Tina Lattanzi was the daughter of Ercole Costantini and Geltrude Montori. In 1919 she married Giovanni Lattanzi, a high school professor. They had two sons and a daughter, Fiorella (1921-2009), who became a pianist. She was bored with married life at the time she met the young Vittorio De Sica in 1922. He introduced her to Tatiana Pavlova who gave her acting lessons. Her husband allowed her to accept an engagement in Pavlova's acting company in 1923.

In 1929 she toured in South America with Ruggero Ruggeri and she also worked for the Compagnia Teatrale Za-Bum of Mario Mattoli. In 1930 she made her movie debut in "La straniera", followed by Mario Bonnard's "Cingue a zero" in 1932. After she fell in love with the director Guido Brignone she separated from her husband. She appeared in many movies and lent her voice to dub many of the voices of famous Hollywood actresses.

Because of her passion for gambling she lived in poor circumstances later in her life. She died shortly before her 100th birthday in Milan in 1997.
