Profile Bio Text
Valli was born in Pula, Istria, Italy (now Croatia), to parents who both had mixed ancestry. Her paternal grandfather was Luigi Altenburger, an Austrian-Italian from Trento and her paternal grandmother was Elisa Tomasi from Trento, a cousin of Ettore Tolomei. Valli`s mother, Silvia Oberecker della Martina, was the daughter of the German-Austrian Felix Oberecker from Laibach (now Ljubljana, Slovenia), her mother was Virginia della Martina from Pola, Istria (then part of Austria-Hungary). Valli`s maternal granduncle, Rodolfo, was a close friend of Gabriele d`Annunzio. Valli was christened Alida Maria Laura Altenburger, Baroness von Marckenstein und Frauenberg of the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation. At fifteen, she went to Rome, where she attended the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia, a school for film actors and directors. At that time, she lived with her uncle Ettore Tolomei. Valli started her movie career in 1934, in Il cappello a tre punte (The Three Cornered Hat). Her first big success came with the movie Mille lire al mese. After many roles in a large number of comedies, she earned her success as dramatic actress in Piccolo mondo antico (1941), directed by Mario Soldati. During the Second World War, she starred in many movies, like Stasera niente di nuovo (1942) and Noi Vivi - Addio Kira! (1943) (based on Ayn Rand`s novel, We the Living) and became a movie star. Valli had a career in English language films through David Selznick, who signed her to a contract, thinking that he had found a second Ingrid Bergman. In Hollywood, she performed in several movies: she was the murder suspect Maddalena Paradine in Alfred Hitchcock`s The Paradine Case (1947), and the mysterious Czech refugee wanted by the Russians in post-war Vienna in Carol Reed`s The Third Man (1949). But her foreign experience was not a great success due to the financial problems of Selznick`s production company.

In Hollywood, she performed in several movies: she was the murder suspect Maddalena Paradine in Alfred Hitchcock`s The Paradine Case (1947), and the mysterious Czech refugee wanted by the Russians in post-war Vienna in Carol Reed`s The Third Man (1949). But her foreign experience was not a great success due to the financial problems of Selznick`s production company. In 1959, she appeared in Georges Franju`s horror masterpiece Les Yeux sans visage (Eyes Without a Face). From the 1960s, she worked in several pictures with famous directors, like Pier Paolo Pasolini (Edipo re, Oedipus Rex, 1967), Bernardo Bertolucci (La strategia del ragno, 1972; Novecento, 1976), and Dario Argento (Suspiria, 1977). Her final movie role was in Semana Santa (2002), with Mira Sorvino. In Italy, she was also well-known for her stage appearances in such plays as Ibsen`s Rosmersholm; Pirandello`s Henry IV; John Osborne`s Epitaph for George Dillon; and Arthur Miller`s A View from the Bridge. Valli`s movie career suffered as a result of the infamous Wilma Montesi scandal, in which her lover and jazz musician Piero Piccioni (the son of the Italian Minister of Foreign Affairs) was involved. Montesi was a fashion model. Her lifeless body was found on a public beach near Ostia; prolonged investigations resulted, involving sensational allegations of drug and sex orgies in Roman society. The accusation of Piccioni, of Ugo Montagna, and of Maurizio d`Assia (Moritz von Hessen, the son of Princess Mafalda di Savoia) were a major part of the scandal. Subsequently they were absolved from the accusations. The scandal inspired Federico Fellini`s 1960 film La Dolce Vita. Alida Valli had two sons with her husband Oscar de Mejo: Carlo de Mejo, born in Rome (has a son Pier Paolo de Mejo) and Larry de Mejo, born in Los Angeles, now living in Rochester (has four children in the US). Valli`s death at her home on 22 April 2006, was announced by the office of the mayor of Rome, Walter Veltroni, whose statement read, "The Italian cinema has lost one of its most intense and striking faces". Another official statement by the Italian President Carlo Azeglio Ciampi read, "La scomparsa di Alida Valli è una grave perdita per il cinema, il teatro e la cultura italiana". Valli was buried at Rome`s Verano Cemetery.

