Born in Florence, niece and daughter of novelists, Occhini started her film career at 19 with the Luciano Emmer's comedy film Terza Liceo with the stage name Isabella Redi, then attended the Accademia d'Arte Drammatica in Rome, graduating in 1957. The same year she back to acting with Mario Monicelli's Il medico e lo stregone, and at the same time she debuted on stage with Luchino Visconti's La ragazza delle smirne and had her first leading role in the Anton Giulio Majano's TV series Jane Eyre.

Occhini obtained her major successes on stage, working several times with Luchino Visconti, then joining the Piccolo Teatro of Naples, where she received large critical appreciation by interpreting classical and contemporary authors. She was also a constant presence of RAI television series, and also starred in many films, but rarely in leading roles.

In 1992 Occhini won the Nastro d'Argento for best supporting role for her performance in Benvenuti in Casa Gori. In 2008 she was awarded Best Actress at the Locarno International Film Festival for her role in Mar Nero. In 2010 she won a David di Donatello for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Loose Cannons; the same year she was awarded with a special Nastro d'Argento for her career.
