Born in Genoa, Mattei in 1938, Mattei was expelled from all schools of the Regno d'Italia for openly criticizing in her classroom the Racial laws. Graduating in philosophy at the University of Florence in 1944, she was a partisan with the nom de guerre "Partigiana Chicchi". She took part at the killing of philosopher and Fascist minister Giovanni Gentile.

She married Bruno Sanguinetti. Writer Gianfranco Sanguinetti is her son.


In 1957 Mattei was expelled from the Italian Communist Party because of her opposition to Stalinism and to the Togliatti politics. She later became national director of the Italian Women Union (UDI) and introduced the use of mimosa for the Women's Day at the request of Luigi Longo. Mattei felt that the French symbols of IWD, violets and lilies of the valley, were too scarce and expensive to be used in poor, rural Italian areas, so she proposed the mimosa as an alternative.

She died in Lari, Tuscany at 92. She was the last living female member of the Constituent Assembly.
