Here is Maria's entry in the Annuario Degli Attori 1977, which is how I was able to identify her:
Maria Mascarielli Annuario Degli Attori 1977.jpg

As mentioned, Maria often appears in the films of Federico Fellini and here she is in Fellini Satyricon (1969) as one the women of the theater group at the start of the film:
Fellini Satyricon - Maria Mascarielli.jpg

She also appears in Fellini - Block notes di un regista (1969) as one of the many women who come to Fellini's office to try to convince him to give her a role in his new film:

Another Fellini role in Il Casanova di Federico Fellini (1976) where Maria appears as a dinner guest:

Casanova - Maria Mascarielli1.jpg
Casanova - Maria Mascarielli2.jpg

And then she re-appears later in Il Casanova in another scene - again as a dinner guest:

Casanova - Maria Mascarielli3.jpg

And I think this is Maria in another Fellini role as a dancing party guest in La città delle donne (1980):

Maria also appears as one of the devil worshippers in Estratto dagli archivi segreti della polizia di una capitale europea (1972)

In the cast list there is a certain Ambra Mascarello credited, and I think this could actually be a credit for Maria.

And here is Maria in a real cult role in Emanuelle e le porno notti (1978) as an old stripper!

But the audience doesn't like her and start throwing vegetables at her! :lol:

It seems that maybe Tinto Brass, too, liked Maria peculiar features, because he used her in a "hot" role in Salon Kitty (1975):

Brass also used Maria in his infamous film Caligola (1979) where she can be seen as a woman at the banquet:

Maria also appears with a blonde wig together with Alvaro Vitali in Pierino colpisce ancora (1980):

And I have now discovered another role for Maria and am happy to inform that she has a very big (but sadly uncredited) role in the famous cult movie Trastevere (1971):

Trastevere - Maria Mascarielli1.jpg
Trastevere - Maria Mascarielli2.jpg
Trastevere - Maria Mascarielli3.jpg
Trastevere - Maria Mascarielli4.jpg

I'm not entirely sure what role she's playing, though. She's clearly a prostitute but also seems to be a close relative of some of the other characters. Usually, I can understand Italian okay, but here everyone speaks in dialect so I couldn't understand anything! Anyway, the film is on YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JW7fHTso3Zk
So maybe someone who understands dialect better than me can say exactly what her role is and if she has a character name.

I'm pretty sure this is Maria at the awards show in The Lonely Lady (1983) - the woman in black on the right
