Achille Millo, pseudonym of Achille Scognamillo (October 25, 1922 Rome, Lazio, Italy - October 18, 2006 Rome, Lazio, Italy), was an Italian actor.

After working with Pagnani-Ninchi, the IDI Company, Ricci-Magnani, was hired by Luchino Visconti for a small part in Delitto e castigo and remained alongside the director for two years as assistant.

Safe actor, with a versatile temperament, he did not have great satisfactions from the cinema (apart from Carosello Napoletano, 1953), but he provided remarkable interpretations for the early television, which saw him engaged in prose, in characterizations that went from the seducer to the "bad guy". Among his most important interpretations we can remember Questa mia donna (1958), L'esca (1958), Il borghese gentiluomo (1959).

His theatrical conception underwent a change thanks to the radio, which led him to the discovery of poetry: winner in 1965 of a competition of actors for the best reader of a piece by Dante, he recorded 28 songs of the Divine Comedy.
It was the beginning of an intense radio activity, dotted with about 300 programs dedicated to poetry.
