Actress Gina Lollobrigida passed away on January 16. She was 95 years old.
The death of the great artist was reported by the Italian television channel RaiNews, calling Gina’s departure “mourning for the whole world.” But representatives of the actress did not name the cause of death.
The actress has managed to stay healthy all these years and even attend social events. Lollobrigida until recently visited film festivals, where she was a guest of honor.
The popularity of the actress came in 1952, when the film “Fanfan Tulip” was released. The brown-eyed and brown-haired woman was immediately noticed by the audience and instantly liked.
Years passed, and almost every film with the participation of the star became the best!
Having abandoned several film projects, the actress was actively engaged in two things: photography and sculpting sculptures. The first one pleased Gina the most and until the last day she loved to take pictures of the world and the people around her. But it was not only a hobby, but also a form of income.
Lollobrigidna photographed Paul Newman, Salvador Dali, Fidel Castro and many other legendary people. Later, these photographs were collected in the book “My Italy”, which she published in 1973.
In addition to creativity, the Italian beauty devoted herself to her family. The first marriage was with the Yugoslav doctor, Milko Skofich in 1949, and in 1957 the only son of the actress, Milko Jr., was born.
Having lived enough time together, the actress decided to separate from her husband in 1971, but the actress was not destined to remain alone until the end of her days.
At the age of 79, Gina found her love – 45-year-old architect Javier Rigau.
