Salvatore "Salvo" Randone (25 September 1906 – 6 March 1991) was an Italian theatrical, television and film actor.

Born in Syracuse, Sicily, Randone debuted on stage in mid-1920s and, after some years in which he played roles of little weight, he became in the fifties one of the most critically appreciated actors in Italian theatre.[1] After a few minor roles in 1940s and 1950s he started in early 1960s a quite prolific film career as character actor;[1] for his performances he was awarded with two Silver Ribbons and a grolla d'oro.[1] Randone appeared in 45 films between 1943 and 1977. He was also very prolific as television actor, starring in some TV-series of great success.[1] He was married to the actress Neda Naldi.
