This is Margherita Lelli
Lelli Amori.jpg

And here's Nancy Lecchini
Lecchini Amori.jpg

And this is a very familiar 1950s and 60s generico who I think deserves a topic soon. Unfortunately, I've not yet been able to identify him...

Anyway, it's been a long time since I watched this, but is Olga Solbelli's character actually named "Maga"? Just wondering, because 'maga' is the Italian word for sorceress or witch...

I don't think she's called by any name, but she is a sorceress, so I guess I can change it to that
