Jessica Rizzo (stage name of Eugenia Valentini; born in Fabriano, April 21, 1964) is an Italian pornographic actress, stage actress and entrepreneur.

Rizzo started her career as singer, performing together with her husband Marco Toto as guitarist.[1][2] In 1989, the couple, who had already starred in some amateur videos with their faces covered by masks, accepted to star in a pornographic film, Giochi bestiali in famiglia. That film, once it was theatrically released, created a stir in their hometown and drew the attention of the press and of the Italian television, launching her career.[1][2][3] She then appeared in numerous other pornographic films (even working with Gerard Damiano),[1] and she founded the company Jessica Rizzo Communications, which produces amateur videos and which she works for both as a director and performer.[2]

Thanks to her success, Rizzo even works as stage actress, and she made her theatrical debut in 1995, in Il nulla by Dario D'Ambrosi.[2][4] In 2003, she was directed by Arnolfo Petri in Albert Camus' Caligula.[5] She also launched her own line of lingerie and perfume.[2] In 2011, Rizzo and her husband were involved in a case of tax evasion, for evading about 16 million Euros.[6]
