Mort 22 novembre 1995 (à 87 ans)
Born Maria Cumani in Milan, she studied classical dance under Jia Ruskaja. In 1936 she became the companion of the poet Salvatore Quasimodo, with whom she had a son, Alessandro. In 1937 she made her professional debut as a ballerina, and shortly later she specialized in "poetic dance", a personal style in which dance was combined with poetic verses. She was married to Quasimodo from 1948 to 1960. In the meanwhile Cumani Quasimodo abandoned dance, and started a double career as a coreographer and a stage and film character actress. Shortly before her death, she released an autobiography, L'arte del silenzio, which particularly focuses on her years alongside Salvatore Quasimodo.
