Cristina Airoldi in Lo strano vizio della signora Wardh (1971)
Cristina Airoldi lo strano vizio.jpg

Born Conchita Airoldi, originally from Colombia, she arrived in Italy and started studying theater with the famous playwright, actor and theater director Alessandro Fersen, later becoming a close collaborator of him.[1]

Her little acting career develops mainly in the early seventies. Fascinating, ironic, not very tall but endowed with an energetic beauty and an overwhelming charisma, she made her cinema debut under the pseudonym of Cristina Airoldi in the film Lo strano vizio della signora Wardh (1970) by Sergio Martino, director who wants her also in his following masterpiece I corpi presentano tracce di violenza carnale (1973). But these two interesting performances will not be followed by other noteworthy entries for Conchita.

After a few years of absence from the scene, in the late seventies she returned to the limelight as associate producer of the film Immacolata e Concetta (1979) by Salvatore Piscitelli. Subsequently, as owner of Urania Film - which later became Urania Pictures - she gained considerable experience in film and television production. Among the most successful films she produces, there are: Dellamorte Dellamore (1994) by Michele Soavi, Croce e delizia (1995) by Luciano De Crescenzo, À ma sœur! (2001) by Catherine Breillat, but most of all Arrivederci amore, ciao (2006) by Michele Soavi, maybe the best Italian noir of the decade; following Machan (2008) by Uberto Pasolini and Pasolini (2011) by Abel Ferrara.

Starting with her great role in Lo strano vizio della signora Wardh (1971) as Carol Brandt, the blonde shameless friend of the protagonist, interpreted by Edwige Fenech. Her ironic character is so successful that will be revisited by Paola Quattrini, in the year later, in "Perchè quelle strane gocce di sangue sul corpo di Jennifer?".

She play a moment of greatest suspense in the film, that of the killin in the park. Sequence that will inspire Dario Argento for a similar one in "Quattro mosche di velluto grigio" (1971).

We continue with her second thrilling and probably her best performance in I corpi presentano tracce di violenza carnale (1973) as Carol Peterson, a foreing student at University of Perugia.

Here she's the protagonist of the legendary scene of the murderer in the birch forest. One of the best sequences ever maked by Sergio Martino.

In La cugina (1974). A very brief part in which she plays a maid who tries, unsuccessfully, to seduce Massimo Ranieri. Little remains to be said about this character of her, who is little more than an appearance.

Her last "ciak", when she had been dedicating herself for many years only to the film production, in Caro diario (1993) by Nanni Moretti. The little role (few seconds) is that of an eccentric event organizer in Panarea. Probably it is a part played for a friendship with the director.
