Life and career
Gloria Guida was born in Merano, Trentino-Alto Adige, to a family of Emilia Romagna origin. She moved with her family to Bologna as a child. She first began a singing career, starting in her father's dancing place on the Romagna coast. Then she took up modeling, becoming Miss Teenage Italia in 1974.
Guida subsequently went on to star in many sexy comedies. Two of her early films, La ragazzina (Monika in English-language release) and La minorenne, both shot in the summer of 1974, are stories of young female characters discovering their sexuality. She made her real breakthrough in 1975 with La liceale (Teasers). Another film of particular success was Avere vent'anni ("To Be Twenty") in 1978, where she starred with Lilli Carati.
In 1981, Guida married singer and actor Johnny Dorelli, whom she met in the stage musical Accendiamo la lampada (1979). They have one daughter.
