Ugo Bologna (11 September 1917 – 29 January 1998) was an Italian actor and voice actor.


Born in Milan, the son of a municipal employee and a housewife, in 1936 Bologna started working as a primary school teacher, and in 1939 he attended the course for cadet officers in the former italian city of Pula.[1] A lieutenant during World War II, he was wounded during a battle, and then received a bronze medal for military valor.[1]

In 1950 he decided to give up his teaching profession and devote himself to acting.[1] After enrolling an acting course under Isabella Riva he made his stage debut with the Fantasio Piccoli's company.[1] Even if mostly cast in character roles, Bologna was one of the most active actors in Italian cinema in 1970s and 1980s, usually in comedic roles.[1]

Active as a voice actor, in 1970 Bologna founded in Milan the dubbing company "CDM" (Cooperativa Doppiatori Milanesi).[2]


Bologna died of a heart attack on 29 January 1998 at the age of 80.[3]
