Several Italian newspapers report the death of the actress Anna Maria Ferrero (1934-2018).

She worked with some of the big names of Italian cinema (Michelangelo Antonioni,  Eduardo De Filippo, Mario Monicelli, Vittorio de Sica, Mauro Bolognini, Raffaello Matarazzo, Dino Risi, Luigi Comencini...) and some Hollywood names (like King Vidor in War and Peace). For many of us, she always will be Gesuina in Carlo Lizzani's 1954 Cronache di poveri amanti... and in the Brontë story she also has a place: she was Catherine Earnshaw and Catherine Linton in a 1956 Italian adaptation of the story:
