Elisa Visari. A new face of Italian cinema that conquers with talent and beauty

From Muccino to Italian cinema

Actress Elisa Visari is a beautiful girl from Latina, only 17 years old, who currently attends the fourth year of a foreign language high school. She has acted in Gabriele Muccino’s film, “A casa tutti bene” and in “Non sono un assassino”  a thriller directed by Andrea Zaccariello that will be coming out in Italian cinemas in spring.

When did this passion begin?

When I was 15: I signed up with a fashion agency in Rome; there I also auditioned for commercials and films and discovered that I really liked this kind of work. 

What do you want to do after high school?

I would certainly like to continue studying acting at a film or theater academy in Rome. 

What are your hobbies?

I studied dance for 12 years, then I stopped, but I have started to study singing in Latina. I love theater and I often see shows in both Latina and Rome, but I also like the cinema and going out with friends.

What do you like to do in your free time?

In Latina there is the sea and as soon as I can, I like to come here, to walk along the seafront, even in winter, with my little dog: a toy poodle. 

What do you like about acting?

I really like the relationship created with the director and the other actors. I have always met friendly, very down-to-earth people; at first, I thought this interaction would be more difficult. I love the fact that you can play characters with very different personalities while acting and completely immerse yourself in the life of someone else. 

Two qualities and two defects of Elisa?

Qualities: as a determined and caring person, I like to take care of the people near me. Defects: I am messy and a little lazy.
