Monica Vitti, died at just over 90 years, thirty-five of which were spent in the cinema interpreting over fifty roles.
But Monica Vitti left us twenty years ago, taken away by a degenerative disease that progressively closed the doors of the world and led her to live in a separate universe.
Her health deprived us for a long time of a great actress who we all knew was somewhere still among us and therefore made her, paradoxically, a perfect icon.
Disappearing from public life, she remained “our Monica,” the eternally young and charismatic Monica.
Not having accompanied her on her sunset boulevard, we still imagined her as the quintessence of the roles that had made her famous, iconic, and semantic she remains a restless figure, the embodiment of the many women who have claimed the right to be independent, in life as well as in attitudes.
