Italian actor Gina Lollobrigida, 95, says she will run in general elections


The Italian screen legend Gina Lollobrigida has said she is running in general elections next month because she is “fed up with quarrelling politicians”. Lollobrigida, who turned 95 in July, is endeavouring to become a senator with the Sovereign and Popular Italy party (ISP), a new Eurosceptic, anti-Mario-Draghi political alliance that opposes sending arms to Ukraine and “warmongering Atlanticism”. The last time Lollobrigida attempted to enter politics was in 1999, when she ran in the European parliamentary elections as a candidate for Romano Prodi’s Democrats. Together with Silvio Berlusconi’s Forza Italia, the close-knit alliance could win about 45% of the vote, gaining from the divisions blighting its opponents. Berlusconi, who turns 86 four days after the vote, said last week he was planning to run for senator in order to “make everyone happy”.
