Canghiari, Rossana

Rossana Canghiari in Roma a mano armata (1976)
Roma a mano armata (1976).jpg

Rossana Canghiari is one of the most recognizable Italian generiche, having enjoyed a long career which lasted from at least the late 1950s to the end of the 1990s and which included appearances in every kind of genre, including peplum, crime, horror, western, comedy.

When she was young, in the early 60s, she appeared in a couple of credited roles, but after half of the decade, she was almost never credited. Her particular hairstyle, short and masculine but very fashionable, makes her easily distinguished between the mass of extras.

Her name was identified by an intuition of Johan Melle on January 1, 2009.

THE IDENTIFICATION

I have made a very interesting discovery! She has a small but nice little role in Maladonna (1984), where she is the wife of Giuseppe Marrocco
Maladonna (1984) 1.jpg
Maladonna (1984) 2.jpg

The interesting thing is that Marrocco is credited in this film and it is possible that the unknown darkhaired woman is credited too! In the cast list there is woman named Rossana Canghiari, and it could be her!

In Il vigile (1960) - little but notable role: 3 dialogue scenes with Sordi & De Sica
