Life and career

Carmi was born Virginia Doglioli in Turin.[1][2] After being spotted by the director Ferdinando Maria Poggioli in a beauty contest, she made her film debut in 1940, in a supporting role in Poggioli's Goodbye Youth and in a short time she became one of the most requested actresses in the Telefoni Bianchi genre.[1][2]

After the war she got critical acclaim for a number of dramatic performances, notably Mario Soldati's His Young Wife and Luciano Emmer's Sunday in August.[1][2] She was also very active on stage.[1] Gradually cast in less important roles, she eventually retired in the second half of the 1950s.[2]

Carmi was the first wife of the football player Aldo Giuseppe Borel.[2]
