Forgotten today, Marcella Albani was an idol of the European cinema in the final years of the 1920s, making dozens of films in five different countries . One thing leading to another Marcella Albani made no fewer than fifty-odd films in only seventeen years. She was not even sixty when, having fallen into oblivion, she died of a brain tumor. Will she be rediscovered some day?
She has an entry in Kay Wenigers "Das grosse Personenlexikon des Films, Erster Band (A-C)", published in Berlin by Schwarzkopf & Schwarzkopf in 2001 (ISBN: 3896 02 34 03).
After her last movie she retired from the film business and lived at the Ligurian coast.
With the rise of the sound film she devoted more to the literature. She published several novels, among others "La Citta dellamore", which was adapted for the screen with her in 1933.
