Titina De Filippo, born Annunziata De Filippo (27 March 1898 – 26 December 1963) was an Italian actress and playwright.[2]

She was born in via Dell'Ascensione a Chiaia, Naples, the oldest of three children born from the extramarital relationship between Luisa De Filippo and Eduardo Scarpetta, a well-respected playwright in Naples. The children became known as "Children of the buttons" since their mother was a seamstress to his company: apart from Titina, they include actor Peppino De Filippo and playwright and director Eduardo De Filippo.[2]

Titina De Filippo studied music and learned French as a child. She made her stage debut at the age of seven.[2]
