Dutch postcard by Gebr. Spanjersberg N.V., Rotterdam, no. 3962. Sent by mail in 1959. Photo: UFA/Unitalia Film. Italian actress and photojournalist Gina Lollobrigida (1927), was one of Europe’s most prominent film stars of the 1950’s. ‘La Lollo’ was the first European sex symbol of the post war years and she paved the way into Hollywood for her younger colleagues Sophia Loren and Claudia Cardinale.
