Argentine singer and movie actress, who became a citizen of Spain in 1999. Born to Antonio Nile (a guitar player, born in Gibraltar) and Rosario del Río (a native of Monda in the Province of Málaga), she performed onstage in her native Argentina, where she had a long and successful career. At that time, her stage name was Pettit Imperio. But her most successful moments came after she moved to Spain. It was there that she changed her name to Imperio Argentina, as a way to honour her "other country". While in Spain, del Río appeared in many movies, and frequently on television and radio. She obtained Spanish citizenship in 1999.
In January 2003, she suffered an angina attack and was admitted to the University Hospital of Malaga. She died in Benalmádena in the Province of Málaga (her mother was born and raised in the same province) on 22 August 2003, aged 92.
