Italian actress who appeared both in movies and on stage.
Her earliest work was as a stage actress. She was very young when she acted in an art company, but success came with the movies Gli Italiani si voltano and La Spiaggia. She won the Golden Grolla award for Le soldatesse. She performed on stage in several plays at the Arlecchino Theater (now Flaiano), from Girotondo by Schnitzler and Per un amore a Roma by Patti to Arialda by Testori and directed by Luchino Visconti.
In the 1960s she met director Franco Enriquez and left her husband, Aldo Moriconi, for him. After Enriquez's death she was the partner of Vittorio Spiga, a journalist from Bologna, and at her death he was at her bedside.
The president of the Italian Republic, Oscar Luigi Scalfaro, nominated her Great Master of the Republic. In 2000 she was the voice for the Pope's comments during the Via Crucis. In 1999 she received the Renato Simoni award. She worked until the end of her life, in spite of a serious illness (bone cancer), but on 7 June 2005 she was forced to stop her theatre tour with Ibsen's Ghosts (Gli Spettri). She died on 15 June that year.
