Anthony Martignetti

Anthony Martignetti, well known for his part in the famous Prince Spaghetti commercial, has passed away at age 63.

It was 1969 when 12-year-old Martignetti filmed the commercial as the boy running through the neighborhood while his mother (played by Mary Fiumara) yelled out “Anthony! Anthony!” from a window on Powers Court.

He later worked as a court officer in Dedham District Court.

The Martignetti family confirmed the passing in a statement on Facebook:

It is with a heavy and hurting heart that we announce to our family and friends that our brother Anthony J. Martignetti passed away suddenly in his sleep last night. None of us have accepted this yet and I don’t know when we will. RIP little brother, till we meet again, I love you.

  1. He was a friend to all from the neighborhood…Always laughing and happy to see people from the old days. I will miss his annual visits during St. Anthony’s Feast. He took me to see Star Wars way back in the day when it first came out.

    May the Force be with you my friend.
