Happy Birthday Maria Pia Conte
Maria Pia Conte was born Maria Pia Vaccarezza on March 10, 1944 in Genoa, Liguria, Italy. She began her film career in 1954 at the age of 10. Later in the 1960s she was usually cast as an ingénue. She appeared in several of the B level Spaghetti westerns such as “$5.00 for Ringo”, “Dynamite Jim”, “The Buzzards and Crows will Dig Your Grave”. She married actor Giuseppe Rinaldi during this time and she has a daughter Francesca who is also and actress. She apparently retired from acting in the late 1970s. Today we wish her a happy 65th birthday.
