 heels on she was more than 10 cms shorter than a real Christian Vieri, who's 185-6 cm, max! The heels of Maria were very tall, they gave her a good 4 in/10 cm, so she's 192 with heels on (max 193), how i said, so 182 cm barefeet.
Don't give the fault to the floor: Staffelli and Costantino were at the same level, they were around 20 cm distance from each other. Vitagliano is a little over Staffelli, perhaps Costantino is 189 cm (yeah, it's possible). Corona is not over 182 cm, Rosolino is 6 ft 2 in/188 cm, max 6 ft 2.25 in. Ibrahimovic has the same height as Patrick Vieira and Marco Materazzi.
Cristina Chiabotto is 5 ft 11.5 in/182 cm yeah, but early in the morning: for the most of the day she's
5 ft 11 in/180 cm, no more.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 18/Dec/11
Maio, there's something you dunno and i already told you... 12 cms heels dont really give 12 cms! they give more like 8-9 cms max over barefoot height! Giletti is, in my opinion, in the 180-181 range and 183 with shoes! Maria Perrusi actually is about 11 cms taller than him, so about 194 in heels, subtract 8-9 cms and she's actually 185-186, as i said! Cristina Chiabotto is actually 180-182 no more! I saw the video of Staffelli with Costantino Vitagliano and since we cannot see the ground we cannot say anything... Maybe Costantino is on higher level, in fact in the first part of the video Staffelli looks taller! Then he has that cap that makes him look taller. Anyway, they must be very similar in height, 188 for Costantino, 188-189 for Staffelli! Garko was the same of Staffelli, 188-189, he looks all of that! Yeah Corona could be only 182-183 but i dont think hes any less! Rosolino appeared taller than Michael Phelps, who gets listed at 6'4 but is more like 6'2-6'3 range... 6'3 is right for Rosolino! Magic Johnson was never 203... He was 200-201 at peak, today he could be 199-200 but no less! Ibrahimovic is no less than 6'4.5! 6'5 is about right, he always looks huge on the field!
maio said on 17/Dec/11
PS: look at this pic: Click Here Ibra has the same height as Patrick Vieira, who's listed 192 cm. Vieira is a REAL and STRONG 192 cm because there's not a big diffrence between him and Thierry Henry, who's 6 ft 2 in/188 cm. So, 192-3 cm is perfect for Ibra. Nowadays, i think Magic is less than 6 ft 7 in/201 cm. I think he was 203 cm at his peak (1 in less than Larry Bird) and 6 ft 6 in/198 cm nowadays. I saw the pic, and i think Magic had a bad posture while Zlatan was a bit straighter than Johnson and he was closer to the camera.
maio said on 17/Dec/11
hey andrea, look this video (Click Here). Maria Perrusi wore a good 12 cm heels, and she's around 13 cm higher than Giletti. Now, i know that Giletti is shorter than 180 cm because i saw him and he's at least 178 cm. Now, considering Giletti is 180 cm with shoes on, She's 193 cm with heels: 182 cm is right for her (how she claimed). I repeat you if she's 186 cm with heels on she may be 199 cm (?!?!) it's to much for her...
maio said on 17/Dec/11
sory, Staffelli is shorter than Vitagliano, so how can be 189 cm? Look (Click Here).
Staffelli is 6 ft 1.75 in/187 cm, no more.
About Corona, don't forget he was wearing high shoes and he was very straight, while Ruffini not! Corona is at least 182 cm, no more. I saw him.
If Maria Perrusi is 5 ft 11.75 in/182 cm (how i said) and she wore a good 12 cm heels i think the distance is right: E.Filiberto is 178 cm, max 180 cm, and she has a good 12 cm distance! i don't think she's 2 meters in the picture...
PS: don't forget in the video with Rosolino, who's 188 cm for me, Maria had a floor advantage in the swimming pool beat, and there wasn't a good prospective from the camera.
I repeat: one my friend met Maria and told me she was shorter than him, who's a strong 6 ft 1 in.
Perhaps Kessisoglu is 182-183 cm and Luca 175 cm, how he said in Immaturi. Tyson 180 cm? Mike is max 178 cm (how rob said), perhaps a little less. Staffelli and Borriello were in he same range in more than an occasion.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 16/Dec/11
maio i dont wanna offend you but you're very bad at judgin height! You first say Staffelli is max 187, then you say Checco Zalone is 177! Checco was dwarfed by Staffelli, i thought he was 170 when i saw them together! But Checco is actually around 5'8, Staffelli is way taller, 188-189, no less! Paolo, that you say to be 187 was at least 5 cms shorter than Gabriel Garko, that you say to be 186! ahahha Staffelli and Garko are the same, strong 188-189! Paolo Ruffini was at least 6-7 cms shorter than Fabrizio Corona, but the last one had a bit shoe advantage so they were more like 5-6 cms! I think too that Ruffini is 179, Corona is 184, not sure about 185! Gianmarco Tognazzi claimed to be 176! Costantino Vitagliano is right, he's about 6'2, maybe a little more. The photos you posted of Boldi and De sica clearly shows legit 10 cms! No more! In the first one De Sica is closer to the camera! Ibrahimovic was listed even at 192, you're right but he's clearly taller than that! 6'5 is right, he always look huge! I saw a pic of him with basketball player Magic Johnson and he looked no more than 2 inches shorter (Magic is about 6'7). Milly Carlucci is no less than 171-172 barefoot because with heels she was a bit taller than Mike Tyson in shoes, who is about 180-181! Click Here here she's dwarfed by Maria Perrusi, 185-186 is right for her! and just to let you know, 10-12 cms heels dont really give that height! The vid of Staffelli with Borriello is deceiving because you cant see the floor, Borriello stands very straight and he probably has floor advantage!

