#ClaudiaCardinale

Claudia Cardinale, all’anagrafe Claude Joséphine Rose Cardinale (Tunisi, 15 aprile 1938), è un’attrice italiana.

È stata definita l’attrice italiana più importante emersa negli anni sessanta ed è stata l’unica a conseguire una notorietà internazionale paragonabile a quella di Sophia Loren,o di Gina Lollobrigida, entrambe facenti parte della precedente generazione di attrici negli anni cinquanta. La stampa internazionale l’ha spesso definita la donna più bella del mondo durante quel decennio.

La sua «bellezza in pari tempo solare e notturna, delicata e incisiva, enigmatica e inquietante» è stata utilizzata e valorizzata dai maggiori autori dell’epoca d’oro del cinema italiano. Si ricordano in particolare le sue interpretazioni per Visconti (Il Gattopardo, Vaghe stelle dell’Orsa), Fellini (), Bolognini (Il bell’Antonio, La viaccia, Senilità), Zurlini (La ragazza con la valigia), Comencini (La ragazza di Bube), Sergio Leone (C’era una volta il West), Luigi Zampa (Bello, onesto, emigrato Australia sposerebbe compaesana illibata), Luigi Magni (Nell’anno del Signore) e Damiano Damiani (Il giorno della civetta).

Nel 1984 vince il Premio Pasinetti alla miglior attrice alla 42ª Mostra internazionale d’arte cinematografica di Venezia per Claretta. Ha inoltre vinto il Leone d’oro alla carriera, l’Orso d’oro alla carriera al Festival di Berlino, 5 David di Donatello e 5 Nastri d’argento.

Come le altre attrici della sua generazione, ha incarnato un nuovo modello femminile, una donna volitiva e battagliera, che vuole essere libera e indipendente  afferma la proprietà di se stessa ed aspira ad un ruolo paritario nei rapporti affettivi e professionali.

Compagna per oltre un decennio del produttore cinematografico Franco Cristaldi, principale artefice della sua carriera, dalla metà degli anni settanta è legata al regista Pasquale Squitieri e dalla fine degli anni ottanta risiede stabilmente in Francia. Ha due figli, Patrick e Claudia junior. Nel 1979 diventa nonna.

 

Claudia Cardinale (born 15 April 1938) is an Italian Tunisian film actress and sex symbol who appeared in some of the most acclaimed European films of the 1960s and 1970s, mainly Italian or French, but also in several English films.

Born and raised in La Goulette, a neighbourhood of Tunis, Cardinale won the “Most Beautiful Italian Girl in Tunisia” competition in 1957, the prize being a trip to Italy, which quickly led to film contracts, due above all to the involvement of Franco Cristaldi, who acted as her mentor for a number of years and later married her. After making her debut in a minor role with Omar Sharif in Goha (1958), Cardinale became one of the best-known actresses in Italy after roles in films such as Rocco and His Brothers (1960), Girl with a Suitcase (1961), The Leopard (1963), Cartouche (1963), and Fellini’s (1963).[a] From 1963, Cardinale became known in the United States and Britain following her role in The Pink Panther opposite David Niven. For several years, she appeared in Hollywood films such as Blindfold (1965) opposite Rock Hudson, Lost Command (1966), The Professionals (1966), The Hell with Heroes (1968), and the Sergio Leone epic Western Once Upon a Time in the West (1968), a joint US-Italian production, in which she was praised for her role as a former prostitute opposite Jason Robards, Charles Bronson, and Henry Fonda.

Jaded with the Hollywood film industry and not wanting to become a cliché, Cardinale returned to Italian and French cinema, and garnered the David di Donatello for Best Actress award for her roles in Il giorno della civetta (1968) and as a prostitute alongside Alberto Sordi in A Girl in Australia (1971). In 1974, Cardinale met director Pasquale Squitieri, who would become her husband, and she frequently featured in his films, including I guappi (1974), Corleone (1978) and Claretta (1984), the last of which won her the Nastro d’Argento Award for Best Actress. In 1982, she starred in Werner Herzog’s Fitzcarraldo as the love interest of Klaus Kinski, who raises the funds to buy a steamship in South America. In 2010, Cardinale received the Actress Award at the 47th Antalya “Golden Orange” International Film Festival for her performance as an elderly Italian woman who takes in a young Turkish exchange student in Signora Enrica.

Outspoken on women’s rights causes over the years, Cardinale has been a UNESCO goodwill ambassador for the Defense of Women’s Rights since March 2000. In February 2011, the Los Angeles Times Magazine named Cardinale among the 50 most beautiful women in film history.

He is regarded as being among the foremost fashion designers in the twentieth century. In 1985, Caroline Rennolds Milbank wrote, “The most consistently celebrated and influential designer of the past twenty-five years, Yves Saint Laurent can be credited with both spurring the couture’s rise from its 1960s ashes and with finally rendering ready-to-wear reputable.” He was able to adapt his style to accommodate the changes in fashion during that period. He approached fashion in a different perspective by wanting women to look comfortable yet elegant at the same time. He is also credited with having introduced the tuxedo suit for women and was known for his use of non-European cultural references, and non-white models.

Sophia Loren (/sˈfə ləˈrɛn/; Italian pronunciation: [soˈfiːa ˈlɔːren]; born Sofia Villani Scicolone [soˈfiːa vilˈlaːni ʃʃikoˈloːne], 20 September 1934) is an Italian film actress. Encouraged to enroll in acting lessons after entering a beauty pageant, Loren began her film career in 1950 at age 15. She appeared in several bit parts and minor roles in the early part of the decade, until her five-picture contract with Paramount in 1956 launched her international career. Notable film appearances around this time include The Pride and the Passion, Houseboat, and It Started in Naples.