Wiki Bio Text
==Alida Valli== (31 May 1921 – 22 April 2006), sometimes simply credited as [[Valli]], stage name of [[Baroness Alida Maria Laura Altenburger von Marckenstein u. Frauenberg]], was an Italian actress who appeared in more than 100 films, including [[Mario Soldati]]'s [[Piccolo mondo antico]], [[Alfred Hitchcock]]'s [[The Paradine Case]], [[Carol Reed]]'s [[The Third Man]], [[Michelangelo Antonioni]]'s [[Il Grido]], [[Luchino Visconti]]'s [[Senso]], [[Bernardo Bertolucci]]'s 1900 and [[Dario Argento]]'s [[Suspiria]]. ===Born=== May 31, 1921 in Pola, Istria, Italy [now Pula, Istria, Croatia] ===Died April 22, 2006 in Rome, Lazio, Italy ===Birth Name=== Alida Maria Laura von Altenburger ===Height=== 5' 5" (1.65 m) ===Mini Bio (1)=== Enigmatic, dark-haired foreign import Alida Valli was dubbed "The Next Garbo" but didn't live up to postwar expectations despite her cool, patrician beauty, remote allure and significant talent. Born in Pola, Italy (now Croatia), on May 3, 1921, the daughter of a Tridentine journalist and professor and an Istrian homemaker, she studied dramatics as a teen at the Motion Picture Academy of Rome and Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia before snaring bit roles in such films as Three Cornered Hat (1935) ["The Three-Cornered Hat"] and The Two Sergeants (1936) ["The Two Sergeants"]. She made a name for herself in Italy during WWII playing the title role in Manon Lescaut (1940), won a Venice Film Festival award for Piccolo mondo antico (1941) ["Little Old World"] and was a critical sensation in We the Living (1942) ["We the Living"]. She briefly abandoned her career, however, in 1943, refusing to appear in what she considered fascist propaganda, and was forced into hiding. The next year she married surrealist painter/pianist/composer Oscar De Mejo. They had two children, and one of them, Carlo De Mejo, became an actor. She divorced in 1955, then she came back to Italy, ===Following her potent===, award-winning work in the title role of Eugenie Grandet (1946), she was discovered and contracted by David O. Selznick to play the murder suspect Maddalena Paradine in Alfred Hitchcock's The Paradine Case (1947). She was billed during her Hollywood years simply as "Valli," and Selznick also gave her top femme female billing in Carol Reed's classic film noir The Third Man (1949), but for every successful film--such as the ones previously mentioned--she experienced such failures as The Miracle of the Bells (1948), and audiences stayed away. In 1951 she bid farewell to Hollywood and returned to her beloved Italy. In Europe again, she was sought after by the best directors. Her countess in Luchino Visconti's Senso (1954) was widely heralded, and she moved easily from ingénue to vivid character roles. Later standout films encompassed costume dramas as well as shockers and had her playing everything from baronesses to grandmothers in such films as Eyes Without a Face (1960) ["Eyes Without a Face"], The Gigolo (1960), Oedipus Rex (1967) ["Oedipus Rex"], Tender Dracula, or Confessions of a Blood Drinker (1974), 1900 (1976), Suspiria (1977), Luna (1979), Inferno (1980), Aspern (1982), A Month by the Lake (1995) and, her most recent, Angel of Death (2002). - IMDb Mini Biography By: Gary Brumburgh / gr-home@pacbell.net ===Spouse (1)=== [[Oscar De Mejo]] (1944 - 1952) (divorced) (2 children) ===Trivia (11)=== Her mother, Silvia Obrekar, was born in Pola, Italy (now Croatia). Involved in an infamous drug, sex and murder scandal in 1954. Mother of actor Carlo De Mejo and of Lorenzo De Mejo. Her name Alida means "flies like a bird." Gregory Peck, who worked with Alida in The Paradine Case (1947), said of her, "Not only are her shapes and features perfect: from her eyes radiates an irresistible flashing of love." Voiced the character of "Dr. Constance Petersen" in a 1940s radio broadcast of Alfred Hitchcock's classic, Spellbound (1945). Received a special tribute as part of the Annual Memorial tribute at The 79th Annual Academy Awards (2007). Grandmother of actor-director Pierpaolo De Mejo. She is buried in the Cimitero Monumentale del Verano in Rome. Was engaged to Piero Piccioni in the fifties.
