After six years she left the Govi's company and moved to Rome, where she joined the Anton Giulio Bragaglia's company Theatre of the Arts. In these years she gained critical appreciation for her versatility in comic and dramatic roles. She later worked on stage with Luchino Visconti, Giorgio Strehler, Luigi Squarzina among others. Also active in films, in TV and radio dramas and series, she retired in 1986 following a sudden heart attack. Volonghi was married to actor Carlo Cataneo.