Her talents as an actress were not recognized until her performance as Cesira in Vittorio De Sica’s Two Women; Loren’s performance earned her the Academy Award for Best Actress in 1962 and made her the first artist to win an Oscar for a foreign-language performance. She holds the record for having earned six David di Donatello Awards for Best Actress, the most ever received: Two Women; Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow; Marriage Italian Style (for which she was nominated for a second Oscar); Sunflower; The Voyage; and A Special Day. After starting her family in the early 1970s, Loren spent less time on her acting career and chose to make only occasional film appearances. In later years, she has appeared in American films such as Grumpier Old Men and Nine.

Aside from the Academy Award, she has won a Grammy Award, five special Golden Globes, a BAFTA Award, a Laurel Award, the Best Actress Award at the Cannes Film Festival, and the Honorary Academy Award in 1991. In 1995, she received the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievements, one of many such awards. In 1999, Loren was acknowledged as one of the top 25 female American Screen Legends in the American Film Institute’s survey, AFI’s 100 Years…100 Stars.

#JaquelineKennedyOnassis

Jacqueline Lee Bouvier, detta Jackie (Jackie Kennedy, durante il primo matrimonio, Jackie O, durante il secondo), coniugata Kennedy in prime nozze e Onassis in seconde nozze (Southampton, 28 luglio 1929 – New York, 19 maggio 1994), è stata una first lady statunitense.

Fu la moglie di John Fitzgerald Kennedy, 35º presidente degli Stati Uniti, First Lady dal 20 gennaio 1961 al 22 novembre 1963, data dell’assassinio del marito. Vedova, sposò poi l’armatore greco Aristotele Onassis.

Jacqueline LeeJackieKennedy Onassis (née Bouvier, pronounced /ˌˈækln ˈl ˈbvi/; July 28, 1929 – May 19, 1994) was the wife of the 35th President of the United States, John F. Kennedy, and First Lady of the United States during his presidency from 1961 until his assassination in 1963. Five years later, she married Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis; they remained married until his death in 1975.

Jacqueline was the elder daughter of Wall Street stockbroker John Vernou Bouvier III and socialite Janet Norton Lee, who divorced in 1940. In 1951, she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in French literature at George Washington University and went on to work for the Washington Times-Herald as an Inquiring Photographer.

In 1952, Jacqueline met Congressman John F. Kennedy at a dinner party. Shortly after, he was elected to the United States Senate and the couple married the following year. They had four children, two of whom died in infancy. As First Lady, she aided her husband’s administration with her presence in social events and with her highly publicized restoration of the White House. On November 22, 1963, she was riding with her husband in a motorcade in Dallas, Texas, when he was assassinated. She and her children withdrew from public view after his funeral, and she remarried in 1968 after the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy.

Following her second husband’s death, for the final two decades of her life, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis had a career as a book editor. She is remembered for her contributions to the arts and preservation of historic architecture, as well as for her style, elegance, and grace. She was a fashion icon; her famous ensemble of pink Chanel suit and matching pillbox hat has become symbolic of her husband’s assassination and one of the lasting images of the 1960s. She ranks as one of the most popular First Ladies and in 1999 was named on Gallup’s list of Most Admired Men and Women in 20th century America.jaqueline kennedy a fiumino siste

#SilvanaPampanini

Silvana Pampanini (Roma, 25 settembre 1925 – Roma, 6 gennaio 2016) è stata un’attrice cinematografica italiana che ha goduto di una grande notorietà negli anni cinquanta.

Di famiglia veneta trapiantata a Roma da tre generazioni, si diplomò all’istituto magistrale e al conservatorio musicale di Santa Cecilia. Era ancora una studentessa quando si iscrisse al concorso di Miss Italia rilanciato a Stresa nel settembre del 1946 dopo la pausa bellica: nonostante la vittoria ufficiale di Rossana Martini le vivaci proteste del pubblico determinarono l’assegnazione del premio “ex aequo” anche a Silvana.

Questo concorso di bellezza la lanciò nel mondo del cinema: la Pampanini iniziò la carriera come interprete di pellicole musicali e acquisì una popolarità crescente tramite i settimanali illustrati e i cinegiornali. Suo padre, inizialmente contrario alla carriera della figlia come attrice, lasciò il proprio lavoro e divenne il suo abile agente.

Nella prima metà degli anni cinquanta, poco prima che Sophia Loren e Gina Lollobrigida raggiungessero una grande notorietà, per una breve stagione la Pampanini fu il simbolo più rappresentativo della bellezza italiana a livello mondiale, assieme a Lucia Bosè e Silvana Mangano. Grazie alla sua solida preparazione musicale nel decennio 1947/1957 fu ingaggiata anche per registrare, su dischi in vinile a 78 e 45 giri, numerose canzoni che non sono mai state ripubblicate su supporti più moderni.

 

Born in Rome, Pampanini became one of the most popular movie actresses in her country and was considered a sex symbol in the 1950s. In 1955 she visited New York, Denver and Hollywood but rejected job offers because she could not speak English properly and had some problems with the tax office.

She was also appreciated in France, where they nicknamed her Ninì Pampan, Spain, where she appeared in Tirma, South America, especially in Mexico, where she starred in Sed de Amor with Pedro Armendáriz, and Egypt. She worked with other internationally important actors and directors such as Buster Keaton, Vittorio Gassman, Marcello Mastroianni, Alberto Sordi, Totò, Jean Gabin, Henri Vidal, Abel Gance, Vittorio De Sica.
