Ada Crostona

Born in the Roman neighborhood of Trastevere, where she lived all her life (in the pic she's in the Vicolo de' Cinque), Ada Crostona (real name: Ada Passari), began to make movies in 1959 with the classic Nella città l'inferno. Despite the fact that acting was not a profession, for her, she has participated in some films until the early 1980s, as a generica yes, but always with a "figurazione speciale".

Ada also appears in two sequences in Fellini's Roma (1972) as a Roman woman. First she can be glimpsed very briefly among the audience members at the Teatrino della Barafonda
