She has performed in more that 100 theatrical productions and in more than 30 films and was seen recently in La Grande Bellezza of Paolo Sorrentino which won the Academy Aware for Best Foreign Film in 2014.

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]
