Carla Bruni-Sarkozy
Monday, September 05TH, 2011 by admin
Carla Bruni Carla Bruni-Sarkozy has worn a lot of hats in her life: heiress, supermodel, singer, mother and First Lady among them. Famous for her good looks, natural talent, and a penchant for dating equally well known men, Bruni-Sarkozy is something of a force of nature. After marrying French President Nicolas Sarkozy following a whirlwind courtship, the world watched as the Italian model settled into her new role, which has now culminated in the  birth of the couple's first child together. While the relationship has caused its share of whispers and raised eyebrows, there is something...
Sofia Coppola

Sofia Coppola (Photo from wikipedia.com) When Sofia Coppola got married for the second time she chose a place that was quite significant, a clear message of just how much her family and its history has played an important role in the writer/director's life. For her August wedding the Oscar winner chose the Italian town of Bernalda, the birthplace of her grandparents, as the site of her nuptials to rocker Thomas Mars, the father of her two daughters. For the civil ceremony the stylish Sofia eschewed traditional white in favor of the most delicate shade of lavender tulle and a dress that was...
Alyssa Milano
Monday, August 29TH, 2011 by Glauco
Who's The Boss?'s Samantha Miceli was one of those seminal television characters that an entire generation of TV watchers will always remember. While Alyssa Milano may be most famous for her role as Tony Danza's daughter on the sitcom, she didn't go the way of many child stars, and instead was able to continue her successful acting career long after the show was over. These days Milano is still acting and is enjoying a new role: motherhood. On August 31st the 38-year-old Charmed actress gave birth to her first child, a baby boy name Milo Thomas. Avid Tweeter Milano, who married talent agent...
Christina Ricci
Friday, July 29TH, 2011 by Glauco
Although she carries an Italian name, this former child star born in Santa Monica in 1980 actually doesn't consider herself Italian at all, preferring her Scottish/Irish heritage. However, her looks and name testify to the Italian side of her. In any case, Ricci is a talented actress, regardless of her roots and ethnicity.   She started acting at a young age, acting in many movies such as Mermaids with Cher, and The Addams Family, her first big break. She played daughter Wednesday, and did a remarkable job. Based on that, she was cast in Steven Spielberg's Casper and has gone on to act in...
Matt LeBlanc
Tuesday, July 26TH, 2011 by Glauco
      Matt LeBlanc will always be remembered as the Italian American Joey Tribiani, in one of the most successful sit-com series ever produced: "Friends". Matt became one of the highest paid actors, and "Friends" truly marked the peak of his acting career. After ending the show,he appeared in two seasons of the "Friends" spin off  "Joey", in which he reprised the role of Tribiani, this time away from New York, in a Los Angeles based storyline. The series was not nearly as successful as "Friends" and after that, LeBlanc sort of faded out the mainstream spotlight, appearing in a few motion...
Francesco Totti
Tuesday, July 26TH, 2011 by Glauco
"Il Capitano" (The Captain) is the nickname that Francesco Totti goes by among the supporters of A.S. Roma, but others in the soccer world often refer to him, in a mostly friendly manner, as "Er Pupone" (The Big Baby). Whatever you want to call Totti, one thing is certain, he is one of the best to ever have played the game of soccer (calcio). Born in Rome in 1976 and raised there, Totti grew up in the ranks of the A.S. Roma team and has only played for the Roman side during his illustrious Serie A career. Today Totti's playing career may be wrapping up, but he remains one of the highest...
Mira Sorvino
Tuesday, July 26TH, 2011 by Glauco
  Mira Sorvino     Pretty, a bit naïve, dated Quentin Tarantino, Mira Sorvino may not exactly seem like Harvard material... This perception could not be more wrong and this woman is anything but the bimbo made famous by Hollywood. She is in fact a Harvard graduate and is fluent in Mandarin and French, much more than can be said for many of her fellow actors. On the top of this, she has won an Oscar for her performance in "Mighty Aphrodite", in which Woody Allen saw in her his muse. This is a CV that would make many of her colleagues jealous.   Mira is of course the daughter of famous...
Brittany Murphy
Monday, July 18TH, 2011 by Glauco
Many will remember Brittany Murphy from her tragic death, and the equally shocking passing of her husband not long after in similar circumstances. Still, fans of Brittany Murphy know that the actress also left behind a different kind of legacy—a resume of movies that touched and amused audiences even if her career was not yet fully developed. Brittany’s family name is Bertolotti, a clear reference to her Italian heritage, something she never made a big fuss about. Brittany Murphy’s breakthrough role was in the 1995 teenage classic Clueless, which also starred Alicia Silverstone and Paul Rudd...

Tea Leoni (Photo from Wikipedia) Sexy, beautiful, classy Tea Leoni comes from an upper class New York family of Italian heritage and was brought up in some very élite private schools. When the time for college came about, Tea dropped out in favor of following her dreams and passion, deciding to go after an acting career instead. This choice may have been a risk, but it has paid off for Tea, leading to artistic and financial success and worldwide recognition. Leoni began her career with some small parts in TV shows with her breakthrough role coming on the soap Santa Barbara. The...
Sergio Marchionne
Sunday, July 10TH, 2011 by Glauco
      Born in Italy in 1952, this manager, who apparently arrived from nowhere with a background in philosophy and was brought to Fiat as CEO by Luca Cordero di Montezemolo, has become one of the most important figures not only in the Italian economy, but in the world. Marchionne took a very different approach in turning around the fate of Fiat, which seemed to be doomed before his arrival. He made the company a self-sustaining one, rather than depending on the support of the Italian government, as was the case for decades. Marchionne restructured the company and made it very aggressive in...
