Life and careerEdit

Carmi was born Virginia Doglioli in Turin.[2][3] 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.[2][3]

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.[2][3] She was also very active on stage.[2] Gradually cast in less important roles, she eventually retired in the second half of the 1950s.[3]

Carmi was the first wife of the football player Aldo Giuseppe Borel.[3]
