It was reported on Monday by the Italian news outlet Lapresse that the Italian film actor Luigina “Gina” Lollobrigida, who became one of the most famous stars in European cinema during the 1950s and ’60s, had passed away. A 95-year-old woman, to be precise. Laprise (via Variety) reports that Lollobrigida passed away at a clinic in Rome.

As of yet, the exact cause of death remains unknown. She was “one of the brightest stars of Italian cinematography and culture,” as her grandnephew, Italy’s Minister of Agriculture Francesco Lollobrigida, tweeted on Monday. Lollobrigida, the daughter of a furniture manufacturer, was born in 1927. She studied sculpture at Rome’s Academy of Fine Arts and made her acting debut in several small roles in Italian films before placing third in the Miss Italia competition in 1947.

Lollobrigida’s career took off after she turned down an offer from Howard Hughes to film three films in the United States in 1950. She was nominated for a British Academy Film Award for Best Foreign Actress for her performance in “Bread, Love, and Dreams” in 1953.

Beat the Devil, a 1953 adventure comedy directed by John Huston and starring Lollobrigida and Humphrey Bogart, was Lollobrigida’s first film in the United States. In the 1950s and 1960s, she appeared in a slew of American films shot in France, Italy, and elsewhere in Europe.

Some of her most notable roles are in “Trapeze” with Burt Lancaster and Tony Curtis, “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” as Esmerelda, “Solomon and Sheba” with Yul Brynner, “Never So Flew” with Frank Sinatra and Steve McQueen, “And come September”. In 1953, she won Italy’s David di Donatello award for Best Actress for her portrayal of opera star Lina Cavalieri in the biopic “Beautiful But Dangerous,” or “The World’s Most Beautiful Woman” in Italy. Her roles made her a major sex symbol in Italian cinema.

Later, she received the Golden Medal of the City of Rome in 1986, the 40th Anniversary of David in 1996, and the 50th Anniversary of David in 2006. These were all for her work on “Imperial Venus” and “Buona Sera, Mrs. Campbell,” respectively. She was nominated for “Falcon Crest” and “Buona Sera, Mrs. Campbell” at the 1961 Golden Globes, where she won the Henrietta Award for “World Fan Favorite.”

Lollobrigida’s career slowed down after the ’60s, but she kept acting on and off, most notably in the 1995 Agnes Varda film “Les cent et Une Nuits de Simon Cinéma” and the 1980s TV shows “Falcon Crest” (on CBS) and “The Love Boat” (on ABC). Lollobrigida also ran unsuccessfully for the European Parliament in 1999 after establishing a successful second career as a photojournalist in the 1980s.

Her final film role was a cameo in the 2011 Italian parody “Box Office 3D: The Filmest of Films,” in which she portrayed herself. Lollobrigida has been honored with several prestigious awards throughout her career, including the Berlinale Camera in 1986, a special prize at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival in 1995, and the Rome Film Festival’s career prize in 2008.
