About Isotta (twin) Ingrid Frieda Giuliana Rossellini

She is the daughter of actress Ingrid Bergman and director Roberto Rossellini. In addition, she is the twin sister of actress Isabella Rossellini. She also has a brother, Roberto Ingmar Rossellini, and a half-sister, Pia Lindström.

Rossellini received a BS, MA and Ph.D in Italian Literature from Columbia University in New York City, New York. While obtaining her doctorate, she studied under Maristella Lorch and Luciano Rebay.

In 1976, Rossellini served as a makeup artist in her mother's film A Matter of Time. In 1995 Leo S. Olschki Editore, an Italian publisher of literary criticism, published her dissertation, an analysis of Petrarch's Il Canzoniere, in the book Nel Trapassar del Segno: Idoli della Mente ed Echi della Vita nei 'Rerum Vulgarium Fragmenta'.

Rossellini has taught Italian literature at both New York University, where she is an adjunct professor, and at State University of New York at Stony Brook. She has also taught World War II Italian cinema at Princeton University and literature of social reflection at Harvard University. For her Italian cinema classes, she lectures on the Italian Neorealism of her father's works, emphasizing his later work for Italian television.
