Tina Lattanzi (born Annunziata Concetta Costantini; 5 December 1897 – 25 October 1997) was an Italian actress and voice actress. [1]



A native of Licenza and the daughter of Ercole Costantini and Geltrude Montori, Lattanzi began her acting career in 1922 when she met Vittorio De Sica, who in turn, introduced her to Tatyana Pavlova, who coached her into acting. [2] Lattanzi was mainly active on stage during the 1920s before making her screen debut in 1930 and she was well known for her portrayals of women of noble birth. In 1954, Lattanzi began focusing her attention on television. Because of her drawl, persuasive voice, she also turned to the Cooperativa Doppiatori Cinematografici during the 1940s.

As a prominent dubbing artist, Lattanzi performed the Italian voices of some of the major film icons of the 20th century such as Greta Garbo, Rita Hayworth, Marlene Dietrich, Joan Crawford, Greer Garson, Myrna Loy, Rosalind Russell, Martita Hunt, Agnes Moorehead, Tamara Lees and Italian actresses such as Franca Marzi. In her animated roles, Lattanzi typically dubbed the Italian voices of villains such as the Evil Queen in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs , Lady Tremaine in Cinderella , the Queen of Hearts in Alice in Wonderland and Maleficent in Sleeping Beauty . [3]

By the time Lattanzi reached her sixties, there had been a decline in her career, yet she was still active on television. She eventually retired after an eye infection.

Personal life

Lattanzi married Giovanni Lattanzi in 1919 and took his name. They had two children, Fiorella and Glauco. They later divorced because of her acting obligations and her later relationship with her collaborator Guido Brignone.


Lattanzi died in Rome on 25 October 1997, less than two months before her 100th birthday.
