Le Donne Italiane

Italian politics - if you happen to follow the drama of it all - are simply dismal. Let's put it this way: the prime minister is currently embroiled in a scandal involving Bunga Bunga. And that, i miei cari amici, is just the tip of the iceberg.

So I was so happy to have come across this lovely, inspiring slideshow featuring some of the strongest, finest Italian women ever. I was especially inspired by the beautiful quotes of Anna Magnani, the actress of Roma Citta Aperta (if you haven't seen it - rent it asap): "Please don't retouch my wrinkles. It took me so long to earn them" and Sophia Loren: "There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love."
