Birthday: Jun 19, 1932

Birthplace: Cagliari, Sardinia, Italy

Petite, gentle-looking lead of the 1950s discovered while studying in Rome by French director Leonide Mogue who then co-starred her in "Tomorrow Is Too Late" (1950) opposite Vittorio de Sica. She was put under contract by MGM and starred as a soulful Italian war bride in Fred Zinnemann's "Teresa" (1951), but aside from playing Rocky Graziano's wife in "Somebody Up There Likes Me" (1956) and a circus girl in "Merry Andrew" (1958), she subsequently found few other worthy projects. Her emotional entanglements and physical accidents helped put her career into a tailspin and before her death by suicide from barbiturates she appeared in sexploitation and horror films. Married from 1954 to 1959 to Vic Damone. Twin sister of actress Marisa Pavan.
