Life and career
Born in Milan as Agostina Maria Magnoni, Belli made her debut in 1968 with a minor part in Bandits in Milan, then appeared in supporting roles in several musicarelli, giallo films and horror of Spanish-Italian co-production. She had her first role of weight in Lina Wertmüller's The Seduction of Mimi, then she was chosen by Dino Risi as the beautiful Sara in Scent of a Woman, for which she won a Grolla d'oro, and the ingenuous Marcella of The Career of a Chambermaid, for which she received a special David di Donatello. Together with high profile works, in the seventies Belli lived a season of strong popularity performing in small productions and comedies of dubious value but of great commercial success, then starting from eighties she thinned out her appearances.
She was married to actor Fred Robsahm.
