At the Capitol from 10 to 20 today the funeral home is set up for the last farewell to Lina Wertmuller, who died yesterday at 93. The funeral will be celebrated tomorrow, Saturday 11 December at 11.30 at the Church of the Artists in Piazza del Popolo, just a stone’s throw from the director’s home.
“I am very saddened by the loss of a myth and a symbol of world cinema like Lina Wertmuller and her memory will always remain in my heart”: this is how ANSA Sophia Loren. With Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni Lina Wertmuller had shot in 1978 ‘Made of blood between two men because of a widow. Political motives are suspected ‘, a film that boasts the Guinness Book of Records as the longest title in the history of cinema. And then again ‘Saturday, Sunday and Monday’, ‘Francesca e Nunziata’ and ‘Stuffed peppers and fish in the face…’. And, finally, it was also Loren who awarded him the Oscar for Lifetime Achievement in 2020.
