Many well-known actors come from an Italian background. As part of our
exploration into Italian culture, we looked to our favorite media stars,
many whom evoke that special Italian quality through beauty and elegance,
handy food skills or tough, yet pensive personalities.
Our first pick is model Monica Bellucci, who in her late 40’s was named
one of the “Most Beautiful Women of All-Time.” Seems Italians only get
better with age! She recently starred in a Dolce and Gabbana ad campaign,
which was appropriately set in Italy.
Another famous face includes chef and writer Giada Pamela De Laurentiis.
She has a passion for food and her own show on the Food Network.
Beauty icon Sophia Loren was born in Rome where she grew up to become an
international film star. Other actors include tough guys like Al Pacino
and Robert De Niro, along with People’s Sexiest Man Alive, Bradley Cooper.
Quite a talented bunch indeed!
