Ada Colangeli in Campane a martello (1949)
Campane A Martello - Ada Colangeli.jpg

Ada Colangeli was born on 5 March 1913 in Rome, Italy. A ubiquitous presence in Italian cinema of the 1940s and 50s, she specialized in playing simple women such as maids, nuns, gossiping neighbors or peasant women. Though very expressive and sympathetic, she was always relegated to small and usually uncredited roles, though she always made the most of her screen-time and usually crops up in films by highly esteemed directors such as Federico Fellini, Luigi Comencini, Luigi Zampa and especially Alessandro Blasetti, who was also her personal friend. Ada Colangeli vanished from Italian movie screens at the end of the 1950s. She passed away at the age of 78 on 29 February 1992 in Rome.
