Mourning in the world of cinema: Daria Nicolodi , former partner of Dario Argento and mother of Asia , passed away at the age of 70 .
She was her daughter who announced her disappearance on her social media by writing: “Rest in peace, beloved mother. Now you can fly free with your great spirit and you won’t have to suffer anymore. I will try to go on for your beloved grandchildren and especially for you who would never want to see me so pained. Even if without you I miss the ground under my feet, and I feel I have lost my only true point of reference. I am close to all those who have known and loved her. I will always be your Aria, Daria ”.
Nicolodi was an atypical figure in the panorama of Italian cinema.Actress and at the same time author of subjects and screenplays, together with her partner of the time, Dario Argento , revolutionized Italian thriller cinema, considered at the time of “Serie B”.
Born in 1950, Daria Nicolodi was born in Florence, but at the end of the sixties she had moved to Rome. In the early seventies, she had an affair with the sculptor Mario Ceroli , from whom her eldest daughter, Anna , was born on 9 June 1972, who disappeared in a car accident on 29 September 1994.
I act under the guidance of Elio Petri in the film The property is no longer a theft and of Carmelo Bene in Salome. Also in the early seventies he participated in some television productions, such as I Nicotera, Without leaving a trace with Rossano Brazzi and Portrait of a Veiled Woman with Nino Castelnuovo.
Her turning point, both in her private and working life, was her romantic relationship and professional partnership with Dario Argento, whom the actress met in 1974 during the casting for the film Profondo Rosso . From their relationship was born, in 1975, the second daughter Asia, who made her grandmother of Anna Lou Castoldi, born from the relationship with Morgan in 2001 and Nicola Giovanni, who arrived in 2008 and is the result of the story with the director Michele Civetta.
Nicolodi participated, as an actress or screenwriter, in all the films directed by Dario Argento from 1975 to 1987: Profondo rosso where I play the journalist Gianna Bezzi, a female character with a determined character, quite unusual for the time, and again Suspiria, Inferno, Darkness, Phenomena, Opera.
Nicolodi’s career continues with other interesting experiences. In 1978 she was the protagonist, next to Gigi Proietti , of the musical show by Luigi Magni La commedia di Gaetanaccio. In 1982 she impersonated Margherita Barezzi, the composer’s first wife, in the television series Verdi.
After her relationship with Argento in 1985, I occasionally participate in some thriller and horror films (Le foto di Gioia, Paganini Horror, La sect), taking advantage of her dark lady aura that characterized her. I also act in some arthouse films, such as Maccheroni by Ettore Scola , alongside Marcello Mastroianni and Jack Lemmon , La fine e nota by Cristina Comencini , The word love exists by Mimmo Calopreste , where she was the mother of Valeria Bruni Tedeschi .
After the loss of her first child Anna in 1994, her apparitions became more and more sporadic.
In 2007 she returned to the cinema, working with his former partner Argento and daughter Asia on the Roman director’s new film, The Third Mother, a sequel to Suspiria and Inferno. In recent years he had decided to devote himself to his family and his grandchildren.
In a recent interview with Io lei Donna she declared: “Acting is a disease that can be cured by acting. And I am healed. That’s okay. Today I spend my days reading and writing and I am a grandmother with a lot of passion. Every actor must necessarily remain a bit of a child and today I transfer all my creativity into my relationship with my beloved grandchildren ”.
