She made her debut in 1959's Death of a Friend and followed it up in the same year with perhaps her best-known performance, as Sofia in Kapò for which she won the Silver Ribbon for Best Supporting Actress from the Italian National Syndicate of Film Journalists. She had a major role in Caltiki - il mostro immortale the same year as well.
She worked steadily in mainly Italian productions set in her native country and had a main supporting role in Sidney Lumet's 1969 psycho-drama The Appointment. She also appeared in several British television series including The Avengers and Man in a Suitcase. Her last screen appearance was in 1992 and she died of cancer the year after.