10 cm? i think more. Look at these pics (Click Here Click Here). 13 cm is ok...Ibrahimovic is not over 197, perhaps you're not intrested by football: when he played for Barca he was listed 194 cm and also in the Milan web, but in other webs he was listed 192 cm...i think the truth is in the middle, so 193 is ok for him...197 is absurd, he's shorter than Van der Sar, who's 197 cm...Perrusi is 182! look this pic (Click Here). Considering E.Filiberto is not over than 180 cm and she wear a good 8-10 cm heels, i don't think here she's 195-196 cm...i'm not sure Rosolino he's 190 cm...i don't think swimmers are always measured...
Staffelli is not over than 6 ft 1.75 in/187 cm! Look the video with Borriello: there, Borriello isn't much shorter than the journalist and Marco is a strong and real 5 ft 11 in/180 cm! i know because i saw him in Riccione three years ago...
ANDREA[ITA] said on 14/Dec/11
Yeah, Christian De Sica is surely in the 180-181 range today... i agree with you! Boldi never looks more than 10 cms shorter in my opinion! In fact i said that today he's gotta be around 171... I saw a photo of him with an american actor, listed here at 5'10 and they looked the same! Ibrahimovic is surely taller than 6'4, i dont think he's less than 6'5 (he claimed 197)! 6'5 is a safe bet, right rob? About Cristina Chiabotto, you said its very hard to grow after 18 for a woman... Right! Hard, but not impossible! Anyway i dont think she grew 4 cms! Now she claims to be 184, no way! She could be 181-182 but no more! Her fiancí¨, Fabio Fulco, claims to be 188 and he looks all of it and she never is taller than him, in heels! I think 180-181 is right for her. Maria Perrusi actually claimed 182 but all her friends said that she's actually 186 but said 182 because that's too tall for a miss. She's at least 10-11 cms taller than Federica Pellegrini, that you said to be 176! Anyway i think she's more like 173-174 and Maria Perrusi about 185-186! I remembered a video of her with Massimiliano Rosolino, where they both were barefoot and the difference wasnt that much! Rosolino claims to be 192, even if i think he's more like 190... Giurato always look very tall! 190 is not impossible at all! Gabriel Garko always looks very tall and towers over everyone in the movies. He's no less than 188! And... Chiambretti is really short but i dont think he's under 160! Maybe he's just 160-161...

