Franca Scagnetti

Franca Scagnetti in Morte sospetta di una minorenne (1975)

Morte Sospetta - Franca Scagnetti.jpg

Housewife, born in Rome on May 17, 1924, and lived in Via Gregorio IX, she entered in the world of entertainment in the past forty years as an extra. She often participates with very modest roles or as an extra, more often with a "figurazione speciale" (an extra with some lines of speech), in all to over a hundred movies. Her typically roman sympathy and his abundant figure typical of the middle-aged woman of popular extraction, contribute to increase her fame to the point that over the years has become more famous than many actresses of his period much more noble.

After thirty years of career and over a hundred films accredited and not, in the late nineties, also forgotten by relatives and in serious economic difficulties, she appeared as a guest in an episode of the Rai TV program "Domenica In": interviewed by Mara Venier, she asked, in tears, "to give her a part" for her own subsistence. The late revaluation of his spontaneous art takes place with some participation in the fictions Casa Vianello (1997), Don Matteo (1999) and Un medico in famiglia (1999).
She died on 1 November 1999, a few months after his last film, Regina Coeli (1999). [E.L.]

Franca shows up everywhere, so we should be able to fill one page after another with pics from her movies, but let's start with these roles:

I familiari delle vittime non saranno avvertiti (1972) .... Don Faiena's maid (uncredited)
Crime Boss - Franca Scagnetti.jpg

Anche gli angeli mangiano fagioli (1973) .... Mourning woman (uncredited)
Anche Gli Angeli - Franca Scagnetti.jpg

Due cuori, una cappella (1975) .... Neighbor (credited)
Due Cuori - Franca Scagnetti.jpg

Suspiria (1977) .... Cook at the dance academy (credited)
Suspiria - Franca Scagnetti1.jpg
Suspiria - Franca Scagnetti2.jpg
A small role but very memorable. The creepy scene with her and the little boy is one of the most inconic moments from this famous cult horror movie.


Scusi, lei è normale? (1979) .... Landlady (uncredited)
Scusi - Franca Scagnetti.jpg

Una vacanza del cactus (1981) .... Cook (credited)
Vacanza Del Cactus - Franca Scagnetti.jpg

Turno di notte (1987) (TV series) - episode 2: "Heavy metal" .... Neighbor (uncredited)
Turno Di Notte - Franca Scagnetti.jpg

And finally the biggest surprise of all. I never expected to find Franca Scagnetti in a Norwegian(!) production, but here she is (uncredited) in the Norwegian TV mini series Jenny (1983) with Liv Ullmann, shot on location in Italy! She's a woman on the train who has fallen asleep.
