Sophia Loren remains undoubtedly the most famous Italian actress of the Twentieth Century. She is beloved by Italians and Americans alike for her style and sensuality as well as her natural warmth and charm. Sophia Loren came to embody the spirit of a newly capitalist Italy and the economic boom which spawned what is often referred to as the ‘dolce vita’ era.
Loren rose to fame as a comedic
actress whose curvaceous figure
made her a sex symbol
embodying the ideal of Italian
femininity. However Loren’s
acting abilities and timeless
elegance soon sealed her
position as an Italian icon,
unmatched by any other. In
1960, Loren became the first
Italian woman to win an Oscar for
her performance in La Ciocciara,
directed by Vittorio De Sica.
