Luisa Rossi (26 January 1925 23 May 1984) was an Italian actress. She appeared in 25 films between 1941 and 1978.

Born in Milan, Rossi debuted at young age in a significant role in Mario Mattoli's Ho tanta voglia di cantare (1943).[1] In 1945 Rossi obtained a large critical appreciation with Leopold Lindtberg's The Last Chance, but she failed to capitalize on her early success and her following parts were mainly supporting roles in often modest productions.[1]

Unsatisfied with her film career, since mid-1950s Rossi focused her career on television and especially on stage, in which she worked with, among others, Luchino Visconti, Giorgio Strehler and Dario Fo.[1]
