“If you had told me that all of my precious possessions were for sale, I would have felt great sadness,” the actress, affectionately known to Italians as “La Lollo”, told prosecutors in Rome.

Ms. Lollobrigida was one of Hollywood’s biggest stars in the 1950s and 1960s.
She made her first Hollywood movie, Beat the Devil, with Humphrey Bogart in 1953 and starred in Solomon and Sheba with Yul Brynner.
One of his greatest successes was the 1955 production “La Donna Più Bella del Mondo”, or The Most Beautiful Woman in the World. She also appeared with Anthony Quinn in The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
She was often compared to two other sultry Italian actresses of the time – Sophia Loren and Claudia Cardinale. After retiring from acting, she embarked on a career as a sculptor and photographer.
