On September 20, 1934, in Rome (Italy), Romilda Villani, a piano teacher, had a daughter named Sophia. The girl’s father was Riccardo Scicolone, a civil engineer from a noble aristocratic family. Despite the fact that Romilda Villani by Riccardo Scicolone 4 years later had another daughter, Maria, the parents of these two girls never officially married. Furthermore, Riccardo Scicolone even refused to provide financial assistance to Romilda and her daughters. And he didn’t even allow her youngest daughter to take the Shikolone surname. (However, this did not prevent Maria from marrying Romano Mussolini, the youngest son of the former Italian Duce, in 1962.)

But she was able to openly declare these preferences much later. She when she gained worldwide fame under the name of Sophia Loren.

It is not known what kind of school education Sofia Shikolone received and whether she received it. She herself explained it by the fact that, due to the stigma of her illegitimate son, she hated going to school, where she was harassed by her classmates. However, there was another reason: since she was little she had to work as a dishwasher and waitress in a pub run by her grandmother. The pub was very popular with the soldiers of the American occupation troops. Romilda played the piano, Maria sang. That’s how they made a living.

Sofia Scicolone’s life changed drastically when, at the age of 15, under the name Sofia Lazzaro, she participated in the beauty pageant for the title of Miss Italy, where she won second place and the title of Miss Elegance 1950.

And then the film producer Carlo Ponti, already known in Italy at that time, who was 22 years older than Sofia and loaded with a family, “set his eye” on her. For several years he tried to divorce his first wife, with whom he had two children, so that he could marry Sophia. But in Catholic Italy, this was extremely difficult to do. Then, after five years of unsuccessful attempts, Carlo and Sofia were married in Mexico, which, however, was invalidated in Italy, since Carlo Ponti’s divorce, which was registered there, was invalidated. And then they, so that Ponti would not be in the dock for bigamy, decided to move to the United States, where they both continued their professional activities in Hollywood. Only in 1966, Ponti finally divorced his first wife, and he and Sophia, who by that time had already chosen the stage name “Sophie Loren”, were able to formalize the marriage. And then for this they needed the adoption of French citizenship and the assistance of the President of France.
