Invasione Italiana // Editorial Video Exclusive

The world is yearning for roots and Roberta Sparta brings hers all the way from Italy…

A descendent of an Italian fashion house that turned manufacture for all the top labels such as ARMANI , VALENTINO, UNGARO, VERSACE. Sparta was born into the fashion business and came to Hollywood, California nearly  8 years ago to take her career as an actor and model to another level.

A Hollywood dream is born through her talent, beauty and determination to become the next successful import from Europe. The Fashion Noir film,  “Invasione Italiana” shows a twisted view of Hollywood.

Most recently the European and American worlds collide as Sparta is featured on the Italian TV show “Notorius” where the correspondent Alina Chelaru  follows Sparta around Hollywood capturing a day in the life of this rising star.

Sparta born and raised in Dueville, Italy has called Los Angeles home since late 2008 when she moved here and attended the American Academy of Dramatic Arts.

She has starred in films such as “Anger of the Dead” , “Sex and the Single Alien” , “Ritual: A Psychomagic Story, “Things from Another World” and “Through the Wormhole” produced by Morgan Freeman.

In 2011 Sparta produced a short film entitled “A True Love” that was included in the “Short Corner” section at the acclaimed Cannes Film Festival.

She recently took on the animation genre by lending her voice to several characters in the Disney short “O’Sole Minnie” that won “Best Animated Short” at the 2014 Emmy Awards.

With all of these accomplishments Sparta has a big heart finding true comfort and joy in helping other through volunteering.

Two things she cannot live without, italian coffee and love!

To say the least Sparta is driven, and will make it as high as her dreams take her.
