I too think it must be her and that in Peppino Girella she has a blonde wig.

One more credit for Wanda Brizio in episode 1 of the 1963 TV series La sciarpa. Unfortunately not much help in identifying her unless someone has the series.

and the first mention found for Virginia Quercioli, from 1956. Unfortunately not really clear enough in the image to make an identification. I couldn't work out from the article what the show was called, is it "Giallo in jazz"?

of the 3 other films where Tilde Damiani is credited on IMDb the only title I could find is L'ultima preda del vampiro.

Both IMDb and Wikipedia credit Tilde as playing the role of the creepy housekeeper, Miss Balasz, in the top images. I don't see much resemblance between any of our Amazons, she looks older than even the more mature ones, and I don't think she bears much resemblance to the actress identified on Getty Images as being Tilde either, the lips look fuller and she has pronounced bags under her eyes (the images should date from the same year). It could always be possible that her role in the film has been misidentified. What do others think?

In my opion, this is almost certainly a case of the various L'ultima preda del vampiro actresses being misindentified on IMDb and then spread to Wikipedia.

It should be pointed out that the photo of Tilde Damiani wearing that black hat is from Chiamate 22-22 tenente Sheridan (1960). The character with the hat is a model named Gertie and it is according to ANICA that this role is played by Tilde Damiani. However, ANICA also lists Livia Contardi with playing the role of Catherine, but it is actually Margherita Puratich who plays this role, so the identification of Damiani is not necessarily correct.

Here are some more pictures of Gertie, though they are not terribly good since they're from a low-res copy and she never gets any good close-ups

Chiamate 22-22 - Gertie4.jpg

If Gertie is not Tilde Damiani, then the only other woman she could be is this glamorous blonde

I'm not sure, but I think that at least the profile shots of Unknown 6 look like they match with the girl who plays Gertie...

This one from L'ultima preda del vampiro looks to be a better match with Gertie and the Amazon above I think

She could also maybe be 16, but 16 can't be the same as 6 as they appear in the same scene

Aside from the first shot, I think it really could be her, yes, and I assume there are no better candidates from the vampire film.

I think she's a better match for 6 than 16, but some more input would be welcome.