PS: @ANDREA[ITA]
Don't remember women in TV always wear heels. If really Maria Perrusi is 186 cm with a good 10-12 cm heels (averagely in television) she should be around two meters!!! i think she's tall but she never looks over 192 cm with heels on, so 182 for her it's perfect, 186 cm it's hard to belive for me.

@ANDREA[ITA]
it's incredible you haven't still understood the culture of our contry: IN ITALY EVERYBODY CLAIMS TO BE TALLER THAN THEIR REALLY ARE.
In 2005 i met Christian De Sica and he was in the 180-1 cm range: considering he was 54 i think he probably lost 1-2 max cm from his best height so 183 cm are right for him (at his peak). Boldi looks always from 10 to 13 cm shorter than De Sica so max for him 5'7, no more.
Staffelli is a good 5-7 cm shorter than a strong 6 ft 4 in/193 cm Zlatan Ibrahimovic. 180 cm for Conti is laughing. Cristina Chiabotto in 2004 at her first advent (Miss Italia 2004) claims to be 180 cm: IT'S VERY HARD that a woman grow 2-4 cm after 18 years old...180 cm for her is the best, no more (without shoes she was around 7 cm shorter than Frizzi, who's 184-85 cm).
One my friend met last year Maria Perrusi: he's 6'1 and told me she was shorter than him; considering she claims to be 5 ft 11.5 in/182 cm i think she told the truth (i don't know who said she's 186 cm).
190-91 cm for Giurato is absurd...Garko is in the 185-87 cm, trust me...he's not over.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 12/Dec/11
Maio, you got a lot of wrong heights...
Alessandro Preziosi claimed 187, but i think you're right!
I saw him with Edoardo Costa and he looked 2-3 cms shorter! Edoardo Costa is nothing less than 187! He's 2 cms shorter than Gabriel Garko, who is 189! He never claimed 190 but he always said to be 190!
Carlo Conti at 169 seems a bit low: he claimed to be 180 but im sure he doesnt go over 173, because he always looks shortish!
Massimo Boldi is not short (165) at all! At peak he was around 173-174, today he's probably no more than 171! Maria Grazia Cucinotta was around 15 cms shorter than Gabriel Garko, in some photos, so she's gotta be 173-174 for sure! Cristina Chiabotto is maybe 182, but no more! Federica Pellegrini is around 174! Carlo Verdone today isnt over 173! Massimo Giletti could be 5'11, even a strong one but im not sure! Maria Perrusi claimed 182, but they all said that she's actually 186 and i think it could be true because she's really really tall! Kim Rossi Stuart is around 6'-1.75/6'2 for sure, he looks very tall and he has at least 14-15 cms shorter on 173 scamarcio! Stefano Accorsi looked much shorter than Gabriel Garko: he's no more than 174! Benigni looked max 12 cms shorter than Fiorello, he' 168-169 for sure! Luca Giurato is around 190-191! Michelle Hunziker is 5'6! Nina Senicar is no more than 171! Luca Argentero could be 6'! Jovanotti looked just a bit taller than Fiorello, but he slouches lots of time! He could be 190, but no more! He was just 1-2 cms taller than 188-189 Valerio Staffelli!

