I would therefore like to deny this rumor that is circulating with insistence, breaking for a moment the confidentiality that I have held over the years. Monica has been living in Rome at home and she is assiduously assisted by me, with the help of a caregiver. I hope I have clarified the misunderstanding.
Monica Vitti is also a myth for her colleagues. The great actress Vanessa Redgrave confessed: “I wanted to be like Monica Vitti”. The British star refers to when she worked with Michelangelo Antonioni, long-time companion of Vitti, in Blow-up: “My God, I will have a role like Monica Vitti !. She is an actress ‘excellent’: I loved her mermaid style wedding dress, I wanted to be like her, and also blonde like her … but I had nothing in Monica! My hopes were in fact futile, and Michelangelo said he wanted me with black hair and white stripes. We would have shot seven or eight different hairdressers, but in the whole of London nobody really understood what Michelangelo wanted. ”
Monica Vitti did not have an easy life. Misunderstood by the family, her childhood was sad. That’s why she started acting black and white bridesmaid dresses under 100, as she confessed in one of her books: I’m an actress not to die. “When I had almost decided to stop living at the age of 14, I realized that I could do it, just keep on pretending to be another, making me laugh as much as possible”. Of course, then success and recognition has had many. But in maturity it has not managed to enjoy honor and fame, as it has for years been fighting a degenerative disease, similar to Alzheimer’s disease.
Monica Vitti is the example of a real woman (see the photo gallery) who has never needed plastic surgery to establish herself as an icon of beauty and style. Several times he said that the producers wanted to make her nose down, a real nightmare, but in the end she won. Not only that, because she managed not to be touched up, but above all she showed that to be sexy, it is enough to have charisma.
