Two years later, on her return to Italy, she obtained a scholarship for the experimental center of cinematography and debuted in the cinema at first in small roles. She was then discovered by director Arnold Foa for the stage which hence began a rewarding career in dramatic roles. Marina was the widow of Italy's U.N. Ambassador Umberto La Rocca [1920-2011] whom she married in 1980. Marina appeared in two Euro-westerns: Savage Guns (1971), The Return of Clint the Stranger (1972).
