A song for the late Anita Ekberg

This is the torch song from  La Dolce Vita by Federico Fellini, written by Nino Rota in tribute to the heart-stopping beauty of Anita Ekberg, who died today, aged 83. It is sung by Katyna Ranieri, the first Italian singer ever to perform at the Oscars.

  • As I think about Anita Ekberg the song I prefer is one from Bob Dylan:

    “My telephone rang it would not stop,
    It’s President Kennedy callin’ me up.
    He said, ‘My friend, Bob, what do we need to make the country grow?’
    I said, ‘My friend, John, Brigitte Bardot…Anita Ekberg…Sophia Loren…
    Country ‘ll grow'”
