Lamberto Maggiorani (28 August 1909 in Rome – 22 April 1983 in Rome) was an Italian actor notable for his portrayal of Antonio Ricci in Bicycle Thieves.

He was a factory worker (he worked as a turner) and non-professional actor at the time he was cast in this film.[1] After he became famous by his performance in Bicycle Thieves, he also found himself being unemployed and this forced him to become a full-time actor.[citation needed]
