“I lie here, a beast in my own filth, punished for a life of excess. Let my sentence stand as an admonition to those ruled by appetite.” — Ciacco
- Ciacco appears in the animated film, residing within Cerebus's innards. He claims to have known Dante in life, though Dante doesn't seem to remember him. Nonetheless, Dante is moved by his pleas and absolves him. He is only one of three souls that Dante absolves, the others being his mother and Beatrice.
- In The Inferno, as Dante travels through the third circle of Hell, Ciacco addresses him, and the two have a lengthy conversation.
- He is voiced by Giancarlo Cicconi.
