Here are the images of Anna Maria Mancuso from the Cinecitta shop, to me she seems like she could be 37 / 69
Agreed!

So... the dark-haired girl in the top pics and the blonde girl in the bottom ones? Is it the same girl in both pics? I'm struggling to recognize her, and even more with finding her among the amazon girls...

I was looking for her in Il raccomandato di ferro (1959), but had a hard time with that one too. Could she be this girl...?

The Toto film is almost certainly her, the character name matches and there are no other roles in the film she really could be. The other film I had to guess as the 2 women are never called by name, but neither is anyone else called by the name IMDb credits her with, but there are very few women in the film, so, assuming she appears, I think that has to be her. They seem to be the same woman to me, the features and profiles seem to match and I think they also match with the images of her found online. I have Gli innamorati so I'll see if I can find her in that.

Not sure if the woman in Il raccomandato di ferro can be the same though.

Do we agree that these 3 are all the same? I think the top and bottom are definitely the same, the one in the centre I'm not so sure

This is Nadia Bianchi in Gli innamorati, it must be her as she's credited with this specific role in the credits. Unfortunately she's never seen in close-up and the images aren't too sharp, but I think she looks to be the same actress as in the other 2 films - however still not certain which Amazon she can be, but 4 is still my favourite.

Top and bottom, yes, but I'm also not entirely sure about the middle pics. Maybe, but can't say for sure...

This is Marinella Gennuso (on the left) in the TV mini series Peppino Girella (1963)

I'm thinking she could possibly be unknown 3. For more comparison, it should be noted that in addition to the titles listed on her IMDb page, Marinella is also credited in another peplum: Giulio Cesare contro i pirati (1962). So that's one to check.

Also, Unknown 7 is Anna Maria Surdo. I don't have any pics to post right at this moment, but I know very well what she looks like from numerous fotoromanzi.
No luck with Giulio Cesare contro i pirati I'm afraid, other than to confirm that she is credited, as the very last credit, so presumably does appear. There are an assortment of women in small roles but none at all that I could see with the chubby cheeks of the girl in your image and our no.3, but as I said all available copies of the film are pretty awful so I may have missed her.

Also credited in Mi permette babbo (1956), but I've no idea who she could be in the movie. I think I officially give up as far as this actress is concerned! :tears_smile:

I'll persevere with her as she seems quite interesting in the roles so far. Unfortunately La zia d’america va a sciare, Sanremo - La grande sfida and Classe di ferro are titles I've searched for previously with no success and La chiamavan Capinera also looks like a lost cause.
