Italian actress and model.

After her high school degree in classical studies, Francesca Dellera started working as a model. Her beauty and allure graced the covers of national and international magazines. She was shot by world-class photographers such as Helmut Newton, Dominique Isserman, Greg Gorman, Micheal Comte as well as others.

La Romana was the television version of the film bearing the same name directed by Luigi Zampa. The film itself was based on the novel of the great Italian author Alberto Moravia, and in the television series, an audience of over 10 million watched Dellera in her lead role with Gina Lollobrigida (leading actress in the original film). For her performance Dellera won the Telegatto award.

However, it was the 1991 film The Flesh directed by Marco Ferreri that Dellera reached international acclaim. The film entered the 1991 Cannes Film Festival.

Later she moved in Paris, where she had an affair with Christopher Lambert. In 1994 she starred in Jacques Deray's L'Ours en peluche, alongside Alain Delon, then focused her appearances on TV-series.

She was later a catwalk model for Jean Paul Gaultier's collection. After having spent a number of years in France, she returned to Rome where she played the title role in Nanàa television mini-series directed by Alberto Negrin. The mini-series was based on the novel bearing the same name by Émile Zola. Later, she had the lead role in the TV film La contessa di Castiglione (that was also part of a French co-production Josée Dayan). Dellera acted with Jeanne Moreau in this film. She also appeared in several advertising campaigns.
