La Dolce Vita a Portofino

This photo of Francesco Leoni is part of a collection which is the property of Portofino Events. He's probably the most famous photographic reporter of his time.

Digital Re-processed by me :).


A sort of summer photograph album from the Gulf of Tigullio during the 1950's, when Hollywood was the land of stars and Portofino was their nocturnal playground; anyone who was anyone was there. This is one of the photo's of Sophia Loren (born September 20, 1934). She's a motion picture and stage, Academy Award-winning actress and former sex symbol, widely considered to be the most popular Italian actress of her time.


Francesco Leoni, Genova, 27 September 1925 – Genova, 3 October 2000.


Sophia Loren, geboren als Sofia Scicolone (Rome, 20 september 1934) is een Italiaans actrice. Op 14-jarige leeftijd won ze een prijs in een schoonheidswedstrijd. Een paar jaar later werd ze bij nog zo'n wedstrijd opgemerkt door filmproducer Carlo Ponti, die haar een screentest liet doen. In 1954 speelde ze haar eerste filmrol in de film L'Oro di Napoli van Vittorio de Sica. In 1957 speelde ze in haar eerste Engelstalige film The Pride and The Passion samen met Cary Grant en Frank Sinatra.
