The Spazio 5 cultural center in Rome is on Friday unveiling a photography exhibit in tribute to the Academy Award-winning actress.
With more than 40 portraits of Loren, shot by Carlo and Maurizio Riccardi, organizers say the exhibit will reveal behind-the-scenes moments in the actress’ life. They feature such things as the set of Two Women to Loren having cocktails with Marcello Mastroianni to celebrate the wrap of Marriage Italian Style.
There are also photographs of Loren’s triumphs in her home country, including her many wins at the David di Donatello awards. Armando Editore will publish an accompanying book.
Also tied to Loren’s birthday, Mexico City just opened an exhibit in honor of the actress featuring original costumes and memorabilia from her career, including her best actress Oscar statuette for Two Women (1961).
Loren was also a guest of honor at Cannes Classics this year, where she revealed that she didn’t make the trip to Los Angeles for the 1962 Oscars ceremony because she thought she had no chance of winning. She made it out in 1991, when she received the honorary Oscar for her illustrious career.
AFI will also honor Loren at its November festival in Hollywood for the 50th anniversary of Marriage Italian Style, which recently received a restoration from Cineteca di Bologna and the Technicolor Foundation for Cinema.
