Funeral service for Gina Lollobrigida on Thursday in Rome

On tomorrow, January 19, grieving fans will have another opportunity to say goodbye until 11:30 a.m. in the morning. According to media reports, Lollobrigida’s funeral service is scheduled to begin at 12:30 p.m. The ceremony takes place in the Church of Santa Maria in Piazza del Popolo, one of the most famous squares in Rome.

On January 16, Lollobrigida’s family confirmed that the film legend had died at the age of 95. She was once called the most beautiful woman in the world and became an international star in the 1950s with “Fanfan, der Hussar” and “Die Schönen der Nacht”. From the 1970s, Lollobrigida, who appeared in several films alongside Mario Adorf (92), concentrated on working as a photographer and sculptor. She had therefore only occasionally appeared in TV or film productions.
