Rome’s Supreme Court upheld a Romanian judge’s decision to appoint a guardian for 94-year-old Italian actress Gina Lollobrigida. The Supreme Court rejected the previous judge’s objection to the judge’s decision. Lullobrigida’s son asked for a guardian for his mother, with whom he had a strained relationship.
And although the actress was sane, medical experts noted a “weakening of the correct perception of reality” and a state of “weakness” that made “working suggestions” possible. The son tried to put the singer under guardianship back in 2014, but failed in a court in Rome. Lollobrigida was bitter about the judge’s ruling. She said, according to media reports on Friday, that she will continue to fight against her paternity.
Although her last of 60+ films was 20 years ago, Gina Lollobrigida is an icon of Italian film. She was one of the most famous movie stars of the fifties and sixties. Together with Sophia Loren, she is one of the few Italian actresses who made a career in Hollywood and known in the USA. After acting, she started her career as a photographer and sculptor in the 1980s.
