Silvana Pampanini

Actress

Born - 25 September 1925, Rome, Italy
Died - 6 January 2016

Another of Italy's dark-haired, big-busted, full-lipped sex symbols of the 1950s and beyond. Tall, beautiful and faintly reminiscent of Hedy Lamarr, the sumptuous Pampanini didn't quite rise to the class of international fame achieved by Loren and Lollobrigida, both of whom she preceded, but remained popular in her own country over two decades. Her looks and ability quickly propelled her into Italian films in the post-war years: When Love Calls (1947), Snow White and the 7 Thieves (1949), O.K.Nero (1951), Don Juan's Night of Love (1952), A Husband for Anna (1953), Island Sinner (1954), Law of the Streets (1956), Thirst for Love (1959), Guns of the Black Witch (1961), The Gaucho (1964), 3000 Kilometres of Love (1967) and Mazzabubu...Quante Corna Stanno Quaggiu? (1970), her last. She died after complications from an abdominal operation.
