(ANSA) – ROME, SEPTEMBER 20 – Congratulations Sophia Loren: our most beloved diva turns 87 today, September 20. Born in Pozzuoli in ’43, she has been living in Geneva in Switzerland for years: for her son Edoardo Ponti she returned to the screens in 2020 with Life in front of herself and for her intense interpretation she won the David di Donatello as Best Actress withdrawn on Rai1 live on 11 May 2021 feeling a great emotion. The American Film Institute placed her in 21st place among the greatest female performers of all time. Her long career began in the early 1950s, first with the name of Sofia Lazzaro and then Loren from De Sica’s L’oro di Napoli in ’54 to Peccato che è una rogue, by Alessandro Blasetti where she meets for the first time Marcello Mastroianni at Pane, amore e… by Dino Risi. She won two Oscars (in ’62 best actress for De Sica’s La Ciociara, the first non-English-speaking actress to win it and in ’91 for her career), five Golden Globes, a Golden Lion (for her career in 1998), a Grammy, a Coppa Volpi in Venice, a Prix at the Cannes Film Festival, a Golden Bear for Lifetime Achievement at the Berlin Film Festival, a BAFTA award, eleven David di Donatello awards and four Nastri d’Argento awards. Among the films that have made the history of Italian cinema: A special day, Yesterday, today, tomorrow and Italian wedding. During her career she was directed by the most famous directors such as Sidney Lumet, Charlie Chaplin, Martin Ritt, George Cukor, Dino Risi, Mario Monicelli, Ettore Scola and Vittorio De Sica and starred alongside Marcello Mastroianni, Marlon Brando, Cary Grant, John Wayne, Clark Gable and more. Sofia Villani Scicolone, Sophia Loren, is more than a star: she is a legend, the symbol of cinema in Italy in the world. (HANDLE).
