Evelina Manna (born July 7, 1972) is an Italian model, actress and producer. Born in Rome, she felt in love with dance as a little girl when she saw for the first time the étoile Carla Fracci on television.
Her mother decided to fulfill her desire by bringing her in a classic dance school. Soon after, Evelina Manna became interested in acting. The Kid, Charlie Chaplin's masterpiece and one of the greatest movies in the history of cinema, convinced her to take this path inside the theater of the church where she attended school.
Her artistic career began in the fashion industry: first in Paris and then in New York she had the opportunity to work with top photographers, including Patrick Demarchelier, Ellen Von Unwerth, Simon Emmett, Jonathan Lennard, Tony Kelly, Alan Gelati, Signe Vilstrup, Jean Baptiste Greouille and Antoine Verglas. These were years of intense activity, culminating with a meeting in London with Susan Strasberg, who advised her to participate in the seminars of Actor's Studio.
The experience offered her the opportunity to return to her love for acting and to start working in theaters in off Broadway and in Rome, where she performed in the stage adaptation of Annie Hall, Woody Allen's masterpiece. In Rome she debuted also on television by acting in Padre Pio and La Guerra è finita. Soon after, she started to act for cinema in Alessandro D'Alatri's Casomai and Mimmo Calopresti's short film Una bellissima bambina, presented at the 61st Venice International Film Festival.
This was a period of great achievements, during which she alternated passion for cinema and theater to art photography for the most glamorous magazines. In 2005 she joined the cast of Alexander, historical movie directed by Oliver Stone. This was a great experience which gave her the opportunity to act with Hollywood stars such as Colin Farrell, Angelina Jolie, Val Kilmer, Jared Leto and Rosario Dawson.
Two years later Evelina Manna was the star and co-producer of Breaking the Silence, spot against violence on women, developed for the European Community. The project was born as a result of the establishment of Moodyproduction, the production company she started with a group of young professionals with the aim to create independent works related to the world of culture, music and art in general.
In 2010 she came back to the small screen playing, along with Enrico Lo Verso, the leading actress in the remake of the TV movie La donna velata. The movie is a mystery thriller inspired by the legend of the veiled lady. She played also for television the role of Eve in the miniseries Eve and Munchies, where she acted as a space heroine with superpowers interacting with the irreverent puppets.
At the same time she continued her work in production with the short film A Day & a Minute, which was presented with great success on Taormina Film Fest 2011. In 2013 she produced Let's Fall in Love, a spot against homophobia directed by Pappi Corsicato, which premiered at Venice International Film Festival and Palermo Pride. Vinodentro, directed by Ferdinando Vicentini Orgnani and based on the novel by Fabio Marcotto, is the first production for cinema by Moodyproduction.
