"As an actress she is handicapped by a lack of intensity, lack of presence; the personality is somewhat lack-lustre. She switches from comedy to drama without varying her approach. Her sex-appeal is basically that of an advertisement--hoarding." --David Shipman ("The Great Movie Stars: The International Years," 1972)
Lollobrigida sculpted the statue of Artemis, goddess of the hunt (which was executed by jeweler Gianmaria Buccellati), as the symbol for the Marseilles' International Festival of Women, celebrating female film directors, producers and actresses.
"I like to be behind the camera because you can feel life differently when you are not being watched all the time. You can know the world, know the people. You can really grow inside with the experience."--Gina Lollobrigida discussing her photography in the Daily News , October 14, 1991.
She was honored by a retrospective and an award for outstanding achievement by the Vienna Film Festival (1991)
