Maria De Sisti

Maria De Sisti in Ku Fu? - Dalla Sicilia con furore (1973)

Ku-fu dalla sicilia con furore.JPG

Alias: Maria de Sisti (with de in slowcase).

A huge woman, well over a hundred and fifty kilos of weight: she's one of the "Fellini's creatures", indeed, her career begins with Fellini Satyricon in 1969 and will later be seen in both Roma (1972) and Amarcord (1973), again directed by Fellini.
If Franca Scagnetti represented the Roman populan woman, with her physical abundance, Maria De Sisti is almost a caricature of this figure. Far more impressive than another fat extra, Ada Crostona, her appearance is in itself impressive. Not infrequently, in addition to the role of a simple extra, she also had small parts of speech, played in a natural way, not being an actress by profession.

Always uncredited in movies, Maria De Sisti was identified with the help of the book Fellini's faces.

Reasonably large but uncredited role in Fellini's Roma (1972) as Owner of the guest-house

She also appears briefly in the restaurant scene, eating dinner with her family

A photo of her from the restaurant scene was printed in the book Fellini's Faces, which also credits her by name and which made her identification possible

An unusual "big" role (few minutes and a speach) in Terzo canale - Avventura a Montecarlo (1970) as The wife of the owner of the chicken farm

In a psychedelic dream of the protagonists (a rock band called The Trip) she "makes" an egg!
