When Gina Lollobrigida Met Marilyn

Gina Lollobrigida, an icon of Italian cinema and one of the great post-war sex symbols, died aged 95 on January 16, 2023. You can read my tribute to ‘La Lollo’ – including her encounter with Marilyn in New York, on the same day that the iconic ‘subway grate’ scene from The Seven Year Itch was shot – over here.
