Sophia Loren Honored in Venice
Screen legend, and Italian beauty, Sophia Loren was honored yesterday in Venice with the naming of a street after her. The Adriatic resort of Jesolo is a very exclusive area of Venice, and every year they choose a star to honor. Sophia was admittedly “emotional” during the ceremony.
”I’ve already left my handprint in Los Angeles, but it wasn’t Italy and there weren’t Italians around me,” she said ”This is very emotional for me and very important. I hope that when people cross this street they will send me a kiss: it’s a street as beautiful as a cinema set”.
Next up for the actress? She will be playing the mother role in Rob Marshall’s musical Nine opposite Daniel Day Lewis.
