Life and career[edit]

Born in Turin, the son of the stage actors Antonio and Rosa Rosaz, at young age Toniolo debuted on stage in supporting roles.[1] He later worked on radio, and in the mid-1930s he started appearing in films, usually in character roles.[1]

After the Second World War, and following his role as leading actor in Ferruccio Cerio's Posto di blocco, Toniolo also started working as a dubber, and since 1954 he was also pretty active in television dramas.[1] He was sometimes credited as Edward Douglas.[1]
