Luisa Ranieri was a Neapolitan theatre and television actress when she booked a commercial job for Nescafe. The spot, Anto, fa Caldo! became a national catchphrase and made a celebrity out of the twentysomething actress. She was soon a favorite in national magazines and roles followed in Leonardo Pieraccioni's The Prince and the Pirate and Giulio Base's telefilm Maria Goretti. For her perfomance in The Prince and the Pirate, Ranieri received the Giuseppe De Santis Award as the Best New Face of the Italian Cinema.
