Life and career

Born in Pisa, Braccini moved to Rome at 14 years old and debuted on stage in 1912 as an extra at the Teatro Argentina, in a theatrical work directed by Cesare Dondini.[1][2] After a series of other experiences, in 1917 she entered the company held by Antonio Gandusio, with whom she stayed until 1922, while in 1924 she had her first leading roles.[1] In 1939 Braccini debuted in a role of "mother" with the company headed by Dina Galli, and in a short time this kind of role became distinctive of her subsequent career, notably gaining critical acclaim for her performance as Christine Mannon in an adaptation of Mourning Becomes Electra directed in 1942 by Anton Giulio Bragaglia.[1] After the war she kept on working on stage with notable directors, including Luchino Visconti, Garinei & Giovannini, Giorgio De Lullo.[1] She was also active in films and on television, and was a voice actress and a dubber.[1] She died in a clinic of Parioli, where she had been hospitalized a week before for heart ailments.[2]
