On stage

A student of actress Elsa Merlini, Valeri began her professional acting career in 1948, working on stage with fellow actors such as Gino Cervi, Ivo Garrani, Paolo Ferrari, Alberto Lupo, Alberto Lionello and Enrico Maria Salerno.[2]

In 1958, Valeri joined the Compagnia Attori Associati, where she met Garrani and Salerno; with the latter she established a strong artistic and personal relationship. A tireless actress, from the mid 1990s, Valeri continued to perform on theatrical stages with dedication, mostly in light comedies.[3]

Other activities

Valeri had a very short experience as a movie actress, especially due to the fact of being involved in several plays on stage. Despite this, Valeri has a very profitable career as a voice actress, giving her voice to actresses such as Julie Andrews, Ellen Burstyn, Natalie Wood, Maggie Smith and Anne Bancroft; she finished her dubbing career in 2008, four years after her last work, giving her voice to Mrs. Caloway in Home on the Range.[4]

On the small screen, Valeri is remembered mainly for the one role that made her very popular in the 1960s: Mrs. Stoppani, mother of the restless Giannino Stoppani (portrayed by Rita Pavone) in the 1964 short series Il giornalino di Gian Burrasca, directed by Lina Wertmüller.[3]

Personal life and death

Valeri has been engaged with Enrico Maria Salerno. The two had a daughter, Chiara, who is also an actress and a voice actress.[2] On December 1st 2015, Valeri was inducted as an honorary citizen of Forlì.

Valeri died in Rome on 11 June 2019, at the age of 97, from natural causes.[5]
