Franca Scagnetti in Morte sospetta di una minorenne (1975)
Morte Sospetta - Franca Scagnetti.jpg

Here we celebrate the most famous generica of all italian cinema: Franca Scagnetti.

Franca was born in Rome on May 17, 1924, and lived all her life in Via Gregorio IX, where she was an housewife. She entered in the world of entertainment in the past forty years as an extra. She often participates with very modest roles, more often with a "figurazione speciale" (an extra with some lines of speech), in all to over a hundred movies. Her characteristic roman sympathy and her abundant figure typical of the middle-aged woman of popular extraction, contribute to increase her fame to the point that over the years has become more important than many actresses of her period.

After thirty years of career, in the late nineties, also forgotten by relatives and in serious economic difficulties, she appeared as a guest in an episode of the Rai TV program "Domenica In": interviewed by Mara Venier, she asked, in tears, "to give her a part" for her own subsistence. The late revaluation of her spontaneous art and the affection for her figure, takes place with some participation in the fictions Casa Vianello (1998), Don Matteo (1999) and Un medico in famiglia (1998-99). She left on 1st November 1999, a few months after her last movie, Regina Coeli (1999).

Re: Franca Scagnetti

Post by Johan Melle » 03/09/2018, 21:43

Franca shows up everywhere, so we should be able to fill one page after another with pics from her movies, but let's start with these roles:

I familiari delle vittime non saranno avvertiti (1972) .... Don Faiena's maid (uncredited)
Crime Boss - Franca Scagnetti.jpg

Anche gli angeli mangiano fagioli (1973) .... Mourning woman (uncredited)
Anche Gli Angeli - Franca Scagnetti.jpg

Suspiria (1977) .... Cook at the dance academy (credited)

Suspiria - Franca Scagnetti2.jpg
A small role but very memorable. The creepy scene with her and the little boy is one of the most inconic moments from this famous cult horror movie.


Scusi, lei è normale? (1979) .... Landlady (uncredited)
Scusi - Franca Scagnetti.jpg

Una vacanza del cactus (1981) .... Cook (credited)
Vacanza Del Cactus - Franca Scagnetti.jpg

Turno di notte (1987) (TV series) - episode 2: "Heavy metal" .... Neighbor (uncredited)
Turno Di Notte - Franca Scagnetti.jpg

And finally the biggest surprise of all. I never expected to find Franca Scagnetti in a Norwegian(!) production, but here she is (uncredited) in the Norwegian TV mini series Jenny (1983) with Liv Ullmann, shot on location in Italy! She's a woman on the train who has fallen asleep.
