I Teddy boys della canzone (1960) as Audience member at TV broadcast.

She doesn't seem very happy to be there, though being forced to listen to the opera-singing policeman you can't really blame her!

I nipoti di Zorro (1968), as Woman at court and at execution. Hard to be seen, but undoubtedly her.

She is credited in the French-language fotoromanzo Top-Secret Spécial Résistance n. 32: "Au péril de sa vie" (Published December 1970), playing the role of Madame Sophie.

This fotoromanzo serial about resistance fighters during WW2 was made in Italy but was aimed specifically at the French market and was apparently never published in Italy. I don't have the actual fotoromanzo, but I found the online auction where it was sold a while back and, in a stroke of luck, it had some preview pictures that included the cast list as well as a scene featuring our generica where she is addressed with her character name and thereby confirming her identity as Lucia Cavalieri!
