Gloria Guida (Italian pronunciation: [ˈɡlɔrja ˈɡwida]; born 19 November 1955) is an Italian actress and model. She is most famous for starring in the commedia erotica all'italiana, particularly La liceale series and also in erotic coming-of-age-drama films in the mid-1970s.

Life and career[edit]

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's coast. Then she took up modeling, becoming Miss Teenage Italia in 1974.

She subsequently went on to star in many sexy comedies. Her two early films La ragazzina (Monika in English-language release) and La minorenne, both shot in the summer of 1974, are the stories of young female characters in the phase of discovering their sexuality, often reluctant between mature admirers and younger lovers. 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.

After her relationship and later marriage with singer and actor Johnny Dorelli, whom she met in the stage musical Accendiamo la lampada (1979), she left the cinema world. They have been married since 1981 and have a daughter.
