Ada Crostona

Ada Crostona portrayed in the eighties - pic from Trastevere App

Ada Crostona 700.jpg

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".
