Renato Pozzetto (born 14 July 1940) is an Italian personality. He has performed as an actor, director, stand-up comedian and singer in Italy.


Pozzetto was born into a poor family in Laveno Mombello and grew up in the town of Gemonio (also in the Province of Varese). After graduation he made his debut as a comedian at the Derby Club in Milan.

There in 1964 he and his childhood friend Cochi Ponzoni formed the duo Cochi & Renato. They recorded several successful songs, often written in collaboration with Enzo Jannacci. These songs often had a satirical and/or nonsense style. Their most popular hits include "La canzone intelligente" ("The intelligent song", a satire about songwriting) and "E la vita, la vita". From the mid 70s through the first half of the 90s Pozzetto enjoyed a prolific career in film.

He soon became famous for his trademark pronounced Milanese accent and for his shy and stuttering way of speaking.

Eight-year-old Marco Marinelli is a bedwetter, scolded by his mother (Ottavia Piccolo) and teased by his classmates. On his birthday he finds out that his father (Alessandro Haber), who is facing economic difficulties, hasn't brought him the Lego he was promised. He runs in tears to his room and puts all his heart into wishing he were big and not subject to these indignities. As a result, he bursts through his clothes in the guise of a forty-year-old man (Renato Pozzetto) and seeks refuge in the house of his schoolteacher (Giulia Boschi), who he's secretly in love with. Mentally, he is still eight years old, and it's a puzzle what to do with him, until someone discovers that he has an uncanny rapport with children. Then he becomes a full-time and highly requested babysitter, but shortly after he is suspected of abducting the by-now long-missing child Marco. He then runs out of money, and fakes the kidnapping of himself, but while chased by the police he eventually turns back into the eight-year-old boy.

Silvano and Alfio are mediocre students who manage to snatch away a degree at the university where they both studied medicine with absymal results. After a few years Silvano (now a peddler of beauty products who on the side sells pornographic material and sex toys) meets Alfio again, now running a beauty parlor fueled with the money of his neurotic wife. After a comic mishap with a customer left too long in a sauna machine who has apparently suffered a stroke Silvano, seeing the large country villa where Alfio lives with his family, proposes him to turn it into a dieting-farm where rich customers will pay hefty sums to get rid of excess fat. The operation is run hapazardly with several incidents; in the end Alfio suffers a nervous breakdown and goes catatonic. An English professor of Aesthetics (with which Alfio shares the room in the clinic he's recuperating at) convinces the duo that true beauty lies in generous proportions, as in the works of Tiziano, Giorgione and other famous artists. Alfio and Silvano then convert the villa in a trattoria where the best patrons are the same people who originally visited it for dieting purpouses.

Primo Baffo (Renato Pozzetto) est une sorte de chanteur de cabaret qui amuse les soldats avec ses chansons et ses sketches pendant la guerre. Il fait tout pour éviter d’être enrôlé et partir à la guerre. Mais à la fin de son spectacle, il est amené de force devant le colonel pour la conscription. Il essaie de se faire passer pour un homosexuel mais sans résultat. Arrivé au front, il croise une jeune fille misérable nommée Marianna (Laura Antonelli) lors d’une patrouille dans un village. Il cherche à la séduire et lorsqu’il se trouve déshabillé, elle lui vole tous ses vêtements et effets personnels et s’enfuit avec son complice. Les trois se retrouvent à nouveau quelques jours plus tard et Primo veut se venger. Mais la guerre les rattrape. Après quelques épisodes tragi-comiques au front face aux allemands, Primo et son copain Torno (Aldo Maccione) se cachent dans le grenier d’une masure bientôt occupée par les Uhlans, en terrain conquis. Ils assistent alors, impuissants dans leur cachette, aux derniers outrages que les soldats font subir à Marianna. Mais celle-ci finira par se venger.
