Rosanna Schiaffino
Birth: Nov. 25, 1939
Liguria, Italy
Death: Oct. 17, 2009
Lombardia, Italy

Actress, Model. While gracing numerous magazine covers, she had a roughly 20-year career in European and British films. After winning the beauty contest title of Miss Liguria in her native Italy at age 14, she broke into movies with the 1956 "Roland the Mighty". Her first notable success came with "The Minotaur" (1961) which was distributed internationally; she joined Edward G. Robinson and Kirk Douglas for 1962's "Two Weeks in Another Town", and won acclaim for the 1963 "The Victors", which co-starred George Peppard. Schiaffino's film and photographic appearances continued thru the mid-1970s, with her final silver screen bow coming in 1976's "La ragazza dalle pelle corallo". She essentially faded from view following the 1977 television mini series "Don Giovanni in Sicilia". (bio by: Bob Hufford)
