Born in the Roman neighborhood of Trastevere, where she lived all her life (in the pic she's in the Vicolo de' Cinque), Ada Crostona (real name: Ada Passari), began to make movies in 1959 with the classic Nella città l'inferno. Despite the fact that acting was not a profession, for her, she has participated in some films until the early 1980s, as a generica yes, but always with a "figurazione speciale".

Ada also appears in two sequences in Fellini's Roma (1972) as a Roman woman. First she can be glimpsed very briefly among the audience members at the Teatrino della Barafonda

And then she is present at the Festa de' Noantri celebration at the end of the film
