This is Italian silent film actor Bartolomeo Pagano, better known as Maciste.  He legally changed his name after the runaway success of his second film in which he played a character of that single name.  Somewhat to my surprise, he doesn't seem to have had a career as a stongman prior to becoming an actor.  He apparently just happened to have been built like one.  Lucky guy.
