In Renato Casaro's artwork '100 years of Film' who are the two people in the bottom right?

The man with the white beard looks like it could be Francis Ford Coppola, or maybe Robert Altman. I've no idea about the other guy though.

Oops sorry I was looking at a different version of the same artwork (the one seen here) , in the example you give there is no guy with a beard.

This site says Gregory Peck & Marcello Mastroianni

Response by poster: Thanks for the link to that site brainmouse. I would disagree though with their belief that it's Gregory Peck and Marcello Mastroianni. It looks nothing like Peck and Mastroianni is elsewhere in the artwork (beside Anita Ekberg - they've identified him as Alain Delon). They're also wrong when they label what is clearly Vilma Banky and Rudolph Valentino as Maureen O'Hara and Douglas Fairbanks Jr.

From his biography page I would say that the guy on the right is the artist, himself. No idea on the bespectacled gent.
