RIP Francesca Romana Coluzzi
Italian actress Francesca Romana Coluzzi passed away on July 15th in her home in Rome of lung cancer, she was 66. Although a fine dramatic actress, Coluzzi, as she was called by everyone including her daughters, will have her named eternally linked to the image she left in her comedy sex films of the ‘70s and ‘80s. In complete contrast to this image she created the Rome Teatrale Labobatory in 1985, which soon became nell'Associazione Culturale Minestrone d’Arte the Association of Art Cultural Minestrone which she continued to head until her death. Francesca appeared in two Euro-westerns “Sting of the West” (1972) and “Karate, Fists and Beans” (1973).
