Scilla Sclanizza Wikipedia
Scilla Sclanizza (1926 – 2006) was an Italian screen and stage actress, who later dedicated her life to educational theatre and puppeteering.
She was named after her birthplace, Scilla in Calabria, south Italy, though her father Umberto Sclanizza, an actor hailing from Venice, brought her up in the north. Her early film roles were usually in films that her actor father was appearing in, such as 'Sei bambine ed il Perseo' ('Perseus and the six children') (1940). Scilla Sclanizza married the great Italian puppeteer Otello Sarzi (1922–2001) and had a son, Mauro Sarzi (born 1947), he also a distinguished artist, continuing a puppeteering tradition going back five generations. Her second marriage was to Mario Verdirosi (1930 - ), also an actor and puppeteer. Sclanizza died in Turin, Italy in 2006.
