Raffaella Carrà, whose real name was Raffaella Maria Roberta Pelloni, died at the age of 78. Actress, showgirl and TV presenter was also known internationally for her songs.
Born in Bologna on June 18, 1943, in 1960 she made her debut in the cinema with the film “The long night of ’43”, by Florestano Vancini. The television success comes in 1970 with the show “Io Agata e tu”. In the same year he joined Corrado Mantoni in “Canzonissima”: the uncovered navel, flaunted in the initials, gives scandal.
In the 1985/1986 season he conducted “Buonasera Raffaella” and in the following one “Domenica In.” From 1992 to 1995 he worked in Spain: on the first TVE channel he hosted “Hola Raffaella”.
He returned to Italy in 1995 with “Carràmba! What a surprise”: the program recorded a sensational audience record. At the beginning of 2021 a film homage to Raffaella’s career was released entitled “Ballo, Ballo”
