Life and career[edit]

The daughter of a cloth merchant of Prato and of a German mother, Pamela Villoresi began her artistic career following the acting lessons at the Teatro Metastasio in Prato.[1] In 1975 Giorgio Strehler called her to be part of the theater company he started, Piccolo Teatro di Milano.[1] Simultaneously she achieved a great success with the television drama Marco Visconti[1] and started a continuous career in cinema, in which she frequently had leading roles.

In 1975 she posed nude as cover-girl for Playmen.[2][3] In 1978 she won a Grolla d'oro for her role in Marco Bellocchio's Il gabbiano.[1][4] From 1990 she occasionally was a stage director and a TV-presenter.[1]

In 2010 she ran in the Lazio regional election, supporting the center-right candidate Renata Polverini.[5] She was not elected.[6]
