As she recalls her life, her thoughts go to Vittorio De Sica and the Oscar she won, with La Ciociara, 49 years ago. Sophia, despite the cheerful crowd, looked tired, and left immediately after accepting the award.

Cars 2 - June 15
Sophia lends her "thick Neapolitan-accent" voice to the character of
Mama Topolino in the movie Cars 2, which opens in France on July 27
 and across Italy on June 22. At the photocall which takes place at the Boscolo Exedra Hotel, on June 15, she says she accepted the role for

  in NYC in 1966, when she was awarded the Star of the Year award by the
National Association of Theater Owners.

in Moscow, organized by the Federation Fund, founded in 2010 by ex-rock star Vladimir Kiselyov. Many other celebrities are flown to Moscow,
including Woody Allen. Jeremy Irons, and Steven Seagal. It is said that all stars were paid and that little or no money at all was given to the hospitals. Sophia had long been associated with Moscow's Golden Heart charity,
which was more credible, before joining the others guests this year. ShSophia's agent, Carlo Giusti, was present during her trip to the Soviet Federation.
