Adult Film Actress. Born Anna Moana Rosa Pozzi in Genoa, Italy, her father was a nuclear researcher, and the family lived in Spain, Canada, Brazil and Argentina, before returning to Italy. Moana is a Polynesian name meaning "from the sea," which speaks of her parents many travels. After high school, in which she took the scientific course of study, also spending six years of study on the classical guitar in a Conservatory. She decided to make a go of life in Rome, to achieve success, and she began with a small part in the film "Tip Tap" (1981), and in "Verdone" (1982), in which she plays a equally small role of the girlfriend who steps out naked from a shower. It was this role that got her noticed and by 1985, nude photos of her were showing up in a variety of magazines. Over the course of her short life, she made numerous adult films, mostly in Italy. When teamed with Hungarian actress Ilona Staller, the two of them dominated Italian adult films as the perfect pair for the next five years, becoming close friends both on and off the screen. She made her live debut with Ilona in 1986 in a live nightclub show, Diva Futura, in Venice, where she sang, danced, and talked to the audience, becoming an instant hit. Many of her films have been dubbed into English. With Ilona Staller, she founded the Love Party of Italy, which was organized to legalize brothels, encourage better sex education among adults, and to create "love parks" where adults could take love breaks. The mainstream Italian film, "Guardami" was inspired by her true-life story. She died in Lyon, of liver cancer.
