Luciana Angiolillo (born 22 December 1925) is a former Italian actress and model sometimes credited as Luciana Angelillo.

Life and career[edit]

Born Luciana Nevi in Rome, Angiolillo started her career as a runway model.[1][2] She made her film debut thanks to the friendship of Ennio Flaiano, who suggested her to the director Luciano Emmer for the role of an upper class lady in Camilla.[2][3] From then she appeared in a number of films, often in stereotypal roles of snobbish bourgeois ladies.[2] Gradually relegated to secondary roles, Angiolillo eventually devoted herself to the direction of a fashion house owned by her.[2]
