Italian film, theatre and television actress.

After her debut at sixteen years of age under the direction of Giorgio Strehler in "The Cherry Orchard," she tied herself romantically and artistically to film and theatre director Gabriele Lavia, acting in his theatrical performances mostly strong female characters like Jocasta, Lady Macbeth and Ophelia. The couple separated in 2001, and Guerritore continued her work with other directors, like Giancarlo Sepe, in "Madame Bovary," "Carmen" and in "The Lady of the Camellias."

Beside the stage career, she also works on television and film: in 1976 along with Marcello Mastroianni in "Signore e signori, buonanotte," in 1977 she plays the title role in first RAI colour TV play "Manon Lescaut," also, significant performances were in Salvatore Samperi's "Fotografando Patrizia" (1985) and in Mauro Bolognini's "La Venexiana" (1986).

She came back to RAI in 1997, in the tile role in "Costanza," and in 1999, in Mario Caiano's "L'amore oltre la vita." In 2004, she played Ambra Leonardi in "Amanti e segreti," and in 2006 Ada Sereni in Gianluigi Calderone's "Exodus."

Gabriele Lavia directed her in many, often erotically toned, movies, including "Scandalosa Gilda" (1985), "Sensi" (1986) and "La lupa" (1996). In theatre, she directed "Giovanna d'Arco" (2004–2006), and "Dall'Inferno all'Infinito" (2008).
