The beloved actress attended Silvio Amico Academy of Dramatic Art. She was best known for her work in theater.

Another fan writes, “Condolences, dear Alessandro. Your sister and brother-in-law have accomplished many beautiful memories with their art. Great actors and great people.”

The actress’ father, Vittorio Gassman, was a legendary Italian actor who passed away in the year 2000. The New York Times reported on Gassman’s father,

In a career that lasted more than 50 years, Mr. Gassman was expert in both comic and tragic roles, moving effortlessly from stage to screen while also acting as a director, a producer, a translator of plays and leading man in his own traveling repertory company.

Although he was often disparaging about his years in Hollywood, he wore his fame lightly and was proud of his success in comedy. ”The art of the comic is no less than that of the tragedian,” he said. ”Gordon Craig said that an actor has to be a clown to put himself into another’s shoes.”
