I am always amazed at my neighbors and their energy. Maybe it’s the wine. Nobody I know here in the Lunigiana is a couch potato. After working eight hours, you tend the garden, harvest your olives or, this time of year, fatten your pigs with acorns.
Even if you happen to be a sex symbol, you never stop working or striving for something better. Get this, Gina Lollobrigida has had a sculpture workshop in Pietrasanta for ten years. She’s currently having an exhibition that ends November 16th:
On show marbles, bronzes, lithographs and photos, as her most famous films will be shown at the Town Cinema. Two bronzes, more than 5 meters tall, introduce the wide anthological exhibition that features 11 sculptures in marble and bronze (on show inside the Church of Sant’Agostino), 12 plastic works, on show in the halls of Putti and Capitolo together with some lithographs. In the hall of Grasce will be shown an autobiographic film, directed by Gina Lollobrigida, which narrates her artistic life.
Gina Lollobridgida is 81. If you’re too young to remember her, here is a short clip from the movie Fast and Sexy. Ah, those were the days.
