Madame De Sade.jpg
Emma Druetti, in La moglie è uguale per tutti (1955)
Emma Druetti, an elegant older lady that pops up everywhere in Italian films from the mid 1940s and until the early 1960s, typically in scenes featuring parties, nightclubs, casinos etc, nearly always uncredited. One of her largest and most notable parts is in Non perdiamo la testa (1959), where she plays one of Franca Valeri's friends.

She was identified in December 2020 thanks to her credited roles in Ladri di biciclette (1948) and Giovanne dalle Bande Nere (1956), plus a few additional credits at ANICA. Prior to being identified, she was referred to under the nickname "Madame De Sade" due to her somewhat sadistic-looking smile.

And a very big role for our generica in Non perdiamo la testa (1959) where she appears in many scenes as one of the friends of Beatrice (Franca Valeri)
