Rossella Como (29 January 1939 – 20 December 1986) was an Italian actress and television personality.

Life and career[edit]

Born in Rome, Como started her career at just 16 years old as a TV presenter, in the RAI show Primo applauso.[1][2] Shortly later, she made her film debut in a little but critically appreciated role in the Dino Risi's comedy film Poveri ma belli.[1][2]

From then Como appeared with some frequency both as an actress and as a presenter in films and on television, as well as on stage.[1][2] In 1973 she was author and main actress of Roma Amor, a successful stage musical where she alternated Roman folk songs to sonnets of Pier Paolo Pasolini and Trilussa and with which she long toured in Italy and Latin America.[2]

Como died of cancer.[2]
