Lollobrigida was an honorary citizen of a Tuscan town.
For decades she embodied the Italian stereotype of Mediterranean beauty, and was dubbed “the most beautiful woman in the world” after the title of one her movies.
Her films included Crossed Swords, the Hunchback of Notre Dame, Beautiful But Dangerous and Golden Globe-winner Come September.
She co-starred alongside the likes of Frank Sinatra, Rock Hudson, Errol Flynn and Humphrey Bogart, who once said Gina Lollobrigida “made Marilyn Monroe look like Shirley Temple”.
