Anna Falchi (Italian pronunciation: [ˈanna ˈfalki]; born Anna Kristiina Palomäki on 22 April 1972 in Tampere, Finland) is an Italian-Finnish model and film actress.


Anna Falchi was born Anna Kristiina Palomäki in Tampere, Finland, the daughter of an Italian father Benito (Tito) Falchi and Finnish mother Karina. Anna has a brother Saro and a half brother in Sweden Peter (same father). In 1978, at the age of six, she moved to Italy with her family. She started her career as a model. She first appeared on television in a commercial for an Italian bank in 1992.[1] The ad starred Paolo Villaggio, and was directed by the celebrated Federico Fellini. This helped her launch a film career, starting with Nel continente nero (On the Dark Continent) in 1993.

She appeared in many films since, including the 1994 fantasy movie Desideria e l'Anello del Drago, the 1997 film La principessa e il povero and the 2005 comedy Nessun messaggio in segreteria. She has also been a popular television personality, hosting various specials on Italian television.

She is less known in the English speaking world. Some know her as the lead female in a film called Dellamorte Dellamore, which was released in the U.S. as Cemetery Man.
