giulietta masina 1921-1994
this brilliant actress is known in her native county as the female chaplin. ever willing to reveal her soul through her large eyes, like chaplin she is deeply comical. her role as the prostitute in 'nights of cabiria' is astonishing for its strength of character. however, it is her portrayal of 'gelsomina' in 'la strada' that she will forever be best remembered for.
from stage to screen to radio she truly lit up the world. giulietta was married and devoted to director federico fellini for fifty years. they died within five months of one another.
