Sandra Ceccarelli (born 3 July 1967) is an Italian film actress.

Daughter of Franco Ceccarelli, guitarist of the 1960s and 1970s Italian rock group Equipe 84, and Sandra von Glasersfeld (daughter of philosopher Ernst von Glasersfeld), Ceccarelli had her film debut at the age of sixteen in Giuseppe Bertolucci's 1985 film Segreti segreti.

Between 1995 and 1997 she studied acting with Carlos Alsina and Giorgio Albertazzi. After spending several years in theatre, she returned to film in 2001 by starring in Ermanno Olmi's film The Profession of Arms and Giuseppe Piccioni's Light of My Eyes, for which she won the Volpi Cup for Best Actress at the 2001 Venice Film Festival.

She also starred in Piccioni's 2004 film The Life I Want, which won her a second nomination for the David di Donatello for Best Actress award (the Italian equivalent of the Academy Award), and a nomination for the 2005 European Film Award for Best Actress (which she lost to Germany's Julia Jentsch).

She also appeared in the 2006 Austrian biopic Klimt about the painter Gustav Klimt and the 2006 Croatian film Libertas about the Renaissance playwright Marin Držić.


Fille du musicien Franco Ceccarelli et de l'écrivaine Sandra von Glasersfeld (elle-même fille du philosophe Ernst von Glasersfeld), elle débute au cinéma à l'âge de seize ans dans le film Segreti segreti de Giuseppe Bertolucci. Elle alterne alors entre le cinéma et le théâtre.

En 2001, elle joue dans Luce dei miei occhi de Giuseppe Piccioni et remporte avec ce rôle une Coupe Volpi pour la meilleure interprétation féminine, devenant la cinquième actrice italienne à remporter ce prix.

En 2003, elle partage notamment l'affiche de La vita che vorrei de Giuseppe Piccioni avec Galatea Ranzi et Luigi Lo Cascio. En 2006, elle apparaît dans le film Klimt, une œuvre biographique sur la vie du peintre viennois Gustav Klimt puis figure dans la distribution du film Libertas consacré au dramaturge Marin Držić.

Gustav Klimt's life story unfolds in a series of disjointed sequences in the artist's mind as he lies dying of pneumonia in a Viennese hospital where he is visited by his friend, Egon Schiele (Nikolai Kinski). Themes within the film include Klimt's platonic friendship with Emilie Floege (Veronica Ferres). Much of the film is centred on Klimt's relationship with Lea de Castro (Saffron Burrows), a dancer to whom he is introduced by the film pioneer Georges Méliès.