189 cm? i hope you're joking...staffelli is no more than 187 cm! look this pic (Click Here)! He's has the same height as Krasic (185 cm), perhaps a bit more. 187 cm is fair for him! no more! Chiambretti is less than 160 cm: one my friend met him in Milan and took a picture with him...He's 160 cm and he was taller, so 156-58 max is perfect for him. Garko claims to be 188 cm but i don't belive him! He's 185-6 max...You know in italy the most of people declare to be taller than they really are. I met Corona in Riccione and he was around 5'11/180 cm, no more! You must consider he always wear thick shoes...Fiorello is not over 180 cm!

maio valerio staffelli looked around the same heights as gabriel garko! maybe a bit taller! I dont think garko is any less than 6'2! IMO staffelli is about 6'2.5! he's also much taller than fiorello! piero chiambretti at 156 is a bit low, dont you think so? he claimed 166 if im not wrong! he clearly is not that height because he always looks way shorter but 156 is too low! He could be a bit more than 160, like 162-163! Corona looks taller than 180, like 183-185!

Rob, the strange thing is that he didnt look shorter than Gerard Butler...
ANDREA[ITA] said on 4/Nov/11
ok... Rob, here there is him with italian referee Roberto Rosetti (the first on the right) who is listed at 190! Click Here
I see more than only 9 cms! :)
ANDREA[ITA] said on 3/Nov/11
Rob, you say 5.5 inches but i see more... and he's not even standing straight! Downgrade Bova, dont you think i saw more material than you about him? (I'm italian)
[Editor Rob: I'd need to find more on him to see if he appears smaller.]
ANDREA[ITA] said on 3/Nov/11
Rob, the guy on the right is luca toni and claimed to be once 195 and once he said 193! I think 193 is his lowest, so hes 6'4.25! How difference there is between him and raoul bova (on his left)? Click Here you think these are only 5 inches? No shoe difference!
[Editor Rob: possibly 5.5 inches, it's hard to say with a small photo.]
LUCA (ITALIA) said on 6/Apr/11
Rob, i belive that 5-11.25 (1.81 m) for Bova it's too much! I saw him 2-3 years ago in Cortina and i'm agree with Andrea: He's 5'11 (1.80 m) out of bed and 5'10 (1.78 m) in the evening, not more!
Andrea [ITA] said on 6/Mar/11
I think he's nothing more than 180... He's like 178-180 range...
Frankstein said on 18/Feb/11
Yesterday i saw "Immaturi" at the cinema (that movie sucks and I wish I could have my one hour and a half of life back) and in the cast there was Raoul Bova that looked SIGHTLY taller than Luca Bizarri who, in that very movie, texted a girl he is 175. There were a lot of scenes where we can see Raoul and Luca standing straight next to each other and the difference was very very very very very little. 5'10 at most...
luca said on 20/Sep/08

Bova is 1,81.
SHREI LUY said on 2/Jul/08
hi xxx but in your opinion he's taller than 190 cm or maybe shorter (like 188cm)? 5.8 is 175 cm! no 177 cm! dove gli arrivi tu che sei alto 177 cm? poi visto che lavori con lui potresti chiederglielo direttamente! prova a chiedere che sono curioso! ciao
xxx said on 1/Jul/08

ROB/GLENN/SOMEONE? :D
Franco said on 3/Oct/07
the 22nd of September he was invited to CE' POSTA PER TE (program),
he was barely 179-180cm (with shoes) next to Maria De Filippi (in heels).

Raul Bova is 177-178cm barefoot.
dave said on 23/Sep/06
I am italian and I met personally raoul on holiday in 2002 with his family, on the beach without shoes he is surely in the range 181-183
Lex said on 11/Mar/06
I had the onour to meet Bova yesterday in Rome. I am 181 cm and he was tall like me. Now I'm 100% sure of his real height.
Matt said on 13/Nov/05
I'd be very, very surprised if Bova reached the full height of 5'11.25". One of those guys who rounds up, in my humble opinion. Having seen a complete portfolio of his photos, I wouldn't put him at more than 5'10.5". One of those stars who most certainly has short legs.
mask said on 11/Apr/05
Raoul Bova is italian like me and I can confirm he is 181 cm(or 5'11.25") because he tell his height in a lot of tv talk shows
