Giulietta Masina

Masina in the role of Cabiria, 1957 Giulia Anna "Giulietta" Masina (22 February 1921 – 23 March 1994) was an Italian film actress, best known for her performances as Gelsomina in ''La Strada'' (1954) and Cabiria in ''Nights of Cabiria'' (1957) for which she won the Cannes Film Festival Award for Best Actress at the 1957 Cannes Film Festival.

Cinema historian Peter Bondanella described Masina's work as "masterful" and "unforgettable," and Charlie Chaplin, with whose work Masina's is often compared, called her "the actress who moved him most."

Both ''La Strada'' and ''Nights of Cabiria'' won Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film and were described as having been "inspired" by Masina's "humanity." Provided by Wikipedia
