Luigia "Gina" Lollobrigida OMRI, born in Subiaco, Lazio, Kingdom of Italy, on 4th July 1927, was an actress, photojournalist & politician. Gina was one of the highest-profile European actresses of the '50s and early '60s, when she was an international sex symbol. Lollobrigida was among the last high-profile international stars from the Golden Age of Hollywood movies when she died. As her career in pictures slowed down, Gina established herself as a photojournalist, getting the big scoop of an exclusive interview with Fidel Castro during the '70s. She was an active supporter of Italian & Italian-American causes, especially the National Italian American Foundation (NIAF). Lollobrigida was presented with the NIAF Lifetime Achievement Award at the Foundation's Anniversary Gala in 2008. She sold her jewellery during 2013, donating almost US$5 million from the sale to benefit stem-cell therapy research. Gina won the Henrietta Award at the 18th Golden Globe Awards.
