Maria is a kind, slightly naive woman from Venice, although ever since she began working at La Scala, she spends most of her time in Florence. She would travel home to see her lover, Georgio, but because he was poor (and a bit communist), her father rejected him and refused to give his blessing to their marriage. After her father’s death, Alberto Rossini swooped in and claimed Maria as his own. Maria detested the man, and reached out to the investigators for help in getting away. Thankfully, Georgio and Maria managed to elope, and are now travelling on the Orient Express with the group. She is incredibly grateful for the investigator’s help, and would be happy to accompany them should they need anything.
