One-time Italian screen idol Rossano Brazzi was acquitted Monday of arms trafficking charges after a three-month trial in Venice. Brazzi, 71, one of Italy's leading romantic screen actors after World War II with roles in "South Pacific" and "Little Women," was among 22 people acquitted at the trial. Brazzi had been accused of international arms trafficking between 1982 and 1984--charges he consistently insisted were false. Nine co-defendants were found guilty of belonging to a network that supplied weapons and missiles to mercenaries and Middle East countries.
