    And her son Carlo Ponti Jr. is a conductor

  • Steven Holloway says:

    I don’t find any surprises at all in her musical tastes.

  • fred says:

    actor?!? Euh, isn’t she an actRESS? She also performed Aida on film!! The film NL refers to is okay but never reaches the gripping heights of Simone Signoret.

  • Greg Bottini says:

    God, I had such a crush on her when I was young….

  • Alexander Platt says:

    Beautiful — thank you for sharing this.
