She co-starred with Dean Martin in 1957's Ten Thousand Bedrooms and with Jerry Lewis in Cinderfella, not long after the Martin and Lewis comedy team parted ways.

Albergetti also appeared in 1955's The Last Command, which starred Sterling Hayden, and had the leading role in the western Duel at Apache Wells in 1957.

In 1959, the 22-year-old Alberghetti played the lead in "The Conchita Vasquez Story" of NBC's Wagon Train. She was cast as part of a gang of Comancheros who intend to attack the wagon train to steal rifles headed to the United States Army. Instead, she decides to leave the Comancheros and move west after she falls in love with scout Flint McCullough, played by Robert Horton. Tragically, as the episode ends, Conchita is killed by a bullet from her own people when they ambush the wagon train.

On March 1, 1961, she appeared as a guest contestant on the television series I've Got A Secret. She guest-starred on The Andy Williams Show on March 28, 1963 and performed on The Hollywood Palace variety program's episode of May 2, 1964.

Alberghetti has toured in many theatrical productions and continues with her popular one-woman cabaret act. She had roles in a pair of 2001 films, The Whole Shebang and Friends & Family.

Her sister, Carla, also became a musical artist who appeared in many stage productions. She eventually became Anna Maria's replacement in her Tony Award-winning role on Broadway. She also had a brother named Gorge.

Alberghetti appeared in television commercials for Good Seasons salad dressing during the 1970s.

She was married to television producer-director Claudio Guzmán from 1964 to 1974.

Alberghetti currently serves on the Artistic Advisory Board of Gulfshore Playhouse, Southwest Florida’s premier professional theatre.
