María Florencia Bertotti Baleirón (Spanish pronunciation: [maˈɾi.a floˈɾensja βerˈtoti baleiˈɾon]; born 15 March 1983), better known as Florencia Bertotti, is an Argentine actress, singer and producer. She is probably best known for her roles in telenovelas Verano del '98, Son Amores and Floricienta. Bertotti has been nominated for five Martín Fierro Awards, winning two, and for two Clarín Awards, winning one.
Bertotti made her professional debut in 1995, in telenovela Dulce Ana.

In 1998, she appeared in a successful film El Faro, for which she earned Argentine Film Critics Association Award for Best New Actress nomination. Her big breakthrough came with the starring role in the Pol-Ka's telenovela Son Amores.

In 2004, she appeared in telenovela Los pensionados, and then worked on Floricienta with famous producer Cris Morena. Floricienta became a smash hit achieving record ratings in its afternoon slot, moving over 400 licensed products and attracting over 600,000 people for its series of live concerts.

She signed a contract with Endemol to produce and distribute the series worldwide. Niní debuted on Telefe on 7 September 2009.
