Actress and aviator. Born Rosa Margarita Rossi Hoffman. She was dedicated to acting on stage in Vienna (Austria) besides being an actress in several feature films under the seal of the German UFA. In 1928, at age 23 in Venice, she met the writer and millionaire Raúl Barón Biza whom he married in the Cathedral of San Marcos, 28 August 1930. So she abandoned her acting career to settle in Argentina. At the request of her husband, she faced a new passion that bound them both even more: the aviation. They conducted a connecting flight between Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro after a raid by 14 Argentine capitals. She left Buenos Aires on the plane Chingolo I and after two emergency landings in Santiago del Estero and Jujuy, she followed with another two-seater, the Chingolo II. In the town of Marayes, in the province of San Juan, she suffers another accident where she died. To remember always, her husband had built a huge mausoleum with a height of 82 meters in the town of "Los Cerrillos". On the gravestone epitaph reads: "Traveler, pays homage with your silent to the woman who, at her audacity, she wanted to get to the eagles"
