Gina Lollobrigida, Baudo: “Thanks to her optimism she has never aged”

“Multifaceted artist, great painter and sculptor, her house was full of paintings and sculptures”

“The thing I’ll take inside of Gina Lollobrigida is her optimism, thanks to which she never aged“. Are the words with which Goofy Baudo chooses to remember with Adnkronos Gina Lollobrigida, who passed away today at the age of 95. “She was a very versatile woman -recalls the dean of TV presenters- a great painter and sculptor, her house was full of statues, beautiful paintings made by her. She was a very multifaceted woman”.

Having to choose the characteristics that distinguished the ‘Bersagliera’ from the others, “the great positivity of character and its versatility as an actress, able to do comic and dramatic roles. But also her great versatility as an artist, because she really did some very beautiful things “, articulates Pippo Baudo. Which recalls the proverbial temper of ‘Lollo’: “She was from Subiaco and had this very nice provincial character. The causes she faced made her suffer, but she overcame them very well, because she was fundamentally an optimist.”
