I'm not familiar with this woman but maybe this is her in the TV mini series Quer pasticciaccio brutto de via Merulana (1983) as Tenant in the apartment building?

I'm pretty sure Giovanna plays the mother of Romeo (Franco Castellano) in the TV series Commesse (1999). She's present in two episodes:

First a very short appearance in episode 2: "Roberta"
Commesse Ep 2 - Giovanna Sanfilippo.jpg

Then a much larger role in episode 5: "Romeo"
Commesse Ep 5 - Giovanna Sanfilippo1.jpg

Unfortunately, she was uncredited in both episodes, which is very unfair!
