Just a little role in 5 donne per l'assassino (1974) as a Marta, the housekeeper
Her son Alessandro is in the movie too, but they do not really interact except from both being present in the funeral scene.

Maria is seen for a few seconds in Fellini's famous Giulietta degli spiriti (1965) as Woman at Bhishma's sitting

As the marquise Gonzaga in Porgi l'altra guancia (1974). A little character cut out for her.

Pulp (1972) as Office manageress. A credited but very brief non-speaking part in the opening sequence of this odd British production.

Galileo (1968) as Old noblewoman at diner table
Credited, but very short appearance in this Italian-Bulgarian (strange!) co-production, played under name Maria Quasimodo.
