Post lot text
Italian screen goddess Silvana Mangano was born in Rome in 1930. Trained as a dancer, she modelled and at the age of 16 won the “Miss Rome” title which led her to her first role in Italian Cinema. In 1949 she married producer Dino De Laurentiis. From 1945 until 1987 she starred in 38 movies, often opposite the greatest leading men at the time: Vittorio Gassman, Alberto Sordi, Edoardo De Filippo, and international stars such as Jaques Sernas, Kirk Douglas and Anthony Quinn.  During the golden age of Italian cinema, Silvana worked with many of the most sought after directors: Mario Monicelli, Pier Paolo Pasolini and Luchino Visconti. These collaborations led to her winning 3 Davide di Donatello and 3 Nastri D’Argento Awards.
