Other leading 20th century Otellos would include Giovanni Zenatello, Renato 
Zanelli, Aureliano Pertile, Francesco Merli, Paul Franz, Ivan Ershov, Cesar 
Vezzani, Wolfgang Windgassen, Charles Craig, Giuseppe Giacomini, Vladimir 

AFAIK Vezzani never sang Otello nor did the below mentioned Hans Kaart. I 
heard Charles Craig as Otello and while he was okay I wouldn't call him a 
leading 20th century Otello at all. Missed chances are of course Tucker and 
Corelli but they were smarter than Bergonzi.
Charles Holland sang the role (without any success) and was probably the 
first black singer to undertake the role. Lanza on record sounds much better 
than 50% of the singers mentioned here.

Plus there were tenors who took it on (apparently) creditably enough, the 
likes of Giuseppe Oxilia, Antonio Paoli, Carlos Guichandut, Hans Kaart, 
Renato Francesconi, Zurab Anzhaparidze, the unique (speriam!)  Frank 
Mullings,  Franz Voelker (offstage horses neigh) , Josep Gostic, Vladimir 
Galouzine, James King, Max Lorenz, Pier Mirando Ferraro.
